Living in Exciting Times with God in Control

United with the Persecuted


Share their stories Knowledge is power!



(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday, February 11, 2023, in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

God, Adonai, Yah, continually promises to be with us, protect us, provide for us. Everywhere we read in the Word, He tells us and reminds us of His love and faithfulness.

Deuteronomy 33:3  “Surely it is You who love the people; all the holy ones are in Your hand. At Your feet they all bow down, and from You receive instruction.

  • Pray that those who know the Lord would have increased faith, knowing Adonai loves them and they are in the Lord’s hand.
  • Pray for instruction, guidance, from the Holy Spirit as they seek it.

Deut. 33:10  “He teaches Your precepts to Jacob and your law to Israel.  He offers incense before You and whole burnt offerings on Your altar.” 

  • Pray for Godly teachers who rightly divide the Word of truth; pray for new believers to be discipled.
  • Pray for Godly prayers and worship, to worship in Spirit and truth.

Deut. 33:11  “Bless all his skills, O LORD, and be pleased with the work of his hands. Smite the loins of those who rise up against him; strike his foes till they rise no more.”

  • May believers have skills and gifts that make room for them, to give them employment opportunities they would not have otherwise.
  • Pray their enemies would fall before those being persecuted and rise no more to persecute them.  Pray for supernatural victory.

Deut. 33:12  “Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in Him, for He shields them all day long; and the one the LORD loves rests between His shoulders.”

  • Pray for angelic protection.
  • Pray for peace and rest in the LORD, keeping hearts and mind fixed on Him.

Deut. 33:13  “May the LORD bless his land with the precious dew from heaven above and with the deep waters that lie below;”

  • Pray believers would not be forced to flee from their ancestral land. 
  • Pray their land would produce abundant harvests; pray for provision.

Deut. 33:19a  “They will summon peoples to the mountain and there offer sacrifices of righteousness.”

  • Pray believers would demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit; they would be light and salt.

Psalm 108:1  “My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul”.

  • Pray the persecuted would be able to praise, sing and rejoice in the goodness of God.
  • Pray for endurance.

Psalm 108:3  “I will praise you, O LORD, among the Nations; I will sing of You among the peoples.”

  • Open doors to proclaim the gospel to others; give believers courage.

Psalm 83:16  “Cover their faces with shame so that men will seek Your Name, O LORD.”

  • Pray persecutors would receive salvation; pray their God would be put to shame, as in Egypt.

Psalm 102:28  “The children of Your servants will live in your presence; their descendants will be established before You.”

  • Praises for this promise that our children and our grandchildren would know the LORD.

Again, we want to lift-up 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
  • 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.
  • Pray for Ryan Kohler, pilot for Mission Aviation who is in prison in Mozambique. While flying supplies to orphanages in the Northeast of the country, he and two others were detained and accused of supporting terrorism.

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.
