Persecution Watch: Prayers of the Righteous

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Saturday July 16, 2022 in a prayer conference call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch.

Prayers of The Righteous

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”James 5:16

Psalm 146:2  “I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.”

  • Pray believers would praise the Lord more; sing his praise in everything

Hebrews 13:3  “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

  • Help us to remember and pray for those in prison; pray for more intercessors.

Psalm 118:5  “In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free.”

  • Pray for release of captives, whether in physical prison or other captivity.

Psalm 116:15  “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”

  • Pray for the widows and fatherless of those martyred; pray also for the families of those imprisoned or otherwise held captive, being effectively widowed or fatherless (or motherless).

Proverbs 24:11  “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward     slaughter.”

  • Pray for the persecuted who are unjustly led away to physical death; that they may have no fear and be able to forgive their persecutors.
  • Pray for the salvation of those those being led away to spiritual death.

Psalm 102:28  “The children of Your servants will live in Your presence; their descendants will be established before You.”

  • Pray for the salvation of believers’ children and grandchildren.

Proverbs 24:17  “Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice.”

  • Lord, help us not to rejoice when our enemy falls, but remember to pray for them.

Psalm 59:1  “Deliver me from my enemies, O God, protect me from those who rise up against me.”

Psalm 142:6  “Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.”

  • Pray for those who smuggle Bibles and other Christian literature:  supernatural protection, provision, connections.
  • Pray for protection and guidance for those who share the gospel.

Proverbs 24:3  “By wisdom a house is built; and through understanding it is established.”

  • Pray for wisdom and understanding for all believers, whether in ministry or not.

Proverbs 28:12  “When the righteous triumph there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, men go into hiding.” 

(Proverbs 28:28 says the same thing in reverse order)

  • Pray for godly leaders; put down those who oppose Christianity and raise up godly ones.

Proverbs 29:12  “If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.”

  • Pray leaders would not listen to lies, would seek the truth; send godly counselors.

1 Corinthians 1:10 “I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.”

  • Pray for unity in the body of the Messiah.

We are continuing to lift up these persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

  • Leah Sharibu, captive 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.
