To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
Continue to pray for Halla (who features in our recent film Halla’s story) and the many other displaced Christians being cared for by our partners in Erbil, Kurdistan. Pray that Christ will sustain and encourage them.

When Myriam was nine, she gave an interview which attracted international attention: she forgave Islamic State whose violence forced her family to flee Qaraqosh in Iraq. Now 14, Myriam has returned with her family. Pray that God will protect them.

Pray that the church in China will grow in unity and faith as a result of persecution.
Authorities in Zhejiang province of China have introduced new restrictions on churches, including bans on baptisms and collection boxes. Pray the gospel will spread, despite these hurdles.
Pray for six Uyghur Christians in Xinjiang province, China who have been sentenced to between five and seven years for ‘illegal’ church activity. Some have only recently come to Christ.
