Release International Prayer Shields, Afghanistan, Sudan
Prayers For Our Persecuted Family.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to pray for our persecuted family so we produce a daily prayer shield which gives a specific need that you can pray for each day. You can see today’s prayer, plus those for the last 6 days, below. You can also sign up using the form above to receive our Email Prayer Alert which we send out whenever we become aware of a specific and immediate situation which requires urgent prayer.
Children’s Prayer Sheet
It’s not only adults who can pray for our persecuted family. Every month we produce a prayer sheet aimed specifically for children. Each sheet has specific activities and prayers which will help children learn more about how persecution affects children in other countries. You can visit our Children’s Prayer Sheet page here.
Pray for the provision of essential food and fuel for Christian families in Afghanistan during the harsh winter.
Taliban rule in Afghanistan is adding to pressures upon hard-pressed Christians. Pray that they will find ways to connect with other believers and draw strength from this fellowship.
Continue to pray for Christians in the contested Nuba Mountain, Blue Nile and Darfur regions on Sudan’s border with South Sudan, where persecution has persisted for years.
An apostasy charge can make a Sudanese Christian a target for attack, even if it is later dropped. Please pray God’s protection over six Christians who have recently faced this charge in Sudan.
Pray for Sudanese Christian couple Nada and Hamouda. They were charged with adultery when a court ruled their marriage was ‘invalid’ after Hamouda became a Christian. Since Nada too turned to Christ, they have been charged with apostasy.
Thank God that a court in Sudan has dismissed apostasy charges against four Christians with a Muslim background in Central Darfur state. They had been facing the death penalty.
Sudanese Christians in some areas are experiencing increasing harassment and persecution. Pray that God will renew in them a ‘steadfast spirit’ (Psalm 51:10).
