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.

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in Qatar

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday August 4, 2022, in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

QATAR: Population: 2.8 million, Christians 370,000 plus

Christians in Qatar are primarily foreigners who tend to be migrant workers. These foreign Christians are much freer to live out their faith in Qatar than the nationals, although foreigners might also experience pressure. And foreign churches are often monitored by the government and limited to specific areas.

A small number of indigenous converts form the other group of Christians in Qatar. These believers face extreme pressure from their Muslim families and community. The country doesn’t officially recognize conversion from Islam, which causes legal troubles and loss of status, child custody and property. Foreign converts from Islam may be able to avoid some pressure by joining a more international community, but the bottom line is that in Qatar both indigenous and migrant converts risk discrimination, harassment and police surveillance for their faith.

What has changed in Qatar? Qatar jumped 11 spots from last year’s 2022 World Watch List. Violence against Christians rose sharply because many churches were forced to stay closed after COVID-19 restrictions. The rest of the pressures faced by believers in Qatar are intense and a daily burden on those who follow Jesus.

The risks faced by Christians, especially converts from Islam to Christianity, depend on the person’s national origin. Native Qatari converts are the most vulnerable to danger, while foreign Christians may be somewhat freer to worship, as long as they do so in ways the government can tolerate.

  • Pray for the monarchy in Qatar. Ask that God would soften the hearts of the Emir and his government, and that they would open their hearts to the truth of Jesus’ love and grace.
  • Pray for the migrant Christians in Qatar. Pray they would be protected from the brutal and abusive treatment that so many foreign workers face in Qatar. Ask God to protect and preserve His people.
  • Pray that MBB believers would know they are not alone and ask God to remind them that He is there and in control and that He has His hand of protection on them.
  • Pray for native Qataris who convert to Christianity and must sustain their faith in isolation and secrecy. Ask God to fill their hearts with the sense of His presence and care.
  • Pray to the Lord that He will blind, confuse, and distract the radical Muslims who plan to do violence to Christians
  • Ask the Lord that to bind the forces of darkness that the churches will reopen that had been closed due to COVID19 restrictions.  
  • Pray for church leaders to be granted protection and wisdom in covert ministry work.
  • Pray that the Lord will give believers boldness, courage, and protection in witnessing as sharing the gospel is forbidden.  
  • Pray that the internet will have great messages for Muslims investigating Christianity and edify Christians.
  • Pray that persecuted believers will not become bitter and be able to love and forgive.
  • Pray to the Lord that the World Cup Activities this year will show the world the Qatari ways of oppressing Christianity.
  • Pray to the Lord that His church will increase, that He will do a mighty work in Qatar, that the number of believers will grow 10-100-fold.

We are continuing to lift up these persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

Leah Sharibu prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018. Pray for her release.

Alice Loksha Ngaddah was kidnapped in February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.

Pastor Wang Yi to be released from Chinese prison.

Anita a Christian convert, facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.

Praying for Believers and Muslims in Saudi Arabia

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday July 12, 2022, in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

Dear Prayer Warriors, as I was seeking God’s guidance this morning, I was led to Hebrews 10:19-22.

“19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.”

Ephesians 3:12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”

The Hajj is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to MeccaSaudi Arabia,[2] the holiest city for Muslims. Hajj is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by all adult Muslims who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the journey, and of supporting their family during their absence from home. (source) One million Muslims will make the pilgrimage in 2022. This year, Hajj began on the evening of July 7 and ends on the evening of July 12, tonight.

  • I welcome you tonight to pray with me for there is no Muslim in the cities of Mecca or Medina that the Holy Spirit cannot reach!

POPULATION in Saudi Arabia: 35,263,000 / CHRISTIANS: 1,200,000

What does persecution look like in Saudi Arabia?

The majority of the Christians in Saudi Arabia are foreigners who temporarily live and work in the country. Most of these workers come from low- and middle-income countries, and there are numerous reports of migrant workers being abused and being subjected to horrific working and living conditions. The COVID-19 pandemic made this reality even more obvious, as spikes in infections tended to center in migrant communities where sanitation and social distancing were much more difficult. Christian foreign workers can be targeted for their faith since it’s another way to abuse a worker. Foreign Christians are heavily restricted from sharing their faith or gathering for worship, and any actions outside of the norm can lead to detention and deportation.

There are converts from Islam in Saudi Arabia. Those who came from majority-Muslim countries likely live and work in communities that reflect the cultural norms of their home—so they can be at risk if their social context is opposed to conversion. The few converts who are Saudi Arabian are usually forced to live out their faith in secrecy, risking violence, divorce and more. Nevertheless, there have been some Saudi Christians in recent years who have been bold enough to share their faith, at great risk to their lives.

What has changed this year?

Christian persecution remains high in Saudi Arabia and has gotten worse in the last year. The country remains an extremely difficult place to be a Christian, especially for any native Saudi who finds Jesus.

Who is most vulnerable to persecution?

The level of persecution in Saudi Arabia is generally the same all over the country, although social control is likely to be higher in rural areas. A possible exception are Western expatriate compounds where there is less control and pressure to adhere to strict Islamic norms.

Prayer Points

  • Many Christians in Saudi Arabia are migrant workers who are already abused for their minority status. Pray for foreign Christians, that they will be protected from mistreatment and will be able to find a Christian community where they can grow in faith and be trained to advance the gospel.
  • Pray for the secret Saudi believers who must hide their faith from friends and family. Ask God to help them know they aren’t alone.
  • Saudi Arabia is home to the Muslim holy sites of Mecca and Medina. The Saudi expression of Islam is often radical and intensely opposed to any deviation. Ask God to soften the hearts of religious leaders and the monarchy, that they would be open to allowing other religions to worship freely in Saudi Arabia.

We are continuing to lift up these persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

Alice Loksha Ngaddah was kidnapped in February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.

Leah Sharibu prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018. Pray for her release.

Pastor Wang Yi to be released from Chinese prison.

Anita a Christian convert, facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran for his release and his family as their persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence.

Persecution Watch: Praying for the Jewish and Muslim people

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday, April 23, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

We need to keep praying for Israel.  Tonight (Saturday evening) begins the 7th day of Passover, which is a holy festival.

It is also the 22nd day of Ramadan, the night after “the night of power”.  There are Muslims who feel empowered for violence to make the entire Middle East Islamic.

Israel is a testimony that the God of Israel is the true God and a thorn in the side of Islam. Satan wants nothing more than to eliminate Israel.  

But God says “no”, and His Word stands.

  • Pray for unity in the Spirit (there is no other unity possible) among Jewish, Muslim and all other believers. (It is interesting that this chapter follows Romans 11)

There has been much violence in Israel and on the Temple Mount.  Most of the world seems to be condemning Israel.

Psalm 43:3 “Send forth Your light and Your Truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.”

  • Pray for Truth.
  • Pray against spirit of violence; pray for angelic protection for all people who are not trying to harm others.
  • Pray from Lord’s prayer:  “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”   Amen!

We are continuing to lift up these persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

  • Leah Sharibu: prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018. Pray for her release.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah: kidnapped in February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.
  • Pastor Wang Yi to be released from Chinese prison.
  • Anita, a Christian convert, facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.
  • Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran for his release and his family as their persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence.
  • 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)

Join the Conference Call to Pray For Israel

(Voice of the Persecuted) We invite you to join us on Saturday, March 19, 2022, in a prayer conference call for Israel and the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

While most attention has been on the Russian war in Ukraine, which is reasonable. We also know that the killing, kidnapping, burning of villages and subsequent refugees in Africa has not stopped. We have finished celebrating Purim, when the Almighty stepped in already knowing what He would do to preserve Israel and destroy those who tried to destroy the Jewish people. Dear Prayer Warriors, I feel an urgency to pray for Israel.

We thank you, Adonai, that You are always at work, often behind the scenes, to preserve Your people, both the Israelites and those who have been grafted in.

Psalm 83:4-5 “Come, they say, let us destroy them from being a Nation that the name of Israel be remembered no more. With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against You …

  • Pray for Israel’s protection, as Iran and its proxies have Israel physically surrounded.
  • Pray for the security forces; grant them discernment; show them how to stop every terrorist plot.

The P5+1 is still negotiating on a nuclear deal.

Exodus 23:32 “Do not make a covenant with them or with their gods.

  • Pray this nuclear deal will not stand.

Proverbs 29:25 “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord will be kept safe.”

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

  • Pray that those in leadership would not fear man or be manipulated by fear; would not stop Israel from possessing its land.
  • Pray that government leaders, and all Israelites would trust in the Lord and ask for wisdom and understanding that they may have what they need.
  • Pray for wisdom regarding the Russia/Ukraine conflict so they will not feel bullied into making bad decisions.
  • Pray would raise up godly advisors for all the government leaders (Proverbs 11:14)

Passover and Ramadan overlap next month, which historically has brought increased terrorism and unrest.

Isaiah 57:19-21 “… Peace, peace to those far and near, says the Lord, and I will heal them. But the wicked are like the tossing sea which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud. There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked.

  • Pray for a spirit of calm in all the believers to help change the atmosphere; pray against the spirit of violence.
  • Pray for believers to pray for their enemies and be able to love them in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Jeremiah 33:12 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In this place, desolate without men or animals — in all its towns there will again be pastures for shepherds to rest their flocks.

An article from the Jerusalem Post this month showed photos of IDF soldiers clashing with the Bedouins while protesting forestation of the desert. They are against planting trees!

There is a problem with lack of governance in the Negev. 

PM Bennett said that we are dealing with chronic problems that are constantly being put off. Regavim, a public movement dedicated to the protection of Israel’s national lands and resources, warned “if we continue on the trajectory we are in right now, we will lose the Negev.” The Negev is more than 60% of Israel’s landmass.

  • Pray Israel’s government would plant the trees it has planned according to God’s Word.
  • Pray Israel would step up and be able to govern this area.

Thomas Nides, the US Ambassador to Israel, said that settlement growth infuriates him. He strongly pressured Israel to not build in the E1 corridor NE of Jerusalem. This is because the USA does not want to hinder the “two state solution” creating “Palestine”, and anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist Islamic State on Israel’s God promised land.

  • Pray forIsrael will not face pressure into a move that would curse both Israel and the United States.
  • Pray the United States would repent of its ungodly desires.

Jeremiah 31:8 “See, I will bring them from the land of the North and gather them from the ends of the earth. Among them will be the blind and the lame, expectant mothers and women in labor; a great throng will return.”  

Thankfully Pnina Tamano-Shata, Israel’s Aliyah and Integration Minister, formerly known as the Ministry of Immigration, is working to remove many bureaucratic barriers.

  • Pray to bring the Jewish people safely out of Ukraine and Russia and other countries into Israel.
  • Let this influx of refugees allow more Messianic Jews to enter Israel; to remove bureaucratic barriers that make it harder to immigrate.
  • May there be resources for this great influx of people: new housing, including in new areas, jobs, language classes, and other needs, to go forth to possess the Land.

Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

  • Pray that all this shaking would cause more Jews (and others) to seek You.
  • May they find salvation during this Passover season; open their eyes that they may connect the Passover lamb with the Lamb of God and the blood.
  • Pray for an increase of divine encounters; pray for discipling of new believers; pray new believers would not face pressure by family or rabbis to turn away.

We are continuing to lift-up persecuted witnesses to the Lord: 

  • Leah Sharibu, 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 release from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.
  • 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.

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.

The Ignored Pandemic: 360 Million Christians Persecuted Worldwide

(by Raymond Ibrahim) The year 2021 “saw the worst persecution of Christians in history”—with an average of 16 Christians butchered for their faith every single day.

This is according to the World Watch List-2022 (WWL), which was recently published by the international humanitarian organization, Open Doors.  The report ranks the top 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted for their faith. Annually published and released at the beginning of each year, the WWL uses data from field workers and external experts to quantify and analyze persecution worldwide.

According to the WWL-2022 (covering from Oct. 1, 2020 – Sept. 30, 2021), “over 360 million Christians suffer high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith—a rise of 20 million from last year. The number represents one in seven Christians worldwide. This year records the highest levels of persecution since the first list was published 29 years ago…”

For this same reporting period, 5,898 Christians were murdered “for their faith,” a number representing a 24% increase from 2021 (when only 4,761 Christians were killed).  Additionally, “6,175 believers [were] detained without trial, arrested, sentenced or imprisoned,” and 3,829 Christians were abducted.

Perhaps even more reflective of the hate for Christianity, 5,110 churches and other inanimate Christian buildings (schools, monasteries, etc.), were attacked and profaned.

Crunching these numbers into daily averages, the above statistics mean that every single day around the world, more than 16 Christians were murdered for their faith; 27 were either illegally arrested and imprisoned by non-Christian authorities, or abducted by non-Christian actors; and 14 churches were destroyed or desecrated.

For the first time since these WWL reports were published, Afghanistan, which for years was usually ranked the #2 worst nation (following North Korea) shot up to the #1 spot, meaning “Afghanistan is now the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian.”  Additionally,

Praying Against Antisemitism and Global Strife

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Tuesday January 29, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

The world situation, including Israel, and antisemitism has been foremost on my mind. There is so much to pray for that it is hard to begin.

Holocaust Remembrance Day was Thursday of this week.  In Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Boca Raton flyers in plastic bags with a rock were thrown into driveways saying, “Every aspect of the covid agenda is Jewish”, giving the names of government officials, scientists, CEOs who are Jewish.  Antisemitism has dramatically increased in the world.  In France, it has increased 75% over 2020, with a 37% increase in violent attacks. 

There were dozens of attacks during the 11 days when Israel and Hamas were exchanging fire. Soccer fans in Belgium do Nazi salutes and chant about killing Jews.  Such chants occur regularly in Europe and in the Netherlands, and it is spreading to other venues like graduation parties.  

The book “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, very antisemitic, are being sold very successfully by all the major book sellers.

Barnes and Noble argues that “IF this book is genuine, it might cause some of us to take a wary view on world affairs”, strongly implying that this book may in fact be true.

A Tennessee school board voted unanimously to remove the Pulitzer Prize winning novel “Maus” about his father’s Holocaust experience.  Parents said it might find the book “anxiety provoking” because it shows people hanging and the killing of children.

The United Nations is notoriously anti-Israel.  The UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) decided to fund a new “commission of inquiry” to solely investigate Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. Every year the UNGA routinely passes series of blatant anti-Israel resolutions:  17 in 2021.  This month it called upon Israel to withdraw from “occupied Syrian Golan” and give it to the Assad regime.  

The Biden administration told Israel, Greece, and Cyprus it will no longer support a natural gas pipeline from Israel to Europe in order not to get Russia and Turkey upset.

Israel and Lebanon are in a dispute regarding maritime borders, including oil drilling rights.

The children in most of the Arab world, and very strongly in Gaza, Syria and other places are taught that the Jews are responsible for their suffering and that they stole the land they are on.  

Everyday rocks capable of killing people are throw by the Arabs in Gaza and also in other parts of Israel.  Last year according to reports, there were 1,775 attacks. People were killed, including a 4-year-old girl.

Israel is determined to stop Iran from having nuclear weapons whether the West makes an agreement or not.  Iran is determined to have them.  Israeli fighter jets and refueling planes held massive drill over the Mediterranean aimed at Tehran.  Iran is testing ballistic missles that can carry nuclear bombs to most of Europe.  

Yet UK, France, Germany, USA continue to negotiate with Iran in Vienna.

China, Russia, and Iran held maritime joint exercises in the Indian Ocean.  January 1st was their third one.  Iranian’s leader Ebrahim Raisi presented Moscow with draft documents on strategic ties that would cement a joint collaboration for the next 20 years.

Houthi attacks from Yemen on the UAE did substantial damage, using a combination of ballistic and cruise missiles as well as drones. Many missiles and drones were intercepted, but many were not.

Israel is considering her position on the Ukraine / Russia crisis.  Since 2014 Israel has maintained neutrality due to Russia’s significant military presence in Syria as well as Israel’s strong ties with Ukraine in a variety of areas. Israel volunteered to mediate, but Putin refused.

  • Pray for the church and others to rise up and combat these lies, whether on flyers, in books; pray these flyers will not find good ground.
  • Pray books about the Holocaust be allowed in the schools.
  • Pray that the church in Europe would rise up with the Jewish community against the spread of antisemitism.
  • Pray protection for the Jewish people in France, Poland, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands– all of Europe.
  • Pray antisemitism would lead to more people fulfilling God’s agenda of bringing the Jewish people back to the land of Israel.
  • Pray the US would stand with Israel; the US abstained in a UN vote on an important issue recently; pray US would change its stance on the natural gas pipeline to Europe.  Pray for wisdom for the leaders of all these governments.
  • Pray against the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) movement pushed by the UN and many Nations.
  • Pray for a fair and Godly resolution with Israel and Lebanon.
  • Pray that Israel would know how to deal with the rock throwing.
  • Pray for wisdom for Israel’s leaders; have fear of God; seek Godly counsel; not rely on their own strength.
  • Pray Israel would know what or what not to do regarding Iran.
  • Pray confusion among Israel’s enemies.
  • Pray protection for Israel and her true allies; for gathering of all necessary intelligence.

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

  • Leah Sharibu, 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, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.
  • 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.
