Mid-Year Prayer | Christians Facing Urgent Need
We’re halfway through 2020, a year likely very different than we imagined. As persecution rises around the world, this year has been especially tough due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19.
Not only does this affect our persecuted brothers and sisters, many of whom live in countries where Christians are denied emergency relief, but it also impacts how much we have available to send to them.
That’s why our Mid-Year Appeal is going to where the need is the greatest.
But this appeal is about more than just supporting persecuted Christians financially; it is a reminder that we are called to “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” (Colossians 4:2)
We don’t have to tell you, our faithful prayer family, that it’s been a tough year for the persecuted church.
You’ve prayed with Yemen, and those facing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. You’ve stood with those facing natural disasters and a global pandemic. You’ve prayed with churches in Sudan who have lost their meeting place to extremist attacks.
Persecution is rising around the world, and we need to support those suffering for their faith in Jesus more than ever.
Your prayers make a huge difference for the body of Christ around the world. We are so thankful for the way that you faithfully serve the persecuted church and our ministry.
Will you commit to praying for Christians suffering for their faith in Jesus, and for our Mid-Year Appeal?
- Pray For Christians Facing Urgent Need:
- Praise God for faithful supporters of this ministry (like you!) and the ways that they help people follow Jesus all over the world.
- Pray that Christians facing uncertainty and urgent need will be dependent on God in all things.
- Pray that those who are served by our projects will be encouraged to stand strong in their faith and proclaim Jesus’ name.
