10 Ways to Pray for our Persecuted Family

This is a list that I got in the mail yesterday from The Voice of the Martyrs organization. I am not sure why I get mail from them, or what the other paperwork said, but one thing I do know is that this top 10 list spoke to me. Take a look at the scriptures backing these statements, and learn a little more about prayer:


  1. Pray that persecuted believers will sense God’s presence

    HEBREWS 13:5

  2. Pray that they will feel connected to the greater Body of Christ
    1 CORINTHIANS 12:20, 26

  3. Pray that they will experience God’s comfort when their family members are killed, injured or imprisoned for their witness
    2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-5


  4. Pray that they will have more opportunities to share the gospel


  5. Pray for their boldness to make Christ known


  6. Pray that they will forgive and love their persecutors
    MATTHEW 5:44


  7. Pray that their ministry activities will remain undetected by authorities or others who wish to silence them
    ACTS 9:25


  8. Pray that they will rejoice in suffering
    ACTS 5:41


  9. Pray that they will be refreshed through God’s Word and grow in their faith
    EPHESIANS 6:17


  10. Pray that they will be strengthened through the prayers of fellow believers
    JUDE 1:20-25
