PERSECUTED CHURCH

Check www.persecution.net for weekly updates of ‘The Persecution & Prayer Alert – The Voice of the Martyrs’.

PRAYER WARRIORS NETWORK – Art & Antonia W (Monthly updates are available on Mission Board in foyer.)
*Psalm 79:26: "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
*UPDATE: RIO TERCERO, ARGENTINA - On August 2nd, this church went to court to have a ruling to order the judge to stop delaying their case. Unfortunately, the hearing dismissed the church’s case as not having merit. This makes it harder for the church to get justice. Pray for strength for this church to continue its fight for the right to do ministry without hindrance.

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.

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.
