Pray for the Persecuted Church
Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also (Hebrews 13:3).
The Middle East has become a death trap for those who profess faith in Christ. In 1947, 12 percent of Iraqis were Christian. Now, the percentage is 0.8, as ISIS empties cities and villages of millennia-old Christian presence. In Saudi Arabia, the Grand Mufti has declared it necessary to destroy all the churches in the region. In Pakistan, our Christian sister Aasiya Bibi is on death row for blasphemy charges for her Christian faith. Nigerians daily live in terror from Boko Haram, which is in a competition with ISIS to see who can murder more innocents.
Geographically, they are far removed from us, but spiritually, our Christian family should be wrapped in our arms through prayer and activism.
In Jeremiah 20:11, we read of the Lord’s provision for us, a reminder that the persecutors will stumble and fail. Please link arms with us on behalf of our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters.
We pledge to never forget them or abandon them. Please join us in praying for our persecuted brethren. Visit our website and click the World Prayer Map for more specifics on how to stand in the gap for persecuted Christians.
