(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday, June 25, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.
As we continue our prayers from last Saturday’s conference call please join us.
Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”
- Pray the church would trust in the goodness and sovereignty of God no matter what.
Psalm 43:3 Send forth your light and your truth; let them guide me … “
Ephesians 4:14 “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.”
- Pray church would not be deceived; would try the spirits and be led into all truth.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
- Pray for increased unity and strength for the church.
Ecclesiastes 4:2 “I saw the tears of the oppressed—and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors—and they have no comforter.“
- Pray the Holy Spirit would indeed comfort those who are oppressed. And We know the Lord puts our tears into a bottle.
Ephesians 4:26 “In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.”
- Pray the church would be able to let go of anger; be able to pray for and be willing to forgive their persecutors.
Psalm 43:5 “Why are you downcast O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.”
- Pray much hope would spring up in the church.
- Keep praying for a spirit of praise
(God inhabits our praise, He deserves all glory and praise).
James 1:12 “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
- Pray the church would persevere under trial.
- Thank God for His great and precious promises.
James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”
- Pray for wisdom for the church; to know when and what to speak, strategies, in raising children, etc.
Ephesians 4:11 “It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers.”
- Pray for ministers in those offices; anoint those obedient to the Word and bring down those who are counterfeits.
Ephesians 4:13 “Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
- Keep praying for unity and maturity of the church; they would not turn aside because of family pressure or other persecution.
Ephesians 5:3 “But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.”
- Pray against sexual immorality and addiction to pornography and any other ungodly addiction.

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.
