To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
When Release partners provide practical help for people in desperate poverty in Upper Egypt, those they help are hugely encouraged to know they are part of a global Christian family who care for them. Praise God for the way this builds their faith.
Often, when our partners arrive to help families in Upper Egypt, the locals’ first response is to say that they were praying for help and then, ‘You showed up.’ Thank God that prayers are powerful!
In Iraq, the Medical Clinic at St George’s Church provides medical care to around 80 patients a day, and a new primary school will bring Muslim and Christian children together. Pray that God will meet those in their care.
Please pray for God’s continued protection and favour on the ministry of St George’s Church, Baghdad. Praise God that Rev Faiz Jerjees was honoured by the Iraqi Government for his reconciliation work and his role supporting the human rights of all Iraqis.
Many Iraqi Christian refugees fled to Jordan and many are looking to seek asylum in Australia, where our partner FRRME is providing emergency relief in partnership with local churches.
The Christian population in Iraq has dropped from 1.5 million in 2003 to less than 200,000 today. Pray that God will multiply this remnant so that His church regains its full strength – then grows even further.
Pray for thousands of Christians who have returned to their ancestral homes in the Nineveh Plain, northern Iraq, now the Islamic State occupation of their lands is over. But others have moved in to this region too, including Sunni families and Shia militias loyal to Iran.
'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'.
