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).

Persecution Watch: Praying the Word Over the Persecuted

2/23/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, you are invited to join us Tuesday, February 23 in a prayer conference call for the Persecuted Church. 

I love to share from time to time an invitation from our dear, Persecution Watch founder, Blaine Scogin. 

Praying the Word Over the Persecuted 

“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10

Can our persecuted family have a rich and satisfying life in Jesus in the midst of their persecutions? Their testimonies bear witness that this is possible. But how?

Only by clinging to Jesus as the source of their life. By realizing that Jesus can give them that rich and satisfying life. 

Corrie Ten Boom has said that you never know that Jesus is all you need until you discover that Jesus is all you have. This is certainly true of our persecuted family. This can even be true of us in the midst of our tribulations.  Even in the midst of pain and sorrow, Jesus can bring a rich and satisfying life. Where Satan steals, kills, and destroys. Jesus speaks a rich and satisfying life. Even in the midst of tribulation and pain.

We will continue to pray for:

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

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

Alice, was kidnapped during the Rann attack on March 1, 2018. She was a nurse working with Unicef, and is a mother of two.

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

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.

  • 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

In the love of Christ,

Nadia Dybvik, Persecution Watch Prayer Conference Call Leader

Praying through the Scriptures for the Persecuted – Week 3

 

2/20/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday, February 20, 2021 in a prayer conference call for the Persecuted Church. Click the following links to read or review Week 1 and Week 2.

 7. Comfort for oppressed

Psalm 90:15-17  (God’s comfort)

15 Make us glad according to the days You have afflicted us,
And the years we have seen evil.
16 Let Your work appear to Your servants
And Your majesty to their children.
17 May the kindness of the Lord our God be upon us;
And confirm for us the work of our hands;
Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

 8. Salvation for a lost and wicked world

Psalm 52:1-5

Futility of Boastful Wickedness.

For the music director. A Maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul and said to him, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”

Why do you boast in evil, you mighty man?
The faithfulness of God endures all day long.
Your tongue devises destruction,
Like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.
You love evil more than good,
Lies more than speaking what is right. Selah
You love all words that devour,
You deceitful tongue.

But God will break you down forever;
He will snatch you up and tear you away from your tent,
And uproot you from the land of the living. Selah

For ignorance:

2 Cor. 4:4

in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they will not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Isaiah 1:16-18

16 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.
Stop doing evil,
17 Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Rebuke the oppressor,
Obtain justice for the orphan,
Plead for the widow’s case.

 9. God is in Control

Psalm 93

The Majesty of the Lord.

The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The Lord has clothed and encircled Himself with strength.
Indeed, the world is firmly established; it will not be moved.
Your throne is established from of old;
You are from eternity.

The floods have lifted up, Lord,
The floods have lifted up their voice,
The floods lift up their pounding waves.
More than the sounds of many waters,
Than the mighty breakers of the sea,
The Lord on high is mighty.
Your testimonies are fully confirmed;
Holiness is pleasing to Your house,
Lord, forevermore.

We will also continue to pray for,

Leah Sharibu and Alice – Nigeria

Pastor Wang Yi – China

Pastor Youcef Nadarkani- Iran

Anita – Iran

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in Eritrea

2/18/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) Eritrea: Population 5,3illion, Christians: 2,5 million

Christians from non-traditional denominations face the harshest persecution in Eritrea, both from the government and from the Eritrean Orthodox Church (EOC). The EOC is the only Christian denomination recognized by the government, and it is tightly controlled by those in power.

Government security forces monitor phone calls, scrutinize activity, and conduct countless raids which target Christians, seize Christian materials and damage house churches. Christians can be arrested and imprisoned without trial. Many Christians are held in inhumane prisons because of their faith, and their loved ones often do not know where they are or even if they are still alive. In June 2020, the UN reported there was no meaningful progress to address human rights violations in Eritrea.

Non-EOC Christians and Christians from a Muslim background face extreme opposition from their families and communities and from the state, often being denied crucial social services and other resources.

Evangelical churches must meet secretly. The government actively seeks to infiltrate these underground churches and imprison their leaders. About 600 believers are known to remain in prison, including several top leaders. Imprisoned Christians are not given a trial or allowed to see their families, many of whom do not know where their loved ones are imprisoned or even if they are still alive. Christians simply disappear and are assumed to be in government prisons. The conditions inside these “prisons” are some of the harshest in the world. Christian prisoners are provided meager rations and held in shipping containers in extreme desert conditions for years.

Bibles are available, but the government tracks each Bible sold. Christian literature is highly regulated, and most believers who want Bibles must smuggle them in. For this reason, many believers must access Scripture by digital means.

 

  • Pray for President Isaias Afwerki that he will have an encounter with the Living God and that he will be convicted and stop Christian persecution.

 

  • Pray that believers’ faith would grow, that their love would increase, and that their faith would be steadfast in persecution and affliction.

 

  • Pray Eritrean Christians and church leaders would have wisdom and opportunities to engage their government on the topic of religious freedom.

 

  • Pray for those suffering terrible conditions in prison, held because of their faith, and for the Christian women and children whose husbands and fathers are in prison.

 

  • Pray, ask the Lord will show grace and comfort to the families who do not know of the whereabouts of their imprisoned loved ones and provide for their spiritual and physical needs.

 

  • Pray that the NGOs will have wisdom in how to empower believers, supporting them in all their needs.

 

  • Pray that the Pastors will encourage their saints.

 

  • Pray to the Lord that believers will continue testify and share the gospel in very difficult circumstances.

 

  • Pray for easy access to the internet and that both Believers and Muslims will see messages that encourage and or convict them.

 

  • Pray the Lord will enable Christians to forgive their persecutors.

 

  • Pray to the Lord that His hand of protection is over His Eritrean Church and that He will bind the forces of darkness and grow HIS CHURCH.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

  • Leah Sharibu and Alice, prisoners of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for their release
  • Pray pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray Pray for Anita, a Christian convert persecuted for her faith in Iran.
  • 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: Praying for Believers Under Intense Pressure

2/16/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us, today, on a prayer conference call for the Persecuted Church.

Dear Prayer Warriors, we have an urgent prayer request to pray for a Christian man and a Christian convert, in a restricted nation, who are suffering extreme abuse and intense pressure under the hands of Islamists. Let us pray for them and other persecuted Christians who face these same challenges in many nations across the globe.

We will also remember Leah Sharibu who is being held captive by the Boko Haram terrorists’ group. On February 19, 2018, Boko Haram insurgents abducted over 100 schoolgirls from a school in Dapchi, Northern Nigeria. Leah was only 15 years old at the time, but she clung to Christ in the Boko Haram terrorist camp.

The militants released 104 of the schoolgirls on March 22, 2018, except for Leah. She was the only Christian in the group. Boko Haram members gave Leah an option to gain her freedom, renounce her Christian faith and become a Muslim. However, she refused to deny her faith in Jesus Christ and Leah is still being held captive by the Boko Haram. It will be three years on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.

Let us also remember to pray for her family who are suffering in her absence with no straight answers from the Nigerian government.

Dear brothers and sisters, let us always remember, encourage, and pray for the persecuted.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly every nation on Earth. Unprecedented measures have been taken to try and contain the spread. Travel restrictions, border closures, and quarantines changed normal life for most people in the world. Media coverage of the virus fueled worldwide uncertainty and rampant fear. This is a truly unique time in world history.

We grieve for those who have lost their lives or loved ones. We grieve the physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of this pandemic. We are grateful for those working tirelessly to care for the sick.

But it is important that we stop to remember these Biblical truths:

  1. God reigns OVER it. If the wind and sea obey Him, so does this virus (Matthew 8:27).
  2. He is IN THE MIDST of it. He’s our ever-present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1).
  3. He wants to do something THROUGH it. He has good purposes in ALL things (Romans 8:28).
  4. He can bring eternal hope OUT OF it. Millions are being forced to face their mortality. It is urgent that each and every one of them hears and knows the Hope of the Gospel!

So, let us lift our eyes from the headlines of global strife and fix them on Jesus.

Let’s pray – because no quarantine or government will ever stop God’s power and reach.

Let’s share the Hope of the Gospel with those around us.

May this and other worldwide crises bring unprecedented numbers to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, their Savior!

We will continue to pray for:

  • Alice, who is also a captive of Boko Haram, to be set free from Boko Haram captivity. 

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.

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.

  • 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

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.

Praying through the Scriptures for the Persecuted – Week 2

 

2/13/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday, February 13, 2021 in a prayer conference call for the Persecuted Church. Click here to read or review Week 1.

4. Persecuted church to stand

(2 Corinthians 4:14-18) 14 knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will also raise us with Jesus, and will present us with you. 15 For all things are for your sakes, so that grace, having spread to more and more people, will cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

 16 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer person is decaying, yet our inner person is being renewed day by day. 17 For our momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

(2 Corinthians 5:1) For we know that if our earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made by hands, eternal in the heavens.

(Psalm 66:9) Who keeps us in life, and does not allow our feet to slip.

5. Protection for persecuted

Save us from powers of darkness. Cover us with precious blood of Messiah.

(Psalm 46)  God is our refuge and strength, a very ready help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth shakes and the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah

There is a river whose streams make the city of God happy, the holy dwelling places of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth quaked.
The Lord of armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

Come, behold the works of the Lord, who has inflicted horrific events on the earth.
He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Stop striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth.”
11 The Lord of armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

(Psalm 121) I will raise my eyes to the mountains; from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip; He who watches over you will not slumber.
Behold, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your [a]protector; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not [b]beat down on you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will [c]protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul.
The Lord will [d]guard your going out and your coming in from this time and forever.

(Psalm 90:15-17) 15Make us glad according to the days You have afflicted us, and the years we have seen evil.
16 Let Your work appear to Your servants and Your majesty to their children.
17 May the kindness of the Lord our God be upon us;
And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

(Psalm 62) My soul waits in silence for God alone; from Him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be greatly shaken.

How long will you attack a man, that you may murder him, all of you,
Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
They have planned only to thrust him down from his high position;
They delight in falsehood;
They bless with their mouth, but inwardly they curse. Selah

My soul, wait in silence for God alone, for my hope is from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my refuge; I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my glory rest on God; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah

People of low standing are only breath, and people of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up.
Together they are lighter than breath.
10 Do not trust in oppression, and do not vainly rely on robbery; if wealth increases, do not set your heart on it.

11 God has spoken once; twice I have heard this:
That power belongs to God;
12 And faithfulness is Yours, Lord, for You reward a person according to his work.

6. Forgive persecutors

(Psalm 94:1,2) Lord, God of vengeance, God of vengeance, shine forth!
Rise up, Judge of the earth, pay back retribution to the proud.

(Psalm 73:12-22) Behold, these are the wicked; and always at ease, they have increased in wealth.
13 Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure and washed my hands in innocence;
14 For I have been stricken all day long, and punished every morning.

15 If I had said, “I will speak this way,” Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of Your children.
16 When I thought of understanding this, it was troublesome in my sight
17 Until I entered the sanctuary of God; then I perceived their end.
18 You indeed put them on slippery ground; You dropped them into ruin.
19 How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors!
20 Like a dream when one awakes, Lord, when stirred, You will despise their image.

21 When my heart was embittered and I was pierced within,
22 Then I was stupid and ignorant; I was like an animal before You.

We will also continue to pray for,

Leah Sharibu and Alice – Nigeria

Pastor Wang Yi – China

Pastor Youcef Nadarkani- Iran

Anita – Iran

Persecution Watch: Pray for Believers in Iran

2/11/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, February 11, 2021 in a prayer Conference call for the persecuted church.

Iran: Population 83.6 million, Christians: 800,000 plus

The Islamic Republic of Iran is unleashing a sweeping crackdown on Christians, particularly those who have dared to convert from Islam to Christianity.

Most recently, nine Christians in Iran, possibly converts, have been convicted by the Islamic court, and each sentenced to five years in prison. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) arrested them for attending church services at a private house. According to a report by Article 18, an Iranian NGO which promotes religious freedom: “The arresting officers introduced themselves as agents from the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS).”They stormed the Christians’ homes in a coordinated operation at around 9am, confiscating Bibles, Christian literature, wooden crosses and pictures carrying Christian symbols, along with laptops, phones, all forms of identity cards, bank cards and other personal belongings.” Arresting agents also searched the work offices of at least two Christians and confiscated computer hard drives and security-camera recordings.”

Christian families are generally dehumanized and humiliated in the community during the agent’s raids. As the Article 18 report explained, “The officers are reported to have treated the Christians harshly, even though small children were present during the arrests.”

Across Iran, Christians are being arrested and jailed on trumped-up charges, such as “promoting Zionism”, “spreading corrupt Christians beliefs”, “propagating against the Islamic Republic in favor of Christianity”, “orientation toward the land of Christianity,” or “endangering national security”.

The claim of Iranian leaders that the peaceful religious practices of a minority group pose a grave a threat to national security is totally unacceptable. Iran’s total population is roughly 80 million, with anywhere between 117,000 and 3 million being Christian, according to various estimates. Even though Christians make up an extremely small part of the population, however, they have always been viewed, under the Islamic law of Iran, as a threat to “national security”.

The activities of Christians in the Islamic Republic are closely monitored by the Iranian intelligence service (MOIS) and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG). They are not permitted to share their faith with others or to conduct church services in Farsi, Iran’s national language.

Three of the Islamist judges known to preside over the trials of Christians are Mashallah Ahmadzadeh, Mohammed Moghiseh, and Ahmad Zargar. The international community needs to consider imposing sanctions on them.The NGO International Christian Concern (ICC) submitted the names of these judges to the US Treasury for consideration of sanctions. ICC stated:

“These three Revolutionary Court judges, and Evin Prison, have a long record of human rights abuses toward Iranian Christians. The judges are responsible for convicting Christians on trumped up charges. They wield Iran’s legal system as a systemic tool of repression against religious minorities. Often, when Christians stand firm in their faith, Iran’s judges send them to the notorious Evin Prison, located on the outskirts of Tehran. Stories of those who survived Evin Prison are heartbreaking; the wide variety of abuse faced by inmates is chilling.”

Converts to Christianity from Islam, according to the Iran’s Islamic law, can face the death penalty. The Iranian Islamist judges generally resort to verses from the Quran and Hadith (Muhammad’s sayings and acts) to justify their verdicts. One particular verse in Qur’an states:

“They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)

Even though the international community labels the government of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as a moderate administration, and even though Rouhani claims that the Islamic Republic treats all religions justly and fairly, Iran is one of the worst places in the world for Christians. According to the World Watch List compiled by Open Doors USA, Iran is currently ranked as the ninth-worst country for faith-based persecution. Iran systematically violates the U.S. International Religious Freedom Act and this is why, since 1999, the U.S. has designated the Islamic Republic as a “Country of Concern.”

Under international law, the Iranian government has an obligation to respect freedom of religion. Yet, while Christians are being increasingly persecuted and their rights are violated in Iran at an unprecedented level, the international community still remains silent.

  • Pray for the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that He will have an encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ and change His ways.
  • Pray Mashallah Ahmadzadeh, Mohammed Moghiseh, and Ahmad Zargar,the judges who preside over trials that accuse Christians. That the Lord will touch and convict them.
  • Pray for the international media to shine the spotlight on Iran and let the world see how Christians are denied religious freedom and are systematically persecuted.
  • Pray for for believers in isolation. Many Christians don’t dare to share their faith with anyone around them, or don’t know any other believers. They depend on online resources to learn more about God.
  • Pray for Christians who are currently locked up in prison for their faith. The conditions in Iran’s prisons are very poor and the pandemic has only made the situation worse.
  • Pray for those who advocate for the rights of Christians in Iran, both within and outside the country, that they would be listened to and that God would protect them.
  • Pray that the NGOs and all the others Organizations to will be protected from the prying eyes of the Intelligence service and the Revolutionary Guards and that they will be not hindered in bringing spiritual and other support to the persecuted.
  • Pray to the Lord that believers will continue testify and share the gospel in very difficult circumstances.
  • Pray that God would be at work in the hearts of Islamic extremists, take the scales from their eyes and let them be converted.
  • Pray for easy access to the internet and that both Believers and Muslims will see messages that encourage and or convict them.
  • Pray the Lord will enable Christians to forgive their persecutors.
  • Pray to the Lord that the astounding growth of Christianity will continue and that He will thwart the efforts of the forces of darkness.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

  • Leah Sharibu and Alice, prisoners of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for their release
  • Pray pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray Pray for Anita, a Christian convert persecuted for her faith in Iran.
  • 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: Perseverance in the Lord

2/8/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, our brothers and sisters persevere because He leads us to pray for them and because He keeps His promises to those who are faithful to Him.

Many are experiencing sorrow, or feel isolated and lonely, others may face torture and abuse, their physical bodies may be broken but their spirits are strengthened as they hold on to God’s Word and they become stronger even in weakness.

“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:35-37

When we pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters, we are also commanded to pray for their abusers, that they will eventually repent.

“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” Matthew 5:44-45

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. — Romans 12:14

The best part of been in the body of Christ means that you are never truly alone, not even Persecution can separate us from the love of God.

We pray for our brothers and sisters for God’s comfort.

“But I trust in you, Lord; I say, ‘You are my God.’ My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me.”. 

Psalm 31:14-15

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” Psalm 23:4-5

It is hard to say that persecuted Christians who have been physically and psychologically attacked are protected in the darkest valley. But, in a sense, they are safe within God’s divine plan.

The danger and the fear may be real, but so is God’s love for them and He is always with them. 

Many who are living through persecution do not ask for prayers for the abuse to stop, instead they seek the strength to endure it, because it is through persecution that God grows His kingdom and He promised eternal glory.

“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 5:10

“Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man. ‘Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.” Luke 6:22-23

Believers know that while they go through persecution what waits for them is, eternal glory in Heaven, eternity with Christ.

Please join us tonight to pray.

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 Je 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

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.

  • 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

In the love of Christ,

Nadia Dybvik, Persecution Watch Prayer Call Leader
