(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday, January 7, 2022, in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch

Psalm 75:1. “we give thanks to you O God, we give thanks, for your name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds. 

  • Pray for a spirit of thanksgiving. 
  • Pray for boldness and opportunities to proclaim God’s wonderful deeds.

Psalm 75:7,10  “But it is God who judges: He brings one down and exalts another.”  “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”

  • Pray wicked rulers would be thrust down and replaced by righteous ones; let those who know Adonai replace them. 

Psalm 70:1 (This psalm is basically the same as Psalm 40:13-17).  “Hasten O God to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me.”

  • Pray for the Lord to deliver and protect those being persecuted. 

Psalm 70:2 “May those who seek my life be put to shame and confusion; May all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.”

  • Pray the enemies of the Lord would be put to confusion and be shamed.

Psalm 70:4 “But May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; May those who love your salvation always say, ‘Let God be exalted’.”

  • Pray the persecuted would be able to rejoice in spite of problems; pray Jesus would be magnified above their problems.

Matthew 16:10 “Or the seven loaves for the 4,000, and how many basketfuls you gathered?”

  • Pray for multiplication of provisions. 

Matthew 16:12 “Then they understood that he was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Saducees.”

  • Pray against false teaching and lies; that God’s people would not be deceived. 

Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

  • Pray God’s people would take the authority given to them; know how and when to use this authority; know how to use the keys to the kingdom. 

Matthew 16:24 “Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me’.”

  • Pray the church would be able to do just that, to follow Messiah, having faith knowing that this world is not their home; pray for increased faith. 

Matthew18:6 “But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

  • Pray for children of believers, especially those who are persecuted. 

Matthew 18:15 “If your brother sins against you, go, and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.”

  • Pray for reconciliation among brothers. Pray for unity among believers and denominations 

Matthew 18:35 “This is how my Heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”

  • Pray believers would be able to forgive one another and also their enemies; also, to pray for them

Pray for the Harvest!

  • “I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me” (Acts 26:18)

Again, we want to lift these persecuted witnesses to the Lord:  

  • Leah Sharibu, a prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for her release.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah, kidnapped February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.
  • Pray For Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita to make an easy transition into her new culture and that the Lord will be gracious in bringing her family members where they too will be able to freely worship our Lord without fear..
  • For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years.

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.
