Pray for Believers Celebrating Christmas in Secret

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."

Openly Participating in Christmas Can be Difficult

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.

May the peace and joy

May the peace and joy from Christ’s birth fill your hearts as you celebrate Christmas even in your secret places. May the reason of Christmas HIMSELF be exalted in your worship. May the PRINCE OF PEACE, the GLORIOUS LAMB OF GOD, THE OMNIPOTENCE( the one who promised “I am with you always”) join our hearts together in worship. May HE envelope us with HIS GLORY, GRACE, GOODNESS, LOVE, MERCY AND FAVOUR in this season.
IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME. AMEN.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Dear GOD as I come

Dear GOD as I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ , whom we have our access to you, may I offer this prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters in North Korea, Nigeria, Iraq & all. It is hard to comprehend the horrible things which go on-abuse, starvation, loneliness, and such sadness. May your hand of grace be felt by each as they willing to suffer for our LORD JESUS, for your WORD and sharing of their FAITH. Give them, numbness of the pain over mind&bodies, show your LOVE for them

“Though we walk through The Valley of the shadow of death… His rod ( Authority) and his staff (guidance) they comfort me”. He is our Good Shepherd, he leadeth us, he is with us always.
Though we may suffer for a season do not fear, pray, declare the Word for it is truth. Resist the devil and he shall flee.
