Psalm 79:26: "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
*INDIA - In the recent state elections, 3 states have defeated the governing Hindu nationalist BJP. This party is focused on converting all Indians to Hinduism, declaring that to be Indian is to be Hindu. Continue to pray for Indian Christians as they deal with an aggressive Hindu nationalist party that holds political power in most of India.

Pray for JERUSALEM
Ps 147:12 - "Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem; Praise your God, O Zion"
The scriptures enjoin us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This week, set aside a few moments to pray for the people of Israel:
"Heavenly Father, You are Mighty and You are Holy, worthy of all our praises. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for your continuing watchful care over your people Israel. May those who love you be blessed & may those who do not know you yet open their hearts to you.  In Jesus' precious and mighty name, I pray. Amen."

This is the plea of persecuted Christians around the world. Today around the world over 200 million are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. Each year, Canadians join with Christians in over 130 countries to stand in prayer with our suffering sisters and brothers for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).

Persecuted Church – Did you know?

An estimated 100 million Christians are murdered, assaulted, raped, tortured, beaten, abducted, forced to flee as internal, and external refugees.
Many Christians are forced to be secret believers, unable to declare their faith openly, and cannot get help from churches because their presence will jeopardize the safety of churches.
Persecution is growing and expanding in Africa, Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, Russia, Mexico, Venezuela and Peru.
Christian radio stations like Trans World Radio, HCJB Global Radio, and Far Eastern Broadcasting Association beam into persecuting areas to encourage secret believers.
Persecuted Christians face job discrimination, and lose educational opportunities.
