A Thanksgiving Message

(Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, every day is a day to be thankful for. All praise to the Great I Am, the King of all Kings. our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our Merciful and loving Father.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I want you to know that I am so thankful for all of you, for the love you have for the Persecuted Church and for the Harvest. You have all been so faithful in serving united in the Spirit. I’ve been so blessed to pray with all of you.

We have grown united in our obedience to the call that the Lord has given to us. I’m so encouraged during our powerful prayer time together. I love you all so dearly and I am so grateful for you.

Thank you, my dear ones. God bless you all.

Tonight, we will not be hosting a prayer conference call. I encourage you to continue to keep our dear persecuted brothers and sisters in your heart that they may sense your prayers and love in the Spirit!

All People Exhorted to Praise God.

A Psalm for Thanksgiving.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with jubilation;

Come before Him with rejoicing. Know that the Lord Himself is God;

It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and

the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving,

And His courtyards with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.

For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting

And His faithfulness is to all generations. Psalm 100:1-5

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day

In the love of Christ,

Nadia Dybvik Prayer Leader of Persecution Watch (PW)

A message from Voice of the Persecuted 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, your prayers have an impact on persecuted Christians who know you are praying for them. They are filled with joy in the realization that they are remembered. Encouraged by your love and concern as you walk with them through your prayers, the Lord is using you to help boost their faith. These brothers and sisters thank God and pray for you as well.

I too would like to thank you for your dedication, for loving them as your family in Christ Jesus and for being a voice on their behalf.

Father God, I thank you for these precious saints that you have gathered to pray and sound the trumpet for those suffering for their faith in Christ. Please bless each member with, peace, love, joy, patience, kindness, self-control, discernment through the Holy Spirit and an abundance of your good gifts.

Lord suit them up in your armor. The belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, fit their feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace, (the ‘Good News of salvation’ so that they can have supernatural peace), a shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is your word, Father.

Protect these dear ones and their families from the flaming arrows of the enemy and give them strength to run their race. In the name of Jesus, may You be glorified!

God bless you all and may every day be a day of Thanksgiving.

Persecution Watch: Separating the Sheep from the Goats

11/24/2020 (Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, Matthew 25:31-46 shows us how Jesus the Shepherd will separate the sheep from the goats. What a glorious day that will be!

The question is who are the sheep and who are the goats?

Who are the blessed ones, who are the ones that will inherit the Kingdom?

It is written

31 “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 And all the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, just as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, but the goats on the left.

 

34 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You as a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.’

 

41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you accursed people, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44 Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or as a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not [a]take care of You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for Me, either.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Inspired by my pastor, I share the above with you. I believe that when we pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters, the King will answer saying, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.’

Please Join us tonight in prayers for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Nigeria

Christian Leaders Urge Prayer for Nigeria’s Forgotten Victims

Tonight, we will continue to pray for:

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

On Jul 08, 2020 · 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.

 

~   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.

 

~   For Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime.

 

~   For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues. He 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.

 

~   For the harvest

“2 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

Islamic Extremists Behead 50 People in Brutal Attack on Villages in Mozambique

(CBN) ISIS militants reportedly have murdered 50 people in a gruesome attack on several villages in the African coastal nation of Mozambique.

The victims were herded onto a soccer field in a northern village and then beheaded, according to eyewitness accounts reported by the state-owned Mozambique News Agency.

Local police also said scores of women and children were abducted in the attack and several homes were burned. Any villagers who tried to flee were captured and brutally murdered. The murders continued for almost three days.

“They burnt the houses then went after the population who had fled to the woods and started with their macabre actions,” Bernardino Rafael, the head of Mozambique’s police, told a press conference, according to The Times of London.

The militants shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) while firing their weapons and setting homes on fire, according to media reports.

Fighting erupted in the Cabo Delgado province of the country in 2017 after an armed group with ties to ISIS began carrying out deadly attacks there.

The unrest has led to the deaths of more than 2,000 people and displaced more than 430,000 in the mainly Muslim province, according to the BBC.

Even though the area is rich in energy products, the people who live there have seen little of the reported $60 billion made from the province’s natural gas reserves. The extremists have used the ever-present poverty and unemployment to recruit young people in their quest to establish Islamic rule or a caliphate over the area.

Mozambique’s government has asked for help from other nations in trying to put down the revolt. The government says its military needs specialized training before confronting the militants, the BBC reported.

But human rights groups also warn that government security forces are also to blame for torture and killings while trying to restrain the militants’ activities in the province.

Dear Prayer Warriors, we are asking for you to join in sober, vigilant prayer on the conference call with us. Our persecuted brothers and sisters are desperate for our prayers.

Consider this,

7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:7-10

We will lifting up the nation of Mozambique

Pray for Bob Fu

Dear Friends,

What do you think about when you hear about China? A pandemic? Trade wars? Political corruption?

When I think of China, I think of a vibrant and growing church that often faces severe persecution for their faith. I think of Christians who consider prison a “seminary of suffering.” I also think of my friend, Bob Fu, whom I have written about over the past few weeks.
Bob was a student leader during the Tiananmen Square Massacre. He and his wife were imprisoned for their faith, and eventually made their way to America where Bob started China Aid in support of religious freedoms in China.
Recently, a Chinese billionaire (living in New York City) made an “elimination list,” in which he named over 30 Chinese human right activists living in the USA, and stated that they should be killed. Bob Fu is at the top of his list.
Government authorities had to evacuate Bob, his wife Heidi, and their two daughters to a safe house as reports of a planned bombing at his house had surfaced. Even now, Bob and his family remain in an undisclosed location, and are unable to return to their home or their ministry office.
I spoke with Bob this week, and his spirits are high. He is no stranger to persecution. The death threats are real, and his family is under considerable stress. Heidi’s mother is so upset over her daughter’s safety that she has been hospitalized.
When I first wrote about this situation, I received many emails from our friends and supporters committing to pray for Bo Fu and his family. I also received emails questioning the motives of the Chinese billionaire calling for Bob’s death. His English name is Miles Kwok, and he is a self-proclaimed anti-communist activist. However, Kwok is actively using his money and influence to try to kill Bob and leading Chinese human rights activists.
“Bob needs our prayers and our support. The enemy is trying to silence one of the leading activists supporting our persecuted brothers and sisters in China.”
“There is no question,” Bob shared with me “Miles Kwok is working with the Chinese Communist government. This is the way the deception works. He accuses me of being a fake pastor and a Chinese spy, and says he is against communism. Only, the opposite is true.”

Bob needs our prayers and our support. The enemy is trying to silence one of the leading activists supporting our persecuted brothers and sisters in China. Recently, an estimated 200 pastors and church leaders gathered in Midland, TX (Bob’s hometown) to rally in support of Bob and his family.

Bob Fu is a close friend of my family, and a partner with RevelationMedia. He has helped us translate and distribute our content to China. Please remember him, his family, and his ministry in your prayers.

With all of the negative news surrounding China, it is easy to forget the plight of our brothers and sisters there. I encourage you not to let the enemy turn our attention away from China and its persecuted Christians. Together with them, we are just pilgrims in this land on our way to eternity with our King!

Persecution Watch: Overcoming discouragement

 

11/7/2020 (Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, we see turmoil all around the world through war, tribulation, Covid-19, rebellion against God our Creator and rejection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is easy to be discouraged and worried.

My dear brothers and sisters, I encourage you to remember that:

17 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.” Deuteronomy 10:17

Therefore, we can say in Faith:

“6 You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.” Nehemiah 9:6 

Because we know that

“19 God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?” Numbers 23:19 

Dear Saints, for this reason, I encourage you to:

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? 32 Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. 33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Do not forget dear ones, 

“4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

For this reason

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all peopleto be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles.

Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” 1 Timothy 2:1-8

My dear brothers and sisters, I encourage you in confidence with His Word

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10-17

Keep in mind what our Father commanded us to:

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

The Apostle Paul’s encouragement and also the testimonies of our persecuted Brothers and Sisters is to press towards the Goal:

12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Following Paul’s Example

15 All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.

17 Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. 18 For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.” Philippians 3:12-21

Let us continue our race with courage and the promises He has given to us!!!

Join us on the prayer call and don’t miss this opportunity to pray together. Our prayers can accomplish much for our persecuted family.  We are reminded in James 5:16, The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

We will also continue to pray for:

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

On Jul 08, 2020 · 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.

  • Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison, for his family, the children, and the church in China
  • For Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime.
  • For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues
  • The Global Harvest for the Kingdom of God

Serving Jesus,

Nadia Dybvik, Persecution Watch Prayer Call Leader

Reminder: 2nd IDOP Prayer Conference Call on Sunday, Nov. 8th – Join us!

(Voice of the Persecuted) So many in the world do not have the freedom to unite together openly in prayer. Their prayers are often said in secret or a barely audible whisper. Do you and your church remember to pray for Christians, our family in the Body of Christ, in other countries? In the hearts and lives of our persecuted brothers and sisters, our prayers do make a difference.

“Brothers and Sisters, in this final hour of redemptive history, we see the forces of Satan marshaling against the followers of Jesus. Persecution continues to increase in a frequency which has not been seen previously in history. Satan has declared an all out war on the followers of Jesus and if possible seeks to destroy them.
But God has given to 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.
God has placed us in the freedom of America. We are able to cry out for those who cannot cry out for themselves. The persecuted in the shadow of the cross pray of course, but they also have a heartfelt plea, Please pray that we will ‘endure’ the persecutions and that God will deliver us ‘through’ the persecutions.” — Blaine Scogin, Founder of Persecution Watch

Please join us as we lift up prayer on behalf of those who carry the cross of Christ. Join us on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020 on our 2nd conference call for the IDOP2020. If you are not able to join our prayer conference call please do remember the persecuted in your prayers. For everyday should be an International Day of Prayer (IDOP) for our persecuted brethren.

Persecution Watch: Join us as we Pray for the nation of Haiti

11/5/2020 (Voice of the Persecuted) Haiti:  Population: 11.7 million, Christian 9.6 million

When Columbus landed in the island of Hispaniola on December 6, 1492, he found a kingdom ruled by a cacique, or Taino Indian chief. … When Haitians took their independence in 1804, through a slave revolt, they changed their colonial name from Saint Domingue (the name given by the French) to its Taino name of Haiti.

Haiti was made to pay for its freedom with steep reparations to France and diplomatic isolation, crippling the nation in its early years. Since that time the nation has a troubled history of bloodshed and dictatorships. Deposing the Duvaliers in 1986 ended a particularly brutal dictatorship followed by many coups and military rule. The US intervene in1994 to instill stability.

The 2010 earthquake devasted the little economy and infrastructure. Income per person less than $2 a day and major sources of income are remittances from expatriate Haitians and international relief.  Enormous corruption, crime, a under strength police force often in the pockets of drug lords. Also 15% of the elite control 90% of all resources.

While there is religious freedom from the state, Haiti is a huge spiritual battle ground.  Haitians identify themselves as Christians. However, the greatest threat or challenge is the widespread practice of Voodoo which is also practiced by many churchgoers. On a positive note: the evangelical churches are growing steadily.

 

  • Pray for Christians, godly leaders, to be elected to government offices to look for the good for the nation and address the massive corruption problems.

 

  • Pray to the Lord will break the power of the Voodoo churches that are distorting and polluting the message of Christ.

 

  • Pray that the many Haitians who call themselves Christian will experience the transforming power of a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and overcome their practice of voodooism.

 

  • Pray for the Lord to for laborers to go out to the rural areas where there is a lack of teaching that has reduced the influence of the church.

 

  • Pray for more pastoral and leadership training. That NGOs will provide much needed support to develop pastors and elders who will teach the Bible.

 

  • Pray for unity of the Bible teaching churches as prosperity, liberation and other imported theologies confuse and divide Christians.

 

  • Pray for the Restaveks about 300,000 in numbers, who are child slaves which are easily bought and sold. Pray that the Lord will raise up people and organizations to bring love and relive to the Restaveks.

 

  • Pray for more Creole language Bibles which are relatively expensive and in short supply as well as more discipleship material in Creole.

 

  • Pray for more Christian broadcast messages in Creole by TWR and others. Also pray for more messages in Creole on the internet.

 

  • Pray to the Lord for more Bible teaching mission organizations to come to Haiti and to give them wisdom and discernment how to plant churches to be patored by indigenous pastors.

 

  • Pray that Christians would have the courage and boldness to share their faith and not be discouraged by voodooism.

 

  • Pray that the Lord will continue to grow HIS church.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses for the Lord and pray for

  • Leah Sharibu and Alice, prisoners of Boko Haram, pray that they will be set free
  • Pray pastor Wang Yi to be released from Prison
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert persecuted by the Iranian government.

You are invited to join us on Thursday, November 5th in a prayer call for the persecuted church.

Andy, Persecution Watch, Prayer Call Moderator

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!

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.

Note to Voice of the Persecuted (VOP) readers: The Persecution Watch prayer team is also the prayer team of Voice of the Persecuted. SIGN UP today.

Persecution Watch: When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted…

11/3/20 (Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, the founder of Persecution, Blaine Scogin, in the past had shared,

For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like those condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to human beings. 10 We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored! 11 To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless. 12 We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; 13 when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment. 1 Corinthians 4:9-13 (Read full chapter)

Our persecuted family lives constantly under death as they follow Jesus. Let us remember them this day. Let us keep our persecuted brothers and sisters in our prayers.  Let us pray that they will be delivered through their persecutions. Let us pray that they stand firm in the grace of Jesus to be faithful witnesses of him.  Let us keep our persecuted family in our prayers this day.

Lord Jesus your precious bride is ever in danger because they serve you and will not renounce you. Strengthen your precious bride this day. Bring to our mind those who suffer for you in parts of the world that we may never see.  Our persecuted family ask that we pray for them. That’s their simple request. Let us be those who hear their heart cry and lift them up in prayer. For I ask this in your blessed name.  Amen.

Bro Blaine

We will also continue to pray for:

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

On Jul 08, 2020 · 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.

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

~   For Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime.

~   For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues

~   The Global Harvest for the Kingdom of God

In Christ Love,

Nadia & Merlaine, Persecution Watch Prayer Moderators
