Prayer for persecuted People
This church has prayer concerns for persecuted people wherever they may be; people of all nationalities, people of any faith, or none.
We have recently been given an 'Amnesty Candle' by our Vicar, Revd Roni Goodman. The candle represents the suffering of persecuted people throughout the world, and is a focus for our prayer.
While the needs are great, we are not daunted, for this is God’s world.
So please join with us in prayer for those noted below. We welcome requests for persecuted people known to you.
We are currently focussing our prayers on Mercy - a 22 year old woman from Borneo state in North East Nigeria.
We thank God that Mercy is still alive, and for her willingness to talk about her experiences whilst imprisoned and tortured by Boko Haram.
Many other Christian women and girls have been taken from their towns and villages in Nigeria. They are made to watch multiple killings, forced into "marriage", and are compelled to convert to and follow Islam according to Boko Haram beliefs and rules.
Please join us in prayer:
We pray that Mercy, together with all those who are captured, kidnapped and taken from their homes in Nigeria, will remain strong, and that our Lord will fill them with his hope
We pray that all those being tortured and persecuted will know the Lord's presence, and will receive his comfort and support during their imprisonment and beyond...
We pray that the Holy Spirit will show all officials and rebels that the only path to a viable long-term future for themselves and their people lies in embracing true tolerance, justice, respect and mercy.
Meanwhile Christians in Iran continue to face arrest, serious charges, and long periods of detention. Over the Christmas 2015 period, 24 arrests were recorded. Eleven remain in prison. Iranian Christians have asked us to pray that:
Those arrested will know the Lord’s presence, comfort and support, and that the Lord will guide them during interrogation
The intimidation of Christians in Iran will not result in fear, but that faith may be strengthened and a clear witness might be maintained
All prisoners in Iran will be treated with respect and dignity, as being created in the image of God, and that those in prison on account of their faith in Jesus will be released soon.
All officials involved will love mercy, act justly, learn about Jesus, and choose to follow Him.
“Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
