Praying for the Persecuted

Praying for the Persecuted

This Sunday, November 1, is the annual International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, a time to lift up to God the men and women around the world who are experiencing oppression or hate because of their religious beliefs.

With the rise in groups like ISIS, who have publicly and brutally killed groups of believers over the past year, these prayers are needed more than ever.

Let us all ask God for freedom for those held captive for their beliefs, protection for those who live in areas of the world hostile to people of faith, and for God’s mighty shalom, peace, to cover us all.
