The Lord has promised, "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."
Many Christians living in ongoing situations of discrimination and persecution are weary and faint, worn down by the year-in, year-out struggle to survive and the frustration of the injustices they suffer.
Help them to find strength and hope in God by praying for them, with us, daily.
Join with us daily in praying for the persecuted church around the world.

We praise You, our Father, for the ministry of “Firuza”, as she bravely shares the Gospel in a restrictive Central Asian country in the face of opposition. We pray for the home groups and women’s ministries that she runs in her home city, and for her long-distance travel to witness to villagers in another area. We thank You that she has continued to share the Gospel with them despite their initial hostility and attempt to stone her, and that since then, three families and more than 20 individuals have come to faith. We praise You for Firuza’s fearless commitment to the Gospel and for all those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ as a result of her ministry. We ask You to bless her abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that she needs, she will abound in every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).
