Psalms 55:9

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, I see violence and strife in the city.

 Psalm 55:16-19

16 As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me.

17 Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.

18 He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.

19 God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change—he will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God.

Please Pray 

A Russian general suggests that Russia only wants the Donetsk region that they have occupied for 8 years.  

  • Pray Russia decides to stop fighting and go home.

Chinese replacement parts won’t work on Navy ships that bring tanks for missiles, will sink or go home. Russian troops are further from the capital than last week. 

  • Pray Kyiv remains free.

For leaders to realize they must deal with the consequences of destruction.

  • Pray that the Russian offensive will continue to stall.
  • Pray that Russian missiles won’t fire, tanks break down, planes have electrical problems.  
  • Pray invading machinery will not work except when returning home.
  • Pray that the Lord will confuse the Russian leaders, like He did for Gideon.
  • Pray for safety for President Zelensky and his cabinet, and their families.
  • Pray against the spirit of brutality and the spirit of killing.
  • Pray that Ukrainians earnestly seek the Lord in prayer.
  • Pray that the people who stayed in Ukraine, have adequate food and medical supplies.

Isaiah 45:8a

 “Open up, O heavens, and pour out your righteousness …

  • Pray that Ukraine would have superiority over their sky-no Russian planes, Ukraine able to fly everything.

Russia bombed Liev, Ukraine’s hub for supplies and refugees in the West. 

  • Pray that Western Ukraine remains a safe place.

Isa 40:28-31

” Have you not known?

Have you not heard?

The everlasting God, the LORD,

The Creator of the ends of the earth,

Neither faints nor is weary.

His understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the weak,

And to those who have no might He increases strength.

Even the youths shall faint and be weary,

And the young men shall utterly fall,

But those who wait on the LORD

Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint. 

Michael Laird, Persecution Watch Prayer Call Moderator

What is Persecution Watch?

Persecution Watch is a U.S. national prayer conference call ministry that prays specifically for the global Persecuted Church. For over a decade, Blaine Scogin led this national network of believers who faithfully pray for the persecuted and the global harvest for the Kingdom of God. The group meets via a free call-in service every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday night at 9pm Eastern time in the United States (please check your time zone). Blaine also served as Prayer Director for Voice of the Persecuted, and the missions became one. Brother Blaine passed into glory on December 26, 2019. It was truly a blessing for all of us to serve alongside this dear man of God and he will be greatly missed. The prayer mission of Persecution Watch remains an important part of our mission. Voice of the Persecuted is committed to continue the prayer conference call for the persecuted along with the dedicated Persecution Watch prayer warrior team.

Prior to the passing of Brother Blaine, he confirmed the passing of the torch as prayer conference call leader to Nadia Dybvik. Nadia has a burdened heart for the persecuted and is a prayer warrior standing in the gap for them. She joined the Persecution Watch prayer team in 2013 and has been part of the core ever since. Before becoming the prayer call leader, she served in the role of prayer moderator since 2015. Blaine chose Nadia for her faithfulness to pray for the persecuted and her strong commitment to the Persecution Watch mission. We are blessed not only with her gift of prayer, but her genuine love for every brother and sister in Christ that comes on the call to pray. May the Lord continue to bless Nadia and the prayer team in the mission and their personal lives.

“Pray for us” is the number one request that we hear from the persecuted. As the members of the first century Church were moved by the Holy Spirit to pray, we too must continue to serve those suffering persecution by lifting them up to the Lord through prayer.

On occasion, persecuted brothers and sisters have been invited on the conference call to share the trials they are facing. The team serves to encourage them by washing their feet in Spirit led prayer. Time is often reserved for those on the call to ask questions. We believe this helps to gain a better understanding of the situation that persecuted Christians endure in their specific nations. Q&A also helps us to focus our prayers based on their current needs.

Persecution Watch also hosts callers who want to pray united from other nations. If your heart is perplexed by the sufferings of our persecuted brothers and sisters, you no longer need to pray alone.

We welcome all who desire to pray for the persecuted church and consider it a joy to pray together with you. If you are new to the call and cannot find your voice, listen in and pray silently or on mute. We are grateful and thank the Lord for bringing us all together to pray in agreement for our persecuted family in Christ. We can all be prayer warriors on this call!

God bless and protect you in your faithfulness to serve.
