Prayers from God's people
Father, thank you that your strength is in these persecuted believers. They are so strong in you. Help those of us, who are not persecuted to this degree, to remain faithful to you in our relatively easy lives. Place on our hearts ways that you want us to share that which you have entrusted to us; and give us ears to hear and obedient hearts. Show yourself real and sufficient to these heroes of the faith.
In Christ's name.
Father, I come to You on behalf of my dear sister Leah Sharibu who was abducted by Boko Haram and continues to be held captive because she is unwilling to renounce her faith in her Lord Jesus. I bless Your name for her faithfulness and the courage You have given her. Cause the eyes of her spirit to be unveiled to see Your glory and the hope that is stored up in heaven for her. I ask you to strengthen and preserve her whole family and in your mercy bring them together again. I ask you to move the heart and hand of President Buhari to regard her with compassion and to act decisively to see her set free. I ask you to bring the leaders of Boko Haram to repentance leading to salvation. In Jesus' name I pray.
Father, I cry out to you for my injured brother Vikram John in Karachi, Pakistan. I ask you to pour out courage on him by your Holy Spirit. Unveil the eyes of his heart to see the hope to which you have called him, the riches of the glorious inheritance that he has in You, and your incomparable power on his behalf - the power that raised Christ from the dead. I ask you to fill him and his whole family with fresh hope and courage. I ask you to stretch out your mighty hand and heal him. I cry out to you for mercy for his attackers and ask you to grant them full repentance leading to salvation in Jesus' mighty and holy name. Amen.
I pray for pastor Moreen Sanyu and the the Greater Love Church near Kampala, Uganda, in the wake of the vicious attacks that have so intimidated her church members that they have stopped attending. Lord, we give thanks for your power and love displayed through the many healing miracles that you have done through the faith of this woman of God. May she not draw back from You but be greatly encouraged by Your love for her and your delight in her. I ask You to give her great wisdom and godly strategy for this season. I ask you to strengthen and protect the faith of all those who have been drawn to You through her ministry, and cause them not to lose heart but to be greatly encouraged as they see their sister continuing to press in to You. Send your mighty angels to fight for them. I pray these things in Jesus' name.
Father God in Jesus Mighty Name I call upon Your Holy Name. You are the "Great I Am" the God who fails not. You are the one who promised that when we call Your Name You will hear us and answer our prayers according to Your will. I am praying for the people who are facing great opposition due to their faith in Jesus Christ. You promised because of the elected ones will shorten the evil days. I pray that You will protect those people who are going through tribulation and suffering because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray that they will not drift away due to the threat and torture. I ask You to protect them and hide them under the shadow of Your wings through Christ our Lord Amen
Father God, I want to lift up Leah Sharibu to Your Throne of Grace, & ask that you bring about her return to her family. Thank You that she is still alive. What horrors she has been through. It seems enough. You have protected & saved her for a purpose. But not my will, let Your Will be done.
Our Heavenly Father: I come before your throne of mercy and grace with the concerns of your child, my sister in The Lord Leah Sharibu. Father, I pray that you will strengthen Leah in her inner being. May she sense your presence with her every minute of the day. I pray that her faith in You Lord will grow stronger and deeper with each day she is in captivity. Keep holding on my dear sister - Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30: 5b) Leah, your morning is coming soon.
Dear God, please bless Pastor Moreen Sanyo and all Christians in Uganda with the faith of Jesus Christ to courageously face their Christian walk. Protect them from Muslim attacks and lead their persecutors to your real truth so that they renounce their sinful ways.
Jesus, You are the ultimate example of perseverance. We lift up to you our sister Moreen Sanyu in Uganda and her congregation. We pray that they might continue firm in their faith in You and in their ministry to local Muslims. We pray that nothing would come destroy his congregation, but that on the contrary, it might be stronger than ever. We pray that You would place Your mighty hand of protection on them so that further attacks may cease. Please come erase fear from their hearts and replace it by Your peace, hope, joy, and love. May these Christians be an inspiration to us as we face our daily challenges and oppositions to our faith. Thank You for always being with us!
Dear God our heavenly Father,
We uplift to you the people of Myannmar for the release of Your mercy & grace to strengthen those in desperate situations as they continue to work for the misplaced & persecuted. May Your unfailing love continue to work in the lives of those who are helping them resolve the problems in that country. And may the Gospel truth be preached to all in that country. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.
Pastor Sanyu in Uganda
Heavenly Father, thank you for protecting Pastor Sanyu from lasting effects from the rock that hit her. Thank you for continuing to give her courage and for her desire to reach her neighbours with your love. Guide her and her church council as they look for a new location. Help them to fully forgive those who attacked them, and give them passion and creative ideas to continue to reach out to the community in the neighbourhood they have left. Bring those who have thrown the rocks to repentance and give them dreams to let them know that you are their only Saviour. In Jesus’ Name! Amen.

Pastor Baizu and Christians in Nepal.
Lord, our heavenly father. We thank you for the blessing of Pastor Baizu. Bring complete and miraculous healing on his injuries, specifically injuries of his head brought on by assault. Give him strength and courage to carry on your work as well as forgiveness and love for his enemies for we love the sinner but hate the sin. It is through your incomparable love for all through Jesus Christ that souls are won through the gospel for your glory! AMEN
(For schoolgirl Leah in Nigeria)
Heavenly Father, protect, comfort and strengthen your precious daughter Leah who is Your faithful witness. Change the hearts of stone to hearts of flesh those who are holding her for not renouncing her faith, and that they may come to know You Lord through her witness. May Leah soon be set free to the glory of Your Name.
Praying for all the persecuted Christians around the world, that God's Favour may accompany them wherever they go to spread the Good News of the Lord, who is returning soon!... Praying also for all the lost souls, especially those living in Islamic countries, that they may seek and find the Lord, as these Bible verses suggest: "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you"(Matthew 7:7) ; "I sought the LORD, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears" (Psalms 34:4) ; "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart"(Jeremiah 29:13) ; "Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon"(Isaiah 55:6-7). May God bless & preserve the lives of all the persecuted Christians around the world...
Father God in heaven,
Please forgive my sin and those who have sinned against me. To be persecuted and falsely accused is beyond my comprehension and it seems to my human eyes so unfair. I believe that You know everyone, every hair, when they sit and rise and every thought and intent for nothing is hidden from You.
I pray that Your glory is known and that You would comfort our brothers and sisters as You comforted Paul and that they be filled with songs and joy and Your peace that surpasses all understanding.
Please allow them to be treated well while in captivity and please Lord harden not their persecutor's hearts and let them let Your people go.
Father I come to you and ask that you would protect our brothers and sisters in India. I ask Father that they would be supernaturally protected and every need be supplied. As they have a strong faith in you I would ask that their faith grow stronger day by day and they would not be weary. I pray for incredible and supernatural peace to flood their souls. Thank you Father for hearing and answering our prayers.
Lord I pray for the struggling congregations in India, for the Christians that are pressured continually to turn back to be Muslims, and all of our brothers and sisters that are in pain or suffering for doing what is right and following You. As a body we share this and pray for strength and provision for their needs. We believe that You are there with them. Amen
Father God, thank you that You know and see everyone who is persecuted and being hurt, because of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Thank you that You will strengthen them to stand till they are free or go Home.
Bless their families with peace to know that You are their Stronghold and Security. You will provide their daily bread as You know what they need daily. Strengthen their hearts not to give up till the end.
In Jesus mighty name alone, amen
A prayer for John Cao. Thank you God for John. I know you carry him close to your heart. Please let him know how much you love him each minute of every day. Comfort him and encourage Him and give him all He needs. Please look after his wife and children and help them to stay true to Jesus in His precious love. Jeni
Dear Father in heaven please be very close to John Cao and give him your peace joy and hope. Grant him confidence in you and please may you set him free soon. Give him every assurance that he needs, what ever that may be. You know we are frail people but our hope is in You.
Please grant his family Your joy and peace also. Amen
