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
China: Due to new religious regulations, many reports of crackdowns on churches are emerging — experienced by both Three-Self Patriotic Movement (state-registered) and house churches all over the country. Crackdowns include the confiscation of Christian material — including Bibles — raids, fines and arrests, especially of church leaders. The authorities do everything they can to block media reports. Pray that the gospel would continue to spread despite the government’s desire to squash all evangelism efforts.
North Korea: Pray for Christians who often live isolated from other believers and fearful of being discovered by non-believers as Christianity is the state’s top enemy — being exposed can mean prison camps or even death. Yet they continue to preserve their faith, despite hardships and constant fear of being discovered. 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.
