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
“Coronavirus” and the impact of government “responses” worldwide
Please join us today in praying for a swift end to the chaos being caused by government “responses”, worldwide, to the “coronavirus”, and that God protects and provides for all of his children during this challenging time as economies are being crashed, fear and scarcity are on the rise and freedom of movement is being curtailed.
Given that we’re living in the last days, it’s crucial that we all put on the whole armour of God, so that we are as prepared as possible to stay strong, no matter how difficult life gets.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:10-20)
Introduction to prayers for Sadia in Cameroon during the week of 15-20 March
Sadia (anonymized) is a Christian convert from Islam in Cameroon. Now 19 years old, Sadia became a Christian through the testimony of some friends and was secretly baptized in November 2017. When her family found out, they were very angry — forcing Sadia into hiding. In 2018, she was diagnosed with cancer and since then has faced two surgeries and aggressive chemotherapy. Today, she remains determined to follow Christ.
Cameroon: Pray that Sadia continues to grow in her knowledge of Christ and His love for her.
China: Pray for a church in Zhejiang which was recently raided. China Aid reports that during the conflict, members of the Nubu Church Ganxi branch attempted to stop the police, but were beaten in return. Some bled while others suffered fractures. Read more on International Christian Concern.

CHINA: THE NARROW PATH OF THORNS
Bob Fu is founder and president of the China Aid Association, and he’s one of the most knowledgeable people in the world on the Christian persecution in China. He’ll help explain why the Chinese government is cracking down on churches—even registered, “legal” churches— and how it is demanding Christians’ first loyalty be to the Communist Party and President Xi Jinping.
