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 the southern Philippines are facing second-class status in their homeland. The national government has made an agreement with a Muslim separatist group to create an autonomous area called “Bangsamoro”, where aspects of sharia law will be enforced. Christians are concerned that this will become an Islamic sub-state, and although the agreement states that sharia will not be applied to them, its imposition is likely to result in discrimination and restrictions. When Christians objected to a similar agreement in 2008, the Islamist group responded with violence, killing around 400 Christians and displacing some 750,000. Pray for protection for our brothers and sisters at this uncertain time, and that their freedom and equality under the law will be preserved.
