March 2019 – The primary request of persecuted Christians around the world is not for money or protection from those who persecute them. Instead, they first ask for prayer. Voice of the Martyrs urges Christians to pray that the persecuted will:
1. Sense God’s presence.
2. See God open doors for them to witness for Him.
3. Be able to forgive and love their persecutors.
4. Experience the joy of the Lord, even amid suffering.
5. Know you and other Christians are praying for them.
Voice of the Martyrs (persecution.com) has many other tools to help guide specific prayers for the persecuted church.
