The Lord has promised, "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."
Many Christians living in ongoing situations of discrimination and persecution are weary and faint, worn down by the year-in, year-out struggle to survive and the frustration of the injustices they suffer.
Help them to find strength and hope in God by praying for them, with us, daily.
Join with us daily in praying for the persecuted church around the world.

Christians in Karnataka state, India, often face great hostility from Hindu extremists. A Christian man named Somasherkarwas was attacked on 3 August by militant Hindus, who threatened him and his wife and falsely accused them of forcibly converting people. Then the Rev. Paramajyothi was dragged out of his church building by Hindu ultranationalists on 11 August. The attackers stripped and beat the pastor, causing him several injuries. On 18 August, a group of Hindu extremists stormed the home of Ms Doddamma, another Christian; when she and her daughter refused to return to Hinduism, the assailants violently beat them and destroyed their home. Ask the Lord to heal the mental and physical wounds that our brothers and sisters suffered in these brutal attacks and to protect them from further violence.
