Pray for religious liberty today!

On Saturday, you read about Religious Liberty Trends in 2010 and how religious liberty is in decline globally. Please pray with us today.

Gracious Lord,

We ask you to bless your Church with a great awakening of faith.

May imminently imperilled Christians in Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Egypt put their faith in you alone.

May increasingly subjugated and threatened Christians throughout the Muslim world—including Indonesia (especially Papua and West Java), Malaysia, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Iran and the North Caucasus—put their faith in you alone.

May repressed and persecuted believers throughout Asia—including China, North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, India, Maldives and Sri Lanka—put their faith in you alone.

May Western Christians experiencing the consequences of “culture change” put their faith in you alone.

May those who advocate for religious liberty, for the persecuted and for justice and righteousness put their faith in you alone.

May those who work to raise awareness and relieve suffering put their faith in you alone. For “without faith it is impossible to please” the Lord (Hebrews 11:6).

We ask this so that “all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone are the LORD” (Isaiah 37:20b).

In Christ’s name, we pray.

Amen!
