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
Ed, Ben and Ben: Pray for these three young men who listened intently to Sean as he shared the gospel with them in Reading, England. Pray that the each call upon Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, that God surrounds them all with a hedge of protection, and that he raises them up as true disciples of Christ to share the gospel others.
North Korea: Pray that government leaders would see the truth of the gospel and to allow for religious freedom within the country.
Pakistan: Pray for Pakistani Christians who are being persecuted by their own families. Pakistan is number five on the Open Doors 2020 World Watch List. It is most known for Islamic oppression against Christians, especially as it is a Muslim state. Therefore, institutionalized discrimination and disproportionate Blasphemy laws are used against Christians. It is more dangerous for converts because it is shameful to their community, and the family of the convert will, at best, cast them out. Read more on International Christian Concern.

PAKISTAN: "WORTH THE RISK"
96.4% of Pakistanis are Muslims. Brother Charles, an American teaching at a university in Pakistan, lives with his family in Pakistan. While there, Charles has spoken with many Muslims and he explains that many have never heard a clear presentation of the true gospel. Charles talks about how we can speak with Muslims in ways that plant gospel seeds.
