Write a Prayer for Persecuted Christians
PRAISE GOD FOR PASTOR BRUNSON’S RELEASE
Today Pastor Brunson was released after being held prisoner in Turkey for over two years. While the Turkish courts did not declare the American pastor to be innocent, they sentenced him to three years and one month of prison but chose to release him based on time already served.
STAND WITH LEAH SHARIBU AND THE NIGERIAN CHURCH
On October 2nd – 4th, Churches in Nigeria are calling on Christians around the world to pray and fast for the safe release of Leah Sharibu, a Nigerian Christian teenager who was kidnapped by an extremist group that is located primarily in Northern Nigeria. This call comes after Boko Haram’s execution of a kidnapped aid worker.
Pray for Secret Believers in North Korea
The reality of life for Christians in North Korea is hard to imagine—children are indoctrinated to worship the country’s leadership from birth, and any free expression, speech or religion is clamped down tightly. Many of our North Korean brothers and sisters are suffering under unthinkable conditions. Please join us in standing with them in prayer. Pray that they will be strengthened in their suffering.
