Pray for Persecuted Believers Around the World
Christian Aid Mission is asking believers to pray for our brothers and sisters around the globe who face harassment, imprisonment, and even death because of their faith in Jesus Christ.
While persecution is an ongoing reality in many parts of the world, the problem has received greater attention this year from secular media who reported malicious attacks on Christians in places like Egypt, Pakistan, and Nigeria.
The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is designated for Sunday, November 3. The annual initiative encourages Christians to set aside time to remember and pray for fellow believers who endure great adversity for the sake of the gospel.
Indigenous ministries assisted by Christian Aid Mission work on the frontlines in many of these difficult and dangerous areas. Some of their missionaries have been directly impacted by acts of violence and, in some instances, gave the ultimate sacrifice so that they may “finish [their] race with joy, and the ministry which [they] received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20: 24b, NKJV).
