PERSECUTED CHURCH

Check www.persecution.net for weekly updates of ‘The Persecution & Prayer Alert – The Voice of the Martyrs’.

PRAYER WARRIORS NETWORK – Art & Antonia W (Monthly updates available on Mission Board in foyer.)
"When I (Nehemiah) heard these things (Jerusalem in ruins) I wept and prayed before the God of heaven." - Nehemiah 1:4
     *HIDALGO STATE, MEXICO - C. and J. have launched a legal case against a legal official who ordered their eviction because they refused to deny their Christian faith. They have been pressured to drop the charges by the community. If the Christian cousins win their case, this could be a very significant ruling for persecuted Christians in Mexico. Pray the Lord will strengthen the cousins in their legal battle.

This is the plea of persecuted Christians around the world. Today around the world over 200 million are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. Each year, Canadians join with Christians in over 130 countries to stand in prayer with our suffering sisters and brothers for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).

Persecuted Church – Did you know?

An estimated 100 million Christians are murdered, assaulted, raped, tortured, beaten, abducted, forced to flee as internal, and external refugees.
Many Christians are forced to be secret believers, unable to declare their faith openly, and cannot get help from churches because their presence will jeopardize the safety of churches.
Persecution is growing and expanding in Africa, Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, Russia, Mexico, Venezuela and Peru.
Christian radio stations like Trans World Radio, HCJB Global Radio, and Far Eastern Broadcasting Association beam into persecuting areas to encourage secret believers.
Persecuted Christians face job discrimination, and lose educational opportunities.
