Pray for the Persecuted
Prayer changes things. This we know. But just how do we pray for the persecuted church?
- Sign up for the Be-A-Voice Network and commit to public prayer. Once you sign up you will receive weekly prayer bulletins detailing specific situations for prayer.
- Print or e-mail prayer bulletins. Give them out to your Bible study group, Sunday school class, gathering of Christian friends, or any place where you can share the burdens of the persecuted church. Ask your friends, family and local church to pray with you for the persecuted. See sample Prayer Bulletins: Color or B&W
- Invite your Christian friends to join Be-A-Voice and lead their own prayer groups.
- Use prayer resources from VOM including:
- Persecuted Church Prayer Guide: This prayer guide offers specific Scripture verses for and about the persecuted. The Word of God is a powerful force of comfort for those who are arrested, imprisoned and tortured for Christ.
- The Persecuted Church Global Report and Map: This annual report gives a listing of the countries around the globe that are hostile to or restrict the gospel. The global report includes descriptions about the religious persecution that occurs in each country listed. The map shows the country locations.
- VOM Annual Prayer Calendar: Using this calendar you can pray daily for the needs of the persecuted church. Great for daily devotionals.
Prayer is an invaluable gift we can give to our brothers and sisters who are suffering because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Thank you for your commitment to pray for the persecuted church.
