Today we stop to pray for persecuted Christians. In many parts of the world it is illegal to meet as Christians.
Pray for strength and endurance for believers who face persecution. Ask that God would continue to reveal himself and bring many to faith in Jesus. Ask that persecuted Christians would have access to the Bible in their own language.
From Isaiah 44, pray that our persecuted brothers and sisters would keep their eyes on the LORD Almighty, who is the first and the last, apart from him there is no God, the one who is the Rock, and that they not bow their knee to any other god or idol to save them.
Pray for underground and house churches, who risk everything to meet together. Ask that God would raise up pastors to teach and equip their churches. Ask that we – the church in Australia – stand with our persecuted brothers and sisters.
Pray for revival in the hardest places for Christians: North Korea, Iraq, Eritrea, Afghanistan, and Syria.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
