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.
Daily Prayer - Sunday 27 January 2013
Pray for Christian children in Bangladesh who have been taken from their families by deceit and sold to Islamic schools, where they are physically abused and pressured to convert to Islam. Poor tribal Christian families are convinced by intermediaries to send their children to “boarding schools”, where they will be fed and educated for a fee. The intermediaries pocket the families’ money and then sell the children to the schools. The children have to endure hours of Arabic lessons and Quran readings, and those who miss Islamic prayers or refuse to take part in a lesson are subjected to violence. Pray that the Lord will enable them to persevere in their Christian faith, and that they may soon be set free.
