Prayers for the persecuted
One way we aim to encourage prayer for the persecuted is through our online Persecuted Church Prayer Wall. Our prayer wall serves as a source of encouragement to persecuted Christians who are able to visit the site and read prayers on their behalf.
Below are a few recent prayers that have been posted to the Prayer Wall. Consider adding your own prayer for the persecuted by clicking here.
Abba Father. You are awesome and mighty, the only true and living God. You created all things and in Your hand is all power. Every authority, visible and invisible, is subject to You. In the name of Your Son and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I bring before all my brothers and sisters who are suffering persecution all around the world. Strengthen them with all might and help them not lose heart but to trust You completely. Comfort them in their affliction and deliver them at Your appoint time. Amen.
Jesus, stand on your persecuted church side helping and protecting. Our brothers and sisters need to feel your loving arms in spite of the horrible things around them. Keep them strong in You. Help them grow as a church. May their lives glorify You and bring freedom to Your Kingdom. In Christ´s name. Amen.
Father, please let your oppressed children know of the glory you have stored up for them as they continue to be faithful to Your Kingdom. May they be encouraged and filled with joy and even more faith to do the work You have entrusted to them, and may they live in peace, safety, and freedom. In the most holiest name of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, one God forever. Amen.
