News and Prayer for the Persecuted

The Rise of Anti-Christianity in the West
5/12/2014 United States (Christian Post) 
"There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its biblical heartlands," said a report by Civitas about persecution of Christians in the Middle East. Evidence suggests there are some who want Christianity to vanish from the West. The Civitas report "highlights a fear among oppressive regimes that Christianity is a 'Western creed' which can be used to undermine them," according to the London Telegraph.

  • Pray our faithful God will increase in us and guide us through these trying times
  • Pray our Lord and savior will open the hearts and minds of Christian oppressors so they may be saved
  • Pray for all brothers and sisters in the U.S. and world-wide to keep their focus on the Lord for He is our strength and healer

5/12/2014 Pakistan (Pakistan Christian Post) 

According to Sharing Life Ministry Pakistan, a 11-year-old Christian girl, Maria Sarfraz, was abducted from the town of Distt, Sheikupora and raped multiple times during her three day ordeal. Like previous cases, the perpetrators of this crime are threatening violence against the Christian family in an attempt to keep them from getting justice. The rapists have demanded that the Christian family settle the matter out of court or else they will start a riot in town and burn down all the Christian homes. This case only continues to highlight the suffering of Christian in Pakistan.

  • Pray for the spiritual and physical healing of Maria Sarfraz
  • Pray Pakistan will not release these brutal men or tolerate any who commit these crimes
  • Pray for the strength, comfort and renewing of this family

  • Pray all who are searching for the children will be successful in bringing them home and their captors to justice

North Korean Government Blames Christian Missionaries For Internal Difficulties

North Korea has verbally retaliated against international criticism by accusing the U.S. of human rights abuses and Christian missionaries for human trafficking and terrorism in its country. "North Korea will seek sympathy from the global public by striking an anti-Christian chord. It may be the most important development regarding Christian ministry to North Korea in a decade." said Rev. Eric Foley of Seoul USA.

  • Pray for the peace, safety and strengthening of Christians in North Korea

Watch Out for Burma's Move to Restricting Interfaith Marriages Law
5/7/2014 Burma (AsiaNews)
97 Burma civil society organizations have condemned the proposal of a bill restricting interfaith marriages that may harm women's rights and religious freedom. Most citizens in Burma are Buddhist. Supported by Buddhist extremists and the President, the proposal would require Buddhist women to seek permission from their parents and the authorities before marrying outside Buddhist faith. Activists from a local Christian group expressed that the bill could harm religious freedom, especially for women.
  • Pray for the victory of this movement to keep equality and stop the intolerance against Christians and the Burmese people
  • Pray for the wisdom of the local Christian activists 
  • Pray for the salvation of the Buddhist extremists and President Sein
