Tonight on Persecution Watch: ‘This is the Life of the Martyrs’

The Christian Martyrs’ Last Prayer, painting by Jean-Leon Gerome

(Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, all brothers and sisters, I was deeply touched by the following statement of Pastor Wang Yi.

“When we see the martyrs, when we see their witnesses, we know that redemptive history is progressing; we know that the end time – although we do not know which day it will be – is near. Our hearts will then be lightened; we will no longer think so much about the things on earth but more about the things in heaven. We will no longer think so much about the things of the present age but more about the things in the coming age. We will no longer think so much about ourselves but more about others. This is the life of the martyrs; this is a mark of Christ’s second coming in the end times; this is a mark in the life of a pilgrim.”

Our dear brother sincerely means what he says. The fruits of his faith is evident his life. Wang Yi has been sentenced to 9 years in prison for proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His zeal and boldness reflects his love for the Lord, his brothers and sisters and for the lost. He is such an encourager not only for Chinese believers, but the entire Body of Christ!

As the Holy Spirit leads you, I welcome you to come on the call, tonight and pray with us for the Persecuted Church.

In Christ love.

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 (please check your time zone). Blaine also served as Prayer Director for Voice of the Persecuted and our missions became one. The prayer mission of Persecution Watch is an important part of our own. With the passing of Blaine into glory on December 26, 2019, Voice of the Persecuted is committed to continue the prayer conference call for the persecuted along with our dedicated prayer warrior team.

On occasion, persecuted brothers and sisters have been invited on the call to share the trials they’re 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’re new to the call and can’t 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!

Andrew Brunson Speaks to European Parliment, Releases Book and Records Song Written in Prison

Pastor Andrew Brunson suffered exteme persecution at the hands of the Turkish government – Photo: Fady Gergis Youtube capture

(Voice of the Persecuted) American Pastor Andrew Brunson recently spoke to members of the European Parliament in Brussels. Andrew shared what it was like to live as a pastor in Turkey since 1993. He described those 25 years as “twenty-three by choice, two by force in the prisons”, and as spending those combined years telling people about the Good News of Jesus Christ. Though he and his wife suffered in Turkey, Andrew said they still loved the Turkish people and have no regrets they went there and did the work that made him a target for persecution. Andrew started several churches and had done this openly, with nothing to hide, in front of Turkish authorities. “It wasn’t a job for me. I fully believe in what we did, and I don’t try to hide that my call is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. I believe He is the only way of salvation and I don’t apologize for saying that. We spent 25 years in Turkey not to undermine the system in any way but to bring God’s offer of eternal life.”

Turkey has a large unreached people group who have never heard the Gospel of Christ, which is why Brunson agreed to go when asked all those years ago. It may surprise you that the Turkish people are often forgotten in prayer, but Pastor Brunson’s imprisonment has changed that. During his incarceration, Brunson was told about the unprecedented prayer movement taking place on his behalf. He said he didn’t feel worthy of it, but certainly needed prayer and was very grateful. As basically an unknown, he wondered why millions of people were praying for him. He concluded that God was using this with intentions to pour prayer into Turkey. “I rode a wave of prayer out of Turkey but…there was a tsunami of prayer that crashed into Turkey that is going to bring great blessing to that country…God was using my imprisonment for good in that way.”

Background: In 2016, the Brunson’s had believed they were called into the local police station to receive long term visa’s, but instead told there was an order for their arrest and they would be held for deportation. It was an unusual detainment for a Westerner who would normally be notified weeks in advance about deportation. They spent 13 days in the center under total silence without knowing why they had been detained and no legal or consular services. Andrew said that he remembers seeing the U.S. Consulate being turned away at the gates of the deportation center. They repeatedly asked what was happening and when they would be deported but only told, Ankara will decide. At the end of the 13 days, his wife, Norine was released but Andrew was imprisoned for “terrorism” for more than two years. Not wanting to leave him, Norine remained in Turkey during his imprisonment.

Attempts by Ankara to use Brunson as a political pawn for the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan failed. The U.S. responded to the imprisonment and false espionage and terror-related charges against Brunson with sanctions. On August 1, 2018, the U.S. Department of Treasury imposed sanctions on two Turkish government officials who were involved in the detention of Brunson. Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gül and Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu had their assets frozen in the United States, they were prohibited from traveling to the U.S., or engaging in any financial transactions with American citizens. On August 9, the Trump Adminstration raised tariffs on Turkish products. Erdogan followed with tariffs on U.S. products. The U.S. sanctions proved to put a greater pressure on Turkey and on October 12, 2018, Brunson was convicted on the charge of aiding terrorism, but sentenced to time served. He was released from Turkish custody and immediately returned to the United States.

During the European Parliament meeting, Andrew thanked the MEP’s for there concern about religious freedom and using their position to advance it. He also warned of the heightened level of pressure now being experienced by Christians in Turkey. Many lies were often shared about Brunson in the Turkish media supported and controlled by Erdogan’s Islamic government. He some what became the face of Christianity in Turkey. Andrew said there’s been a significant increase of hate speech, tension and distrust since his case.

“I think the environment has been created so when there is increased persecution against Christians, now most Turks are conditioned to say, They deserve it,” he added.

As we at Voice of the Persecuted asked you to pray for Andrew from the beginning of his detention, we now plead with you to keep Christians in Turkey as well as the Turkish people in your prayers.

During the session, Andrew also told the MEP’s about an interesting dream he had in prison about Turkey, Iran and Russia. Andrew said he believed it was God inspired. Voice of the Persecuted highly recommends that you watch the video below of Brunson’s full speech in the European Parliament.

Inspiring

In his most difficult time as a prisoner in Turkey, Andrew wrote a song in Buca Maximum Security Prison only two weeks after the Turkish government falsely accused him of being a spy and helping to lead a coup attempt. These new charges carried an automatic three life sentences in solitary confinement with no parole. Andrew sang this song every day for the remainder of his two years in prison. Listen as Andrew’s explains the story behind the song.

With the help of Fady Gergis, Andrew’s song titled, Worthy Of My All – is now available as a free download. He recorded it at International House of Prayer in Kansas City (IHOPKC). Gergis said, “This song carries such a powerful testimony of continuing to believe that Jesus is worthy while almost having no hope of getting out of prison.” You can download it for free at this link.

#Thanksgiving Place Setting to Remember the Persecuted #NotForgotten

Photo: Voice of the Persecuted

(Voice of the Persecuted) As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving and the blessings of God and family, again we ask for you to remember millions of our brothers and sisters around the world who are being persecuted. Many brothers and sisters worship in secret. Large numbers are in hiding, refugee camps, brutal prisons or held as captives completely cut off from their families. Their crime? Choosing faith in Jesus Christ and refusing to deny him as their Lord and Savior.  It’s critical that we remember the Persecuted Church and stand in solidarity with them. Therefore, can you place a setting on your holiday table in remembrance of our persecuted family in Christ? The empty place setting at your Thanksgiving dinner table will serve as a reminder to pray for all those wrongfully imprisoned and being persecuted for their Christian faith around the world.

With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:18-20

As we sit down to dinner, praise the Lord giving thanks that we live in a nation with protected religious freedom and the right to worship our Lord without fear of being persecuted. Remember to include our persecuted Church family in our prayers. Ask your family and friends if they can join you to pray daily for those suffering. Let’s get America praying!

Please share a picture of the place setting on your social media pages with the hashtags #Thanksgiving and #NotForgotten. It greatly encourages the persecuted to see others are remembering to pray for them. Share your photo with us so we can pass it along to them.

Praying for the peace of our Lord to wash over you and your families. That anger or animosity can be put aside and love is shared by all at your gatherings. May you and your family spend the day counting all your blessings and thanking God for every single one. That you will shine the Light with a heart full of love allowing nothing to steal your joy. That my friends is a personal choice we can all choose this day, regardless of our situations or the people around us.

Happy Thanksgiving and may God greatly bless you!

Lois Kanalos, Founder and the Voice of the Persecuted Team

Tonight on Persecution Watch Prayer Conference Call (Nov. 23, 2019)

 

Dear prayer warriors, ever since Jesus came into my life, I would spend hours reading God’s Word in my precious Bible. God also brought to my attention the testimonies of brothers and sisters, of old and present, through the scriptures, other books and stories that I heard. I loved hearing the testimonies of brothers and sisters who followed and served the Lord. I was captured by their faith and love for Him. They were willing to obey even if it meant giving up their own life, family, friends, everything to follow Jesus. It saddened me deeply to hear of their sufferings and persecution and how many had lost their lives.

But it also moved me to hear of God’s power and unbelievable miracles through them. How He would provide, protect and rescue them, even take them home with Him into eternal Glory. I loved and admired these dear brothers and sisters. I often imagined walking in their footsteps. God used and is using their witness to shape my life as I walked with Him to this day. I also desire to be obedient to my precious Lord Jesus, like them…unto that Day of Glory prepared also for me.

I want to love and serve our Lord with all my heart, mind and soul. But am I truly willing and able to do that even if it means my life? I recall the words of a precious woman who once said,

“My life does not belong to me. I must follow where the Lord leads. I was bought at a high price and must be obedient to the One who purchased me. Isn’t it costly to live like that? Yes, but it is far more costly to disobey.” Her name was Corrie Ten Boom.

I can tell you that God has impressed those words deeply into my heart. They have become my words and my way of life. I can honestly say through Jesus whom straightens me, yes, I am willing.

As I serve Him, I also serve as a Moderator on the Persecution Watch Prayer Conference Call.

I believe what Corrie Ten Boom said:

“We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray.”

This is my encouragement to you all, to believe it!!!

As the Spirit of God leads you tonight, I welcome you to come pray on the call with this joyful and excited attitude.

In Christ love,

Nadia Dybvik, Prayer Moderator

The Persecution Watch and Voice of the Persecuted Team

 

Summary of Sunday’s Event and a Special Invitation for you

(Voice of the Persecuted) Last Sunday, a special event took place and we want to thank each and every one of you who were a part of it. We could never fully express what a joy it is to hear your voice as we speak and pray together in real time. It was a delight to hear one of the first time callers express excitement about praying with others for the persecuted on the call. We’ve included special letters written by the event moderators which they would like you all to read. But first, if you missed the event, we want to explain what it’s all about and share some of what took place. Annually, Persecution Watch and Voice of the Persecuted team up together to host a Call-in Event in recognition of the IDOP, International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. The IDOP is scheduled for two Sundays in November. Those in the west normally observe on the first scheduled Sunday. This year, we chose Nov. 3, 2019 as an opportunity for all to join in a 12-hour conference call and pray united with us for the persecuted.

Why we do it…Scripture tells us to pray for one another and our suffering brothers and sisters ask us to pray for them. It’s always their number one request. Voice of the Persecuted (VOP) has partnered with Persecution Watch on many prayer call events for the persecuted church. What is the partnership between Persecution Watch and Voice of the Persecuted? 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, Founder of Persecution Watch, has 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. The prayer focus of the Persecution Watch mission compliments that of Voice of the Persecuted and has become an integral part of the VOP mission. Blaine Scogin, Founder of Persecution Watch, is also the Prayer Director of Voice of the Persecuted. We are blessed and consider all those who pray on this call, VOP’s Prayer Warrior Team!

Voice of the Persecuted brought a Pakistani brother to share some exciting news with those who joined the prayer call. He and his family fled from an extremely dangerous case of persecution in Pakistan. However, they found themselves caught up in the horrific situation of seeking asylum in Thailand. With a heart of compassion, this young man often risked his own safety to help care for others in the same situation. We had waited until the IDOP Call Event to share this praise report with the Prayer Team who had often prayed on and off the call for him. To protect his identity the Prayer Team knew him as Christian. On Sunday, we were thrilled to reintroduce him using his real name. He would like to continue working with Voice of the Persecuted to advocate and bring a light to the situation of Christians in Pakistan. We feel very blessed to have him as part of The VOP team.

From Nadia Dybik, Prayer Team Moderator-Persecution Watch 

I had been looking forward to being on the IDOP 12-hour Prayer Conference Call Event which took place this past Sunday. When the leaders of Persecution Watch and Voice of the Persecuted asked if I would be willing to moderate on the call. I excepted with great excitement.

The Bible tells us to “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” (Hebrews 13:3) I feel morally obligated to pray for my brothers and sisters who are persecuted for accepting Jesus as their Savior. They know their loved ones may shun and cut-off all communication, even attack them, when they decide to become a Christian. They realize the great risk of persecution yet are still willing to suffer. They understand that to follow and share Jesus with others may even cost their lives. The Lord has revealed himself to these dear ones and in their hearts there’s no turning back. Many go through unimaginable sufferings and persecutions simply because they will not deny Jesus. They ask us to pray for their endurance to overcome whatever trial they face. With all they go through, it amazes me that they also pray for us here in America!

Oh, what a privilege it was for me to be on the prayer conference call. To be obedient to God’s calling to serve Him, to know that we were in His presence as I moderated this call of prayer for the persecuted. Each time one of you joined in to pray with me, I rejoiced! It was so beautiful to hear the many Spirit led prayers lifted to the Lord for our persecuted brothers, sisters and their children. For missions and missionaries, leaders, nations and for each other. United, we praised God and Glorified His name!

It’s always encouraging when we hear from persecuted brothers and sisters who are invited to share on the call. We hear their voice; we ask them questions and we pray together with them. They often tell us that they were able to bear their sufferings because they felt our prayers sustaining them. We are so blessed to stand in the gap for our dear brothers and sisters.

What a joy to hear the good news of those whom we have prayed for are finally free. We prayed many times for our brother Raymond from Pakistan, whom we used to call Christian. I was so happy that I cried when I heard his voice again and to learn he was finally free! A Canadian Church chose to sponsor him with his mother and two brothers. They are finally starting a new life and freely able to worship our Father. May the HE be glorified!

Brother Blaine, Founder of Persecution Watch, often recites, ‘The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much’ found in James 5:16.  We recently learned that he is battling serious health issues and was in the Hospital. One of our many prayers was to have our dear brother back on the call. He not only was able to join but to pray on Sunday’s call. That prayer has been answered! You should have heard the fervent prayer of this faithful servant crying out to Him for the Persecuted Church. It is often through persecution, trials and afflictions that we get even closer to the Lord.

I often think how sad it is for any Believer who hasn’t experienced the Spirit-filled joy and glory of going at the foot of the Cross to pray. I can honestly tell you this, we do not go on the Call and expect our hearts not to be changed! The Lord said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.” (Luke 10:2) You are welcome to join the prayer conference call every Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday! Come faithful servant of the Lord.

In Christ love,

Nadia Dybvik

From Leigh Murphy, Prayer Team Moderator-Persecution Watch 

Greetings to all of you,

Great are you, Lord!  You give life, you are love and you bring light to the darkness.  In the words of Blaine Scogin, the Founder of Persecution Watch and Prayer Director of Voice of the Persecuted, Brother Blaine shared that “God has given us powerful weapons that are not of this world.  We recognize those weapons as the Word of God and Prayer.

Imagine the power of using His Word as we pray.  Through the Holy Spirit, we can pray powerful prayers to uphold our persecuted family!  And, indeed this is truly what took place on Sunday’s 12-hour prayer call for the persecuted which was sponsored by Persecution Watch and Voice of the Persecuted with its Founder and Advocate, Lois Kanalos.  People from all over the world assembled through the phone lines to pray together in one accord for our Brothers and Sisters who are suffering because of their faith in Jesus Christ.  It was a powerful time of prayer and testimonies of God’s unfailing love and faithfulness!

I am deeply grateful and humbled to have had the chance to monitor a couple of those hours. Thank you to Lois and Blaine for trusting me with such a privilege!   May I encourage those of you who came on the call and those of you who continue to stand in the gap for the persecuted to look ahead to the coming new year- 2020 and consider igniting a fire within your church and community to take up the call and pray for the persecuted.  Ephesians 5:13-14 reminds us  “But everything exposed by the light becomes visible–and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.  This is why it is said:  “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you!”.

Today more than ever there is opportunity to expose the deeds of darkness and shine light on those who are persecuted for Christ’s sake.  Wouldn’t it be great if the numbers of prayer warriors increased so greatly in this upcoming year that our next IDOP call would simply overwhelm the phone lines!

To my Brothers and Sisters around the globe who suffer because of their faith in Jesus Christ, may I encourage you.  You are not forgotten.  We continue to pray for you and stand with you daily.  May you take comfort that He who began a good work in you, carry it on to completion until the day of Christ. As you trust in Him and turn your eyes upon Him and look full in His wonderful face, may the things of earth grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace!

To God be the glory!

In His service, Sister Leigh

We would also like to thank the moderators and prayer warriors for their love, compassion and devotion to pray for the Lord’s suffering church. You are such a blessing to more than you know. All for His glory, forever and ever!

We invite you to call in and join the Prayer Team on the Prayer Conference Call.

On occasion, persecuted brothers and sisters are invited on the call to share the trials they’re 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.
