We will continue remember our Brothers and sisters in India. 

We will also Pray for: 

Leah Sharibu and Alice that they will be set free from Boko Haram captivity.

  • Leah Sharibu was kidnapped along with 109 other students on February 19, 2018 when Boko Haram attacked a boarding school in the city of Dapchi, Maiduguri Diocese, in north-eastern Nigeria. A month later, some of the girls died in captivity and all the others were released, except Leah. She was the only Christian in the group.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah was kidnapped during the Rann attack on March 1, 2018. She was a nurse working with Unicef and is a mother of two.

Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison, for his family, the children, and the church in China. 

  • On December 28 the police raided the Early Rain Church and arrested Pastor Wang Yi, his wife Jiang Rong, and ten elders of the well-known 750-member church for holding “illegal” services. Some 100 believers were detained, questioned, and later released. Pastor Wang’s wife was also released. Pastor Wang remained in detention.

Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime seeking asylum.

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, recently reduced from ten years. Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani converted to Christianity at the age of 19 and leads a 400-member house church in Rasht, Iran. Since 2006, Iranian authorities have consistently harassed and detained Pastor Nadarkhani and his family. In 2010, the authorities sentenced him to death for apostasy before acquitting him in 2012. Pastor Nadarkhani was tried again in 2017 on false charges of “acting against national security” and promoting “Zionist Christianity,” for which he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. By July 2018, plainclothes agents raided Pastor Nadarkhani’s home to execute the sentence, beating and apprehending him and using a taser gun on one of his sons. He is now incarcerated at the notorious Evin prison near Tehran.

The harvest 

  • “And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2

The Lord’s servant,

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in China

5/06/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, May 06 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch. 

China: Population 1.4 billion, Christians 97.2 million [6.8%]

Report reveals that between January and December 2020, the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) systemic harassment of Christians, other religious practitioners, and activists has steadily increased and intensified. Under President Xi Jinping’s orders, Chinese officials executed the “Five-Year Plan for the Sinicization of Christianity” which is now in its third year Churches closed and demolished. House churches raided. Pastors handcuffed mid-service. Christians arrested, interrogated and imprisoned. Crosses removed from church buildings.

Also, during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, the CCP used it as an excuse to shut down all places of worship and to ban any religious gathering or activity throughout mainland China. Both state-run and house churches suffered more harassment including the pillaging of properties and total demolition of church buildings. Anyone who dares challenge the authorities end up suffering ugly consequences.

Religious persecution in China intensified in 2020, with thousands of Christians affected by church closures and other human rights abuses, according to a new report from ChinaAid. Overall, CCP authorities persecuted 100% of house churches, the study found, with police summoning and questioning every church’s main leader. 

Under the direction of Chinese President Xi Jinping, CCP officials also worked to more fully control “religion,” ordering Christians in both official, state-run churches as well as in house churches to fly the Chinese flag, and sing patriotic songs in services. Authorities also directed ministers and priests to “Sinicize” sermons, or alter them to conform to CCP ideology. According to the report released this week, CCP authorities also invaded Christians’ homes, raided family gatherings, and interfered with parenting decisions. In numerous instances, authorities sued Christians for homeschooling their children or sending them to church-run schools.

Prayer Points

  • Pray to the Lord that the Holy Spirit will change attitudes among government officials, especially for President Xi, that he will soften towards Christians and other religious minorities.
  • Ask the Lord to open the eyes of those in authority to the unequalled power and beauty of the gospel.
  • Please pray for the Lord to encourage the body of Christ worldwide to support our brothers and sisters in China through prayer.
  • Pray for Bibles “covert” deliveries on SDHC cards, micro SDHC cards, USB flash drives as well as paper to provid Bibles for spiritual strength amid intense persecution.
  • Pray to the Lord for using NGOs and Believers toprovide direct aid to Chinese Christians facing increasing opposition from government authorities.
  • Ask the Lord to give church leaders wisdom, discernment and guidance as they lead congregations in light of increased restrictions and surveillance.
  • Lift up in prayer all who have left their former religion to follow Jesus. Pray that they will be protected from harm, strengthened in their faith and empowered in their witness.
  • Please pray especially for the Uyghurs who came to faith from their Muslim believes. [The Uyghur Muslims are treated as terrorists in China and professing the Christian faith adds to their problems with the government.
  • Pray against the camera surveillance system that it will choke on data overload and experience constant system breakdown.
  • Pray for the Christians who are accused of illegal gathering, illegal preaching and spreading harmful books as they may not have to go to prison.
  • Pray for the elders who worship on-line and at home and are persecuted by the authorities by cutting of water, electricity, natural gas and internet service and ordering their landlord to evict them.
  • Pray to The Lord to hold His hand of protection over the Christians who suffer in overcrowded prison cells. [50 to 60 people in a 500 square feet cell.
  • Pray against the governments devious designs and action to falsify the Word.                        

[Andy will read John 8,7-11 ESV and John 8,7-11 in the Chinese authorized version]

  • Pray to the Lord that He will mightily continue to grow His church in China in spite of restrictions and persecution.

Again, we want 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 pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped and now waiting for a visa 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, recently reduced from ten years.

Persecution Watch: A Biblical Understanding of why Christians are Persecuted

5/04/2021 Voice of the Persecuted and Persecution Watch invite you to join us on Tuesday, May 4 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted Church.

Dear Prayer Warriors, we know that the true followers of Jesus will go through persecution. For this reason, our Father is calling us to pray for our precious Brothers and Sisters.

Paul’s Charge to Timothy

“10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:10-17

Those who follow Jesus will face persecution for their faith. Jesus warns His followers about the difficulties they will face. 

  • “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” 2 Timothy 3:12
  • “Then He said to them all; “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23
  • “10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.” Matthew 5:10-11
  • “12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5:12
  • ” But I tell you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you.” Matthew 5:44 
  • “8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

The present Suffering and Future Glory.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18

“Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local council and be flogged in the synagogues.” Matthew 10:17 

“You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles..” Matthew 10:18

“And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” Matthew 10:22 

“When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.” Matthew 10:23

Prayer Points

  • Let us pray for strength, courage and endurance.
  • That believers will be ‘Christ-centered and focused on our Lord, not swayed by trials or the world.
  • That they will not stumble due to the worldly opinions of them and our faith in Christ.
  • That lukewarm Christians would develop a hunger for God’s Word in the Bible and come to a knowledge of the Truth through the Holy Spirit.
  • That they will trust God and remain joyful in all situations knowing God’s promises will be fulfilled.
  • That their love and joy in Christ will be a light in the darkness for all to see.

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!

NOTE: Persecution Watch has a new email address for the prayer team and those who would like to receive urgent prayer requests, weekly call prayer points and notification of special prayer events and special guest speakers.

Please fill out the form below to be included in our new distribution list to receive this important information. We are grateful for your prayers and to the Lord for guiding us as we continue the Persecution Watch prayer call mission.

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in the Maldives

4/29/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, April 29, 2021 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church.

Maldives: Population 459.000, Christians: a few thousands

The Maldives is viewed by many as a luxury holiday destination, but behind the beauty of this island paradise lies a strict Islamic regime. This chain of nearly 1,200 islands has one of the highest population densities worldwide, especially on its main island, Malé. The close-knit, homogeneous communities keep a close watch on their members for any sign of deviation—which naturally includes religious choice. All politicians relentlessly claim that they are keeping the Maldives 100 percent Muslim, effectively leaving no space for any alternative.

Conversion to Christianity can easily result in being reported to Muslim leaders or authorities. Expatriate Christians, most of them working in the tourist sector and coming from India and Sri Lanka, are also closely watched, making Christian fellowship very difficult. The Maldives’ place on the World Watch List remains virtually unchanged, demonstrating that very little has altered in the past year. The new government, inaugurated in November 2018, clearly shows no signs of hesitation in its determination to keep the islands entirely free from religious influence that is not Islamic.

Persecution mainly takes place away from the eyes of international tourists the country’s economy depends on. A church life in the true meaning of the word is virtually impossible. Converts go to great lengths not to be discovered by their families and communities. They would not only face strong opposition and pressure to return to Islam but could even lose their citizenship.

  • Pray that attitudes among government officials, especially President Solih, will soften towards Christians and other religious minorities.
  • Pray against the strongholds of the forces of darkness – pride, fear, duplicity, sensuality, occult practices.
  • Pray for the Lord to provide opportunities for believers to gather safely.
  • Pray that God will use the Bible to powerfully strengthen, encourage and nurture the lives of believers.
  • Pray for the Christians among expatriate migrant workers, that they can be good witnesses of the hope they have in Christ.
  • Pray for Bible translations into Dhivehi, the official language and also their heart language. A few years ago, only the Gospel of Luke and Acts were available in Dhivehi.
  • Pray for covert delivery of Bibles and discipleship materials.
  • Pray that peace will reign in the hearts of Maldivian Christians in their difficult and uncertain times.
  • Pray for protection for Maldivian Christians from a Muslim background, and ask that they would be able to withstand opposition from their families and communities.
  • Pray that the media will focus their attention on the oppressive Maldivian government.  
  •  Pray that the media attention on the Maldives will it make politically incorrect for the rich, the pleasure seekers to vacation there.
  •   Pray that Christians can love and forgive their persecutors.
  • Pray for the Lord to free the captives and bring the church above ground.

Again, we want 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 pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped and now waiting for a visa 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, recently reduced from ten years.

Persecution Watch: Pray for Believers in Saudi Arabia

4/22/2021 You are invited to join us on Thursday, April 22, 2021 in a prayer call for the persecuted church.

Saudi Arabia: Population 34.7 million, Christians: 1.2 (3.5)

Western oil interests and a quest for Middle Eastern “stability” mean Saudi Arabia is welcomed as an ally of the so-called Christian West – a profound contradiction that ignores the country’s treatment of Christians and involvement in jihadist violence around the globe. The largely unquestioning support of Western governments for Saudi Arabia is an insult to Christ’s followers there who live in the shadow of death.

In recent years, Saudi Arabia has provided funding for Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq and is widely thought to have directly aided Islamic State. In Yemen, it has helped Sunni government troops fighting Iranian-backed Shia Houthi forces in a civil war that has become the latest expression of Sunni Saudi Arabia’s proxy fight for dominance in the Middle East

The majority of Christians in Saudi Arabia are expatriates. Most come from low/middle income countries in Asia and Africa, but there are also some from the Western world. Besides being exploited and poorly paid, Asian and African workers are regularly exposed to verbal and physical abuse because of their ethnicity and low status, but their Christian faith can also play a role in this.

Expatriate Christians are severely restricted in sharing their Christian faith with Muslims and in gathering for worship, which entails the risk of detention and deportation. Consequently, expatriates tend to keep silent about their faith.

The few Saudi Christians from a Muslim background face even more pressure, especially from their families. Expatriate Muslims converting to the Christian faith also face strong persecution, likely similar to the levels they would have experienced in their home country. Whether Saudi or otherwise, most converts are forced to practice their faith in secrecy. Nevertheless, the small number of Saudi Christians has been slowly increasing, and they are becoming bolder, sharing their faith with others on the internet and via Christian satellite TV channels. Such public action has led to serious repercussions from Saudi families and authorities.

 While there is a slight reduction in reports of violence and family life opposition, there have been marginal increases in pressure elsewhere (that is, pressure in community, national and church life). 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.

Open Doors supports the body of Christ on the Arabian Peninsula through organizing prayer, distributing Scripture resources and training believers and pastors.

Prayer Points

  • Pray that King Salman will relax the restrictions against suppressing Christians worship.
  • Pray against the ban of Christian literature.
  • Pray for the day where all Christians can openly practice their faith.
  • Pray that Christians meeting in homes will be protected and slip through the surveillance network.
  • Pray that the Lord will continue to use the Internet to strengthen and unite believers, and grow the Saudi church
  • Pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to both Christians and non-Christians in dreams and visions.
  • Pray for the protection of all Christians in Saudi Arabia, and for them to be given continued wisdom and discernment as they seek to follow and share Jesus.

·       Pray that peace will reign in the hearts of Christians  as they labor in during difficult and uncertain times.

  • Pray for protection for Saudi Christians from a Muslim background, and ask that they would be able to withstand opposition from their families and communities.
  • Pray against exploitation and verbal abuse for Christians from low/middle income countries in Asia and Africa.
  • Pray that NGOs will continue to provide covert support in delivering Christian Materials and training Christian leaders and believers.     

·       Pray that Christians can love and forgive their persecutors.

·       Pray for the Lord to bind the forces of darkness and for a amazing growth of the Christian population.

Again, we want 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 pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped and now waiting for a visa 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, recently reduced from ten years.
