The Persecuted Church

2016 | by Clint | Category: Global,Prayer,Video

“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” (Hebrews 13:3 ESV)

10 Ways to Pray for our Persecuted Family

1) Pray that persecuted believers will sense God’s presence (Hebrews 13:5)

2) Pray that they will feel connected to the greater Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:20, 26)

3) Pray that they will be comforted by God when their family members are killed, injured or imprisoned for their witness (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)

4) Pray that they will have more opportunities to share the Gospel (Colossians 4:3)

5) Pray for their boldness to make Christ known (Philippians 1:14)

6) Pray that they will forgive and love their persecutors (Matthew 5:44)

7) Pray that their ministry activities will remain undetected by authorities or others who wish to silence them (Acts 9:25)

8) Pray that they will rejoice with suffering (Acts 5:41)

9) Pray that they will be refreshed through God’s Word and grow in their faith (Ephesians 6:17)

10) Pray that they will be strengthened through the prayers of fellow believers (Jude 1:20-25)



“…and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles. When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.” (Matthew 10:18-20 ESV)

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”(Matthew 5:11-12 ESV)
