Release International Prayer Shields, China, Iraq

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.


Thank God for the bold faith in China of elderly believer Brother Wang who resisted pressure from officials in Shanxi province to testify against his pastors in Xi’an Church of Abundance. He was tied to a chair for 24 hours and threatened.


Pray for believers in China who are resisting concerted government efforts to ‘sinicise’ the church, to bring it in line with the officially atheist Communist Party.


Pray that as Iraqi people grow weary of conflict and corruption, and search for hope and truth, they will find Christ.


Praise God that, though Islamic State militants destroyed every Bible they could find in Iraq, it is believed that far more Bibles have been distributed since, thanks to Release and others.


Pray that God will protect Bishop Bahzad Mziri and his Duhok church in Iraq from retaliation by militant Islamic groups. The church has had to curtail its public activities since he was charged with blasphemy.


Bahzad Mziri, an Anabaptist bishop in Duhok, Iraq, was charged with blasphemy relating to a social media comment. Bishop Bahzad has apologised, saying it was made on his behalf without his approval. Pray the charge will be dropped.


Pray for Jagarkhuin Abdulrahman Ismael from Duhok, Kurdistan, whose appeal against a conviction for defamation, linked to social media posts, was rejected recently.
