Pakistan

Monaza is a mother of five children. Her husband is unable to work owing to poor health. To support her family, she had to get a job as a domestic worker, a dangerous position for a vulnerable Christian woman in Pakistan.

Barnabas Fund has been working in Pakistan to help change lives of impoverished Christian families by providing them with monthly food parcels. This allows the families to use their meagre income to send their children to school, thus breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. They can also meet other needs. Monaza can now buy medicine for her husband.

Iraq

Our brothers and sisters in Iraq have become the target of threats, bombings, kidnapping, rape and murder. As Muslim extremists attempt to “cleanse” the country of Christians, thousands of families have fled their homes for relatively stable parts of northern Iraq and to the nearby countries of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

Egypt

The Christian community of Egypt has become increasingly needy over recent decades, and many Christian families live in severe poverty. Some of Egypt’s poorest Christians earn a living from collecting, sorting and reprocessing garbage in Cairo. Some children do not even know what an egg is.

Many Christian families in Africa, Asia and the Middle East go to bed hungry.

Poverty and discrimination can mean that Christian families suffer hunger more intensely than other sections of the population. Others become destitute when they have to flee from natural disaster or anti-Christian violence.

Some examples

  • Destitute Iraqi Christian refugees have left their homes and jobs as they flee anti-Christian violence
  • Christian families in Egypt, Pakistan and the Holy Land impoverished through discrimination
  • Christians in Zimbabwe are suffering under massive inflation and the destruction of the country’s agricultural sector
  • Christians in other parts of Africa are affected by drought and famine

Around 75,000 Christians received feeding supplies through Barnabas Fund between July 2010 and June 2011. But the need continues...

    • Continue to remember Pastor Tandin Wangyal, who is serving a prison sentence of almost four years in the small nation of Bhutan, only because he received funds from outside the country to help support his ministry. Ask God to sustain our brother at this time, so that he will draw comfort from God’s grace. Pray that his faith will not fail. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 5 hours ago

    • Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for freedom for the thousands of Eritrean Christian refugees who have fled from escalating anti-Christian persecution in their home country, and are being detained in prisons in Egypt. You said that You had been sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and to set the oppressed free. We especially ask your healing for women and men who have been raped in prison, and for your grace for those who have been kept chained for months, suffering hunger, torture and abuse. Please free these faithful ones, who suffer for Your Name. (Luke 4:18,21) Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, despite the apparent desire of jihadists to wipe it out. Most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes, after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Pray for their protection.

    • Continue to pray for church leaders in Christian-majority Burundi that they may have wisdom in responding to the unfamiliar situation of political restriction by their own government. A new law passed in August requires each church to have at least 500 members and a proper building; congregations were given a year to comply. Pray that religious liberty will be maintained in Burundi, both for Christians and for the small minorities who follow other religions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to you for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Shani, in Borno state, until their town was raided by Boko Haram on 29 November. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.
