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.
Thank God that the judge in the appeal of Christian couple Homayoun Zhaveh and Sara Ahmadi said their church activities were ‘not considered as acts against the country’s security’. Pray that more members of the judiciary in Iran will take this view.
Thank God for the acquittal on appeal of Christian couple Homayoun Zhaveh and Sara Ahmadi. They had been sentenced to two and 11 years respectively for house church activities in Iran, after their arrest in 2019.
Ask God to protect the many courageous Christians in Iran who boldly share God’s word despite the constant risk of arrest and imprisonment.
Pray for churches in Indonesia involved in evangelistic outreach which are a particular target for Islamist extremist groups.

Pray that politicians in Indonesia will not be willing to succumb to pressure to persecute churches in order to win votes ahead of local and national elections in 2024.
