(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, January 14, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

Let us pray and encourage one another with the Scriptures as we look to the Lord and focus on His plan.

Matthew 20:26,27  “…Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave, just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

  • Pray for church leaders and National leaders. Against arrogance, would have humility; would not manipulate.

Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your way O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart that I may fear your Name.”

  • Pray understanding, knowledge, and wisdom for believers; would be closer to God and know His ways.
  • Pray leaders of Nations would fear the LORD 

Matthew 24:4 “Jesus answered, watch out that no one deceived you.”

  • Pray believers would not be deceived.

Psalm 86:9 “All the Nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your Name.”

  • Pray for salvation for leaders of the world.

Psalm 86:2 “Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; deliver your servant who trusts in you.”

  • Pray for protection for believers who are persecuted.  Deliver them from the hand of the enemy. 

Deuteronomy 7:23 “But the LORD your God will deliver them over to you, throwing them into great confusion until they are destroyed.”

  • Pray the enemies of the church would be put to great confusion. 

Deuteronomy 7:15 “The LORD will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on those who hate you.”

  • Pray for supernatural health and healing for believers. 

Psalm 86:17 “Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.”

  • May God’s enemies see supernatural acts of power in defending his people; May they consider their ways and turn from their wickedness. 
  • Pray believers would be comforted in their various losses.

Psalm 86:4 “Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.”

  • Pray for a spirit of joy.

Psalm 86:16 “Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.”

  • Pray for increased strength.

Matthew 21:21  “Jesus replied, ‘I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.’ “

  • Pray for increased faith; pray for the supernatural gift of faith. 

Psalm 86:12 “I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your Name forever.”

  • Pray believers would praise the Lord with all their heart; pray Yah’s Name and Kingdom be glorified.

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.

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)

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.
