Pray For Our Persecuted Brothers and Sisters

Living and enjoying the comforts and freedoms in America, it is easy to forget there are many believers around the world harshly persecuted for their Christian faith. Pastor Saeed has been imprisoned for almost two years in Iran and as you can see in the graphic below, Iran is one of the top 10 countries for persecution of Christians.

Our brothers and sisters around the world need our prayers. Hebrews 13:3 tells us to, "Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering." 

Here are some ways you can pray:
  • Pray believers will stand firm in their faith
  • Pray for persecuted believers to draw even closer to the Lord, be strengthened, and continue to courageously share Christ. 

Gospel for Asia has many more requests for persecuted believers here. 

May we all REMEMBER our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world and faithfully pray for them and for the gospel to spread to all nations.
