To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
Prayers For Our Persecuted Family.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to pray for our persecuted family so we produce a daily prayer shield which gives a specific need that you can pray for each day. You can see today’s prayer, plus those for the last 6 days, below. You can also sign up using the form above to receive our Email Prayer Alert which we send out whenever we become aware of a specific and immediate situation which requires urgent prayer.
Pray for Pastor Wang’s son, Joshua, whom officials in China escort every day to a school chosen by the state. Our partners say the teenager has become withdrawn.
Please continue to pray for Chinese Pastor Wang Yi, leader of Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu, Sichuan province, who is still serving a nine-year sentence. His wife, Jiang Rong, and family are under 24-hour surveillance (see Voice magazine, pages 16-18).
Release International’s partners say it is impossible to count the number of prisoners of faith in China: many arrests are undocumented. Pray that each one will know that God sees them.
Please pray for Zafar Bhatti in Pakistan, whose life sentence for blasphemy was changed to the death sentence last year. Zafar has been in ill-health. Pray his appeal will be heard soon.
Release International associate ministries are distributing children’s Bibles in Urdu: most Pakistani Christians cannot afford to buy Bibles. Pray that the children receiving God’s word will understand God’s love for them, amid persecution.
Pray that the authorities in Pakistan will take concerted action to end the abduction of Christian young women and girls.
Please continue to pray for the safe return of the many Christian girls in Pakistan who have been abducted, forcibly converted and married to Muslim men. They include ‘Helen’, 22, who disappeared in February, allegedly abducted by neighbours.
'Let us be on the side of those who sit in jails and are sentenced to death for their faith. Let us pray for them and help them'.
