Please Join Us Today in Prayer
We believe in the power of prayer to heal sickness, to provide for families, to surround believers with a hedge of protection, and to change lives for the better. God’s Word tells us that all believers can go boldly unto the throne of grace in times of need, whether those needs be our own or those of others. Please join us in praying for others around the world.
Who We’re Praying For Today
North Korea: In North Korea, “Hananim,” which means “God,” is considered a swear word with no connection to a spiritual reality. Pray with secret believers who are sharing the truth about this word with others.
Pakistan: Pray for Pakistani Christians who experience widespread job discrimination because of their religious identity. Because of this discrimination, many of Pakistan’s Muslim community consider Christians to be second class citizens fit only for menial and dirty jobs. According to a study by Open Doors USA, 80% of the Punjab’s sanitation workforce is Christian. This is a drastic over-representation when considering Christians only make up 1.6% of the country’s total population. Read more on International Christian Concern.

PAKISTAN: THE PERFECT PLACE
Pakistan is 98% Muslim, but Faisal and Carrie say it’s “the perfect place” to share the gospel, because the need for the gospel is so great. They are showing the light of Christ in Pakistan through ministry to children in a school and through leadership development training for pastors and church leaders, in addition to Bible distribution work.
