Challenge to Pray for Persecuted

Open Doors USA is challenging Christians to pray for the persecuted Church throughout the year via its World Watch List. The ministry lists 50 countries on its website that are most notorious for persecuting Christians and urges believers to pray for a country each week — even for just 5 minutes.

By signing up on their website, Open Doors USA will send subscribers a weekly email informing them of that week’s featured country. Further information about that nation may also be viewed at the site, including a list of specific prayer needs. Christians may simply pray for the country each day of the week, and then check their email the following week for a new nation to pray for. Nations on the list include China, Turkey, India and Cuba.

A special message from the publisher...

Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East. Many have been distributed and received with gladness. While we provide for the physical needs of the people, we seek to provide the eternal hope only found in Jesus Christ through the word of God. Would you join us by making a donation today to this important work? Please click here to send an audio Bible to a refugee family >>
