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
Nigeria: The Shalom Center, a long-awaited trauma center in Nigeria from Open Doors, started operations in March 2019 after it was delayed by a year due to challenges with security in the area. The center is intended as a place where people who have suffered various kinds of trauma can come for extended care to find peace. Since opening on March 1, the center has trained trainers and provided weekly in-depth care to survivors of violent attacks. Pray that those who desperately need trauma counseling will make it to the center.
India: Pray for American pastor Bryan Nerren, who is still banned from leaving India. Nerren was arrested this past October on the grounds that he had brought $40,000 with him into India. The funds were purposed towards pastoral visits and the cost of two conferences as he planned to travel throughout India and Nepal. He was never given any form to declare the funds when he was in the visa line, and authorities had questioned him during interrogation on whether the funds would be used for “Christian purposes.” He was jailed for six days before being allowed to pay bail, after which the judge ordered a travel ban and took his passport.
