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 Henry Monday Adeh and his family, whose home was burnt down by Fulani militants in Nigeria. Thank God that Release International partners were able to rebuild their house.
Pray that God will sustain Hao Ming, an elder of Early Rain Qingcaodi Church in Deyang city, who was recently charged with fraud. He has been detained in China since late-2021.
Praise God for the witness of Early Rain Covenant Church members in Chengdu, Sichuan province, China. They provided quilts and winter clothes for guards keeping watch over the home of their preacher Dai Zhichao.
Lin Xuesui was arrested in Sichuan province, China in 2022 and accused of involvement in ‘illegal gatherings’, apparently in connection with his ministry work there. Thank God he was released on bail in January: pray charges will be dropped.
Thank God that elderly Sun Jinhuan was able to visit her son Pastor John Cao in prison in Yunnan province, China for the first time in three years. He is serving seven years for ‘illegal border crossing’ into Myanmar.
Give thanks that after nearly a 4 year journey for religious freedom the Shenzhen Reformed Holy ‘Mayflower’ Church have settled in Dallas, Texas, USA.
Forgiving Father, we pray that You will give Your persecuted children in Nigeria the grace to forgive their enemies. Humanly speaking this seems impossible. The scale of hurt and loss is vast. But the gospel calls us to forgive as we have been forgiven and we pray You will enable them to do this.
