Pray for the Persecuted Chruch

This Sunday, November 8, Christians around the world are asked to join in praying for our brothers and sisters around the world who are facing persecution because of their allegiance to Christ. Let's pray that their faith will remain strong as they face unbearable suffering. Most of us would not choose suffering, but when the day comes that we might be called upon to suffer for our Lord, we pray that we will not shrink from it. So we should pray for courage and strength for those who even now have been called to suffer.

Let's wrap our arms around those who suffer for the name of Jesus and lift them to God through prayer, especially this Sunday.

To learn more, go to There you will find a number of ministries that are working with the persecuted church and meet specific people for whom you can pray.
