Prayer wall

Our commitment to the persecuted Church is not simply a matter of human rights advocacy and political lobbying. It is also a spiritual mission. And prayer is the most powerful tool we can use to help our brothers and sisters in Christ who are struggling against injustice.

What has God placed on your heart to pray for at the moment? Please share your prayers by posting them on our prayer wall. Jesus said “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” and when we pray, God moves in amazing ways. So let’s join together today to intercede for the persecuted Church. 

Heavenly Father, I pray for the millions of Christians who face hardship and persecution because they love You. Help them to find comfort and joy in the midst of oppression, may others be encouraged by their example and may we who are not living under daily threat of persecution never take for granted our freedom to follow You. In Jesus' precious name, Amen

Father, we know that You sent Your son Jesus that all might have ETERNAL life in You throughout the whole world. I ask you, Father, to save men and women in high places, whose voices are heard by millions. Bring them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and cause them to proclaim their faith though it cost them all. I pray you will pour out your Holy Spirit on people who produce and star in movies, who make commercials, news broadcasters, interviewers, commentators, television and radio owners and managers. May all people who have the eyes and ears of the masses in remote villages, towns and cities speak your name clearly and always to those who have not heard about the love of Jesus. May they show the way of salvation through Jesus Christ though it may cost them family, friends, home, income and life. Save those people in the Bollywood,Japanese, Chinese, Hollywood industries, all countries who are in the media that they may share the gospel of the Living Word to people that have no other way to hear your message of hope and love. May movie super hero's become hero's of the nations for proclaiming Jesus. You alone are God of this world and your power knows no end. Amen

Let the glory of Heaven be real to us that we may overcome every obstacle and persecution here on Earth.

In the end take all glory and comfort every believing soul. In Jesus' Holy Name.
Tunde, Nigeria

Oramos para que se intensifiquem os protestos reais contra toda forma de perseguição, contra a omissão e os aproveitadores políticos. Pedimos a Deus que breve venha sua justiça contra os malfeitores, os que tramam contra a opinião pública, os que praticam a desonra e a violência oclusa. Que a luz da Verdade resplandeça sobre os sinceros e que seja poderoso o braço de Deus estendido contra os Seus inimigos, os que hostilizam os que a Deus servem para seus fins carnais.
