Release International Prayer Shields, China and Iran
DAILY PRAYER SHIELD
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 Chinese preacher Dai Zhichao of Chengdu Early Rain Covenant Church, Sichuan province, who has been under house arrest for months.
Henan house church leader Chen Lijun has been charged with fraud: his wife, Li Xiaoyan, believes his arrest in China is linked to buying Christian books online and his faith. Pray that all charges against Chen will be dropped.
Pray for wisdom for Pastor Pan Yongguang as he considers the future of the exiled Shenzhen Holy Reformed Church, which moved en masse to South Korea two years ago. He had suffered years of regular interrogations by officials in China.
Pray for Pastor Pan Yongguang and 60 members of the Shenzhen Holy Reformed Church who were forced to leave China for South Korea two years ago, after sustained persecution. South Korea has refused to grant them asylum.
Thank God that the church in Iran continues to expand, amid growing disillusionment with other religions. Pray that His word will touch hearts and lives in miraculous ways.
Pray for the Iranian families who have received support such as warm clothing through a Release International partner. Pray that they will know they are not forgotten.
Pray for safety and spiritual refreshing for Iranian believers travelling to training events in Turkey. Pray that this will strengthen their witness to friends and family back home.
