Persecution Watch: Prayers for Ukraine

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

Ukraine: Population: 45,3 million – today 41 million(?), Christian 78%

The Ukraine used to be the Bible belt of the Soviet sphere, looking back at a rich Christian heritage. Churches suffered greatly until the Ukraine gained independence and then was open to many evangelical church plants. As you are aware Russia attacked the Ukraine in early 2022 and the nation is now fighting for survival.

  • Please pray to the Lord that He will guide president Zelensky to negotiate an end to the war.
  • Please pray to the Lord that He will touch Putin in a very special, to put it on his heart and mind to end hostilities against the Ukraine.
  • Please pray to the Lord for a cease fire to be observed and honored by both sides.
  • Please pray to the Lord that there will be an adequate supply of medication and that doctors and nurses will not experience any shortages.
  • Pray to the Lord that He will give the Ukrainian forces the ability to supernaturally destroy drones before they reach their targets.
  • Pray to the Lord that He will protect and strengthen Ukrainian soldiers defending their homeland.
  • Pray to the Lord that He will continue to give the Ukrainian military favor to receive advance information of planned Russian attacks.
  • Pray that the remaining civilians have heating material to stay warm during the winter month, as well as electricity and food.
  • Pray for the internally displaced people to have adequate shelter and provisions.
  • Pray for the Women and their children who miss the covering of their husbands and must navigate through a different culture and unfamiliar language.
  • Pray that the Lord will comfort and give strength to the women who don’t know the whereabouts of their husbands, who are troubled not knowing if their loved ones are healthy, wounded or killed in action.
  • Pray for the Christian churches who minister to a multitude of internal refugees.
  • Pray for the Christian missionaries who tirelessly provide spiritual, medical and food support.
  • Pray for the NGO’s and like organizations not to become weary or defeated and continue to maintain the compassionate support for the people in the Ukraine. Pray for generous donors.
  • Pray to the Lord that He will bless the Pastors and saints who have restarted churches in the towns that sustained heavy damage during the fighting. 
  • Pray to the Lord that His church will emerge as a strong and vital force, a strong beacon of light in these troubled times.

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.

But I will declare forever,

I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

“All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off,

But the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.”

In General:

The capital Kyiv is full of large Evangelical churches; most evangelical growth was in Western Ukraine.  Pray for evangelical outreach to the Russian-speaking east.

Ukrainian Orthodox and Russian Orthodox are arguing over control of church buildings and legitimate authority in the nation.  

  • Pray for peace and cooperation between all who profess the name of Christ.
  • Pray for a strong church in every town and village.
  •  Pray for more Ukrainian missionaries to the Slavic world and former S.U.

  • Pray for leadership training to flourish amidst all the challenges

The War:

Children at risk – children from group homes in conquered territories are sent to Russia, cutting off contact to any surviving parents. Iranian drones are bombing Ukrainian energy infrastructure.  

  • Pray for drones and bombings to stop.

Most windows in the East were destroyed by shock waves.

  • Pray Ukrainians find ways to survive the long winter.

Russian soldiers are moving to Belarus in the north

  • Pray the war would not expand to more nations.

  • Pray for moral and spiritual healing from the horrors of war.

Millions of families are separated because they are refugees or fighting the war.

  • Pray that God would protect families and children despite all challenges.
  • Pray for Christian churches and ministries serving the hurting.

Russia:

Thousands of Russian men fled the draft -mostly to Central Asia.  These nations may get tired of many desperate men, or Russia may demand them returned, or close the exits.

  • Pray Russia would choose peace!

Russian hawks push Putin to become more violent.  

  • Pray for pragmatics or peace seekers to gain influence.

After the breakup of the Soviet Union, many Ukrainians became missionaries to Russia.  Within 10 years, most were deported.

  • Pray missionaries would again go throughout Mother Russia.

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.

Pray also for her family still waiting for asylum. May they be reunited soon.

Persecution Watch: Praying for Ukraine

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday June 9, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

Ukraine: Population: Approx. 45 million, Christians approx.. 35 million

Ukraine-Russia war: As losses mount, how long can they keep up the battle?

Ukraine had around 250,000 soldiers before the Russian invasion, but its government hasn’t said how many have died fighting Vladimir Putin’s military. .

As soon as they had finished burying a veteran colonel killed by Russian shelling, the cemetery workers readied the next hole. Inevitably, given how quickly death is felling Ukrainian troops on the front lines, the grave won’t stay empty for long.

Col. Oleksandr Makhachek left behind a widow, Elena, and their daughters Olena and Myroslava-Oleksandra. In the first 100 days of war, his grave was the 40th dug in the military cemetery in Zhytomyr, 90 miles west of the capital, Kyiv.

He was killed May 30 in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine, where the fighting is raging. Nearby, the burial notice on the also freshly dug grave of Viacheslav Dvornitskyi says he died May 27. Other graves also showed soldiers killed within days of each other — on May 10, 9, 7 and 5. And this is just one cemetery, in just one of Ukraine’s cities, towns and villages laying soldiers to rest.

  • Pray to the Lord that He will supernaturally put an end to the fighting in the Ukraine.
  1. Cease fire
  2. Armistice and negotiations
  • Pray for a change in the Russian Government, for Putin and the Hawks to be replaced by leaders seeking to end the conflict.
  • Pray that the Lord to give wisdom and discernment and to guide the steps of the Ukrainian government
  • Pray the Lord that He will continue to give Ukrainian forces advance information on Russian plans and actions.
  • Pray to the Lord to that He will continue to trouble, blind the Russian military with miscommunication, detrimental orders and sending soldiers in the wrong direction.
  • Pray that the Lord’s hand is on the Christian soldiers to be protected and not become discouraged.
  • Pray for the Chaplains in the Ukrainian army to remain strong in faith as they minister in hospitals and on the field.
  1. one of our chaplains lost 22 people in the last 30 days
  2. to comfort the mothers and children in the face of death
  • Pray that the Lord will make His presence felt to all the believers who lost loved ones.
  • Pray for churches in the Western Ukraine who minister to refugees
  • Pray for the refugees to not only find shelter but also Christian as well as trauma counseling.
  • Pray for the protection of aid workers who bring in medication and food – disregarding their safety.
  • Pray to the Lord Jesus Christ that all the people will realize their only peace is with HIM that they will turn to Him.

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.

Praying for Ukraine with Brother Michael

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for a prayer conference call for Ukraine, hosted by Persecution Watch.

The Russian Invasion into Ukraine has entered a new phase. The emphasis has shifted away from the capital City of Kyiv to the eastern provinces, to controlling Ukrainian territory from the Crimea to Luhansk in the Donbas region.

Please pray to the Father that He will protect President Zelensky and his cabinet from Russian military forces.

Pray that the Ukrainians are earnestly seeking the Lord in prayer.

Pray to the Lord that He will give the Ukrainian fighters favor, showing them how to stop the Russian aggression.

Pray that the Lord will trouble the commanding Russian leaders with lost instructions and confusing as well as contradictory orders.    

Pray that the Lord that the Ukrainian military will continue to receive advance intelligence on Russian plans and movements.

Pray that the Lord will strengthen and sustain all relief workers who have been working nonstop to answer the needs of the Ukrainian people.

Pray to the Lord that the “West” stays focused on Ukraine, does not get weary and that public opinion moves on.

Pray to the Lord that Ukrainian refugees will continue to be welcomed, and the Nations will not become weary by the multitudes seeking food and shelter.

Pray to the Lord to comfort the families who were torn apart by the war from their husbands not knowing how they are doing and will they come through this alive.

Pray to the Lord to give the opposition in Russia more visibility, or a way out of the country.

Lord we humbly ask, that You the Great almighty God, will put an end to this war and all the misery it causes.

Please join us on the prayer conference call, tonight.

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.

Andy, Persecution Watch Prayer Call Moderator

Praying for Ukraine with Brother Michael

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Sunday March 27, 2022 in a prayer conference call for Ukraine and the Persecuted Church hosted by Persecution Watch.

Psalms 55:9

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, I see violence and strife in the city.

 Psalm 55:16-19

16 As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me.

17 Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.

18 He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.

19 God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change—he will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God.

Please Pray 

A Russian general suggests that Russia only wants the Donetsk region that they have occupied for 8 years.  

  • Pray Russia decides to stop fighting and go home.

Chinese replacement parts won’t work on Navy ships that bring tanks for missiles, will sink or go home. Russian troops are further from the capital than last week. 

  • Pray Kyiv remains free.

For leaders to realize they must deal with the consequences of destruction.

  • Pray that the Russian offensive will continue to stall.
  • Pray that Russian missiles won’t fire, tanks break down, planes have electrical problems.  
  • Pray invading machinery will not work except when returning home.

Russia bombed Liev, Ukraine’s hub for supplies and refugees in the West. 

  • Pray that Western Ukraine remains a safe place.

Isa 40:28-31

” Have you not known?

Have you not heard?

The everlasting God, the LORD,

The Creator of the ends of the earth,

Neither faints nor is weary.

His understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the weak,

And to those who have no might He increases strength.

Even the youths shall faint and be weary,

And the young men shall utterly fall,

But those who wait on the LORD

Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint.

Praying for Believers in Libya and Ukraine

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday March 24, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the Persecuted Church hosted by Persecution Watch. 

Ukraine

  • Pray to the Lord that He will break the impasse as neither side can win. To give the Ukrainian president and negotiating team favor in working out a favorable settlement.
  • Please pray to the Father that He will protect President Zelensky and his cabinet from Russian military forces.
  • Pray to the Lord that Putin’s threats of nuclear military action are just posturing and that clearer heads will prevail
  • Pray for much needed supply of food and medication to reach their destinations.

Libya

Population: 6.7 million, Christian about 34,600

When a person in Libya leaves Islam to follow Christ, they face immense pressure from their families to renounce their faith. Their neighbors and the rest of the community ostracizes them, and they can be left homeless, jobless and alone. If a Libyan Christian shares his or her faith with someone else, they will likely be reported, arrested and perhaps face violent punishment. The country has no central government, so laws are not enforced uniformly, leaving Christians in danger of overt and public persecution. Targeted kidnappings and executions are always a possibility for believers. To be a safe Christian in Libya is to live a secret life of faith.

  • Pray for the believers who must keep their faith secret.
  • Pray for Libya’s government who is unstable, ruled by various power groups, to move to stability.
  • Pray to the Lord that His hand is on His believers and protection from kidnapping and executions.
  • Pray that the Lord will touch and turn the hearts of the militants.
  • Pray that believers may find other Christians for fellowship.
  • Pray that the Lord will reach many Muslims through dreams and visions.
  • Pray for the protection of Christian migrant workers.
  • Pray for Christian broadcasts to reach into Libya and for great internet coverage that will reach the lost and minister to believers.

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.
