Praising God As We Pray For The Persecuted

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

Hallelujah!!!  Let us rejoice that our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Psalm 95:1-2  “Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the God of our salvation; Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.”

  • Help Your people to be able to praise you and thank you 

Psalm 95:3  “For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.”

  • Help Your people to know and remember that God is sovereign and controls all things; that all things work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose; that His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. 
  • Pray these promises would bring supernatural peace in this troubled and wicked world.  He has given us His peace, not as the world gives.

2 Corinthians 1:20

“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “yes” in Christ.  And so through

Him the “Amen” is spoken through us to the glory of God.”

  • Thank you for giving us divine promises which are “yes” and “amen” in Messiah.  
  • Pray this would encourage the church and bring much hope and strength. 
  • Pray believers would have access to God’s Word.

Acts 4:19-20 “But Peter and John replied: ‘judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God.  For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.'”

  • Pray all men would fear God and not men; not be a stumbling block for salvation.
  • Pray for boldness in witnessing.

Acts 26:18  “I am sending you to open their eyes, and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.”

  • Pray for salvation for the lost; pray for the harvest.

Ezekiel 13:22  “Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives.”

John 17:17  “Sanctify them by the truth; Your Word is truth.”

  • Pray against a spirit of witchcraft, manipulation, blended religion, ungodly compromise.
  • Pray church would not be deceived.

Psalm 94:1  “O LORD, the God who avenges, O God who avenges, shine forth.”

  • Pray church would be able to forgive and allow God to avenge them; trust God to do it.
  • Pray God would speedily avenge His people.

Psalm 64:1  “Hear me, O God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy.”

Interlinear translation:  “Guard my life from terror of the enemy.”

  • Pray for supernatural, angelic protection

Psalm 82:3-4  “Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed; rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

  • Pray for the fatherless and the widows; deliver them from the wicked

Malachi 4:2  “But for you who revere my Name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in his wings.  And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.”

  • Pray for healing:  pray for the gift of healing; pray for healing for those beaten and for those denied medical care; pray it will be seen as evidence of God’s glory and greatness.

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.

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)

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.
