Release International Prayer Shields, Nigeria and India


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.

Faithful God, we pray that You will empower Your people in Nigeria to persevere. They have experienced so much suffering and some wrestle with doubt and difficult questions. Assure them of Your love and show them that You are the God who suffers with them. Keep them in Your steadfast love.
