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: Pray for the country’s food crisis to be resolved and for peace and religious freedom in North Korea. Winters can be very difficult and food is often scarce — especially this winter following the recent drought. However, even in the midst of this difficulty, Christians often share a portion of their rice with their neighbors — a practice called “holy rice.”
Pakistan: Pray for two friends who were accused of blasphemy in Pakistan. According to recent local news, radical Muslims holding a grudge against 40-year old Shahbaz Masih, a well-known Christian in the community, dragged him and beat him. His Muslim friend, Muhammad Ishaq, heard him and rushed to his aid, making known his friendship with a Christian. Because of this, they were both charged with burning pages of the Quran under blasphemy law. Although no evidence was brought forward to corroborate this falsehood, police gave in to the extremist pressure and arrested the men. Read more on International Christian Concern.
NORTH KOREA: ONLY CHRISTIANITY
“Only Christianity can cut the root of our communism.” — Kim Il Sung, founder of North Korea and grandfather of current leader, Kim Jong Un.
PRAY FOR NORTH KOREA
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.
