While American Christians may take the ability to celebrate Christmas for granted, this isn’t the case for many Christians around the world. Believers in some places are restricted from worshiping publicly. In some regions, for example, converts from Islam must celebrate Christmas in secret to avoid triggering the anger of family or community members who might threaten their safety. In other places, Christmas is a reminder of great losses that believers have experienced due to their Christian faith.
"We waited for three years. This year Christmas will be very different because we have returned to our town Baghdeda, Qaraqosh. Being able to go to church and seeing that there are people who are celebrating Christmas is something great."

For people in Nigeria, Christmas can be a reminder of the homes and villages they were chased out of by attacking militants. For North Koreans, Christmas is another time when their faith has to be whispered about in the shadows for fear of death. In Iraq, Christmas is a time of joyful return to homes, and a sobering realization of how much Christians have lost because of ISIS.
I pray for my persecuted brothers and sisters around the globe that they will remain faithful and strong in the new year, and their light will continue shining brightly leading ever more people to Jesus Christ.
I love you and remember you in my prayers daily!
I pray for strong faith and trust in God for all believers. For the strength of Jesus, courage, determination, boldness and spiritaul insight and wisdom. To be able to forgive instead if resent. For true understanding of challenging situations. To always remember the hope that goes beyond the hate.

Dear Jesus, Abba Father, and Holy Spirit; you know my heart, I have been looking for a place to pour out my heart and Spirit for some time. I have interceded for others in Japan who are oppressed because of their faith and because of their history. I have worked along side two missionaries in intercessory prayer for their church and their people and their country. This was my first experience with a persecuted people. I now am opening my heart to China, and other areas of the world .
My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I pray that God’s warring and guardian angels will surround you and your loved ones. Even though I do not know your names, I pray for you often. May the love and comfort of the Holy Spirit and prayers from other believers minister to you.
God’s Blessings from the USA
You are not forgotten. Your brothers and sisters in free society pray for your safety and for your freedom. But most of all we pray for your courage to suffer with Christ and that we too might follow your example of following Christ where the cost is everything,
Abba, You see Your children who are being persecuted for the sake of the gospel of Christ. You hear their cries. You know them by name. They are Your children. You will not leave them or forsake them. I pray they experience Your very presence and power as they share the love of Christ with those who do not yet believe. Empower them by Your Holy Spirit to do mighty works that can only be attributed to You. Bring their families to faith in Christ. Use them for Your glory!
Father, we thank you for our faithful brothers and sisters in China. Help them to stand fast in their faith and show Jesus’ love to those who persecute them.

Strengthen my Chinese friends and their families and children to have faith and courage.

Pour out your wisdom, perseverance and grace upon your suffering people in China. Be with the shepherds you have appointed to care for your people.

He promised that He would never leave you or forsake you. Remember that His grace is sufficient no matter what you are going through. May the peace, love, joy and hope of Christmas be with you at this time and throughout the coming year!

Let them be able to live in peace and worship YOU and your son Lord Jesus and be able to celebrate Christmas, Heavenly Father. In Jesus’s Mighty Name I Pray This Prayer And I Also Pray This Prayer In Love Amen ❤
Praise the Lord! Thanking the Lord that you can celebrate Christmas this year with other believers, praying for you all, and for all the believers who can’t worship and celebrate in safety.
Thank you Father for the believers you have saved in countries where persecution is strong. We praise you that Your power and strength is much more stronger than any human force. This Christmas, protect those who love You and seek to worship You for sending Your Son to save us from our sin. We pray that you would use these people to shine Your light into the world ; whether to us fellow believers or to the very people persecuting them. Thank You for Your provision always. In Jesus name,
Holy Ghost of You Father God in the Lord Jesus Christ, I’m praying Your will for increase of Your faith in all believers to believe, confidence in Your promised victory (John 3: 16), continued keeping and peace of mind. As we all share trials and oppressions together, greatly, Jesus You said, “I will never leave you alone”. Hallelujah, thank you, amen. Be encouraged, love !
Jesus we celebrate the freedom you bring through your birth, life, teachings, death, and resurrection! It’s not the freedom the world offers, it’s a wholly separate wholeness. May that be real for our sisters and brothers in places where they can’t publicly share their excitement. May we celebrate all the more because our family in you can’t celebrate in the same way.
We’re grateful the government is on your shoulders – we can rest all these things on you knowing you will make all things right
God bless you and sustain you by His willing Spirit! Know that many pray for you every day! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
We in Puerto Rico pray for you and your family, that God bless and protect your family. That many in your country be saved by the blood of Jesuschrist, our savior. Amén!
I pray that the awesome example of these Christians, suffering for their belief in the Lord Jesus Christ, reinvigorates a genuine sense of faith among all Christians around the world who take their rights to practice their beliefs for granted and have never faced such persecution, and would likely never be as strong as these faithful have been. I pray to God they never have to face the same test!
Thank you for my precious brothers and sisters! Although we are many miles apart, we are united in Spirit! This season, fill their hearts with your unspeakable love, joy, and peace! Strengthen them & protect them from every fiery dart of the enemy! Surround their homes, their families, and children! Fill them with your wisdom, boldness, & Holy Ghost fire! May they fulfill their destiny! May they walk in your power & anointing! Keep their hearts burning for you, Yeshua! Amen
Oro para que puedan celebrar con la libertad de Cristo la libertad que Nadir les puede quitar, oro para que Diosnkes fortalezca y sus vidas sean llenas del pose sobrenatural del Espíritu Santo. Oro para el Señor les protege les libre de todo mal y guarde sus corazones, oro para que nunca les falte la provisión y sean invisibles a sus perseguidores. En el nombre de Jesús amén.
Lord Jesus fill my brothers and sisters with your love, mercy, grace and power. Nothing in all creation can separate us from the love of God which is in Jesus Christ our Lord. We are more than conquerors through Christ who loves us. I pray that your hearts will be filled with the goodness of God and His presence be with you ever minute of every day. Our God is an awesome God. God be magnified- God be magnified. His love will never fail you.
Holy Father, I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ, men and women of courage and tenacity whose strength of faith, rooted in the Gospel and Scripture, is a lesson to us all. It is humbling and uplifting all at once.
I pray that the beating heart of faith remains a light unto the world, even as Jesus life, love, and sacrifice for His children shines through our lives.
I pray all God’s blessings upon our brothers and sisters through this time of celebration.
I thank the Lord for your courage and strength as you face each day. During this time of rejoicing and remembering the birth of our Savior, may you find joy even in your difficult circumstances. May the Holy Spirit renew your spirit every day and your brothers and sisters in Christ lift you up before the throne of Almighty God in prayer.
Lord, please remember those on the front lines of this world this Christmas… the ones facing persecution for their beliefs. My family and I ask for a hedge of protection around these fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. May your will be done in all things and I ask their safety is in your will this season. You know their needs and you know their faith. Let your peace and blessings overflow on and around them to the Glory of the Father. This we ask in the precious name of Jesus.
I pray that you will be able to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ joyfully and safely with the family of believers where you are, but if that is not possible, I am so thankful you can do it secretly or simply silently and the Lord will be so honored by your love. Hope in the Lord, for you are being prayed for by sisters in Christ all over the world.
With tremendous love,
Dear Lord Heavenly Father, please bless and protect my brothers and sisters in Christ where ever they are and their friends and family and salvation for those who persecute the church to know you dear Jesus as Lord and savior and to keep them safe and growth in the faith.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I don’t know your names, but God does. Your names are written on His hand. I pray for you often….that God would provide, protect, and put his waring and guardian angels round about you and your loved ones.
I pray for shalom to surround you during this season of Christ’s birth.
Thank you for your love for all of us. Bless my dear brothers and sisters around the world, especially those who worship you at great risk. May they know my family and I love them and pray for them. Protect them from harm and bring them amazing joy in you. Please meet their needs and may many come to know you, Jesus, through them. God, please soften the heart of those who persecute and show them the truth of your love. Thank you Jesus for the privelage of uniting together in prayer.
My prayer for my precious fellow believers who are suffering under persecution and oppression for their faith is that we who enjoy the liberty of being able to worship Christ our savior would stand in solidarity and prayerful support with them and do all within our means to lift them up and to urge our leaders to act on their behalf to protect them and to demand their humane treatment and relief from persecution and release from unjust imprisonment. And for them to know they are not forgotten.
May Jesus look bountifully and gracefully upon You this coming Christmas, with all the Love and Blessing availed to You, while still here upon this sin-filled planet. It reminds us that we are not home here. The reason being, the Christian has such a tough time here, is so that when we do go home, we will be so very appreciative of Our True Home, in Heaven, with Our Lord and Saviour !!!!

Wrap your lobing arms around them and increase their joy.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen!
Lord, many think they are serving you when they persecute your people, who are called by your son’s name, “Christians” Please show them their error, as you did Saul of Tarsus, so they redirect their dedication against you to strong dedication for you, as you did Paul.
