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.

Give thanks to God that a church in Belarus has been given a last-minute reprieve from being forcibly evicted from its premises. New Life Pentecostal Church meets in a renovated cowshed on the outskirts of the capital, Minsk, and has been battling with the authorities for ten years to legalise its status as a place of worship. It was due to be evicted on 5 December, but the action was stopped after the district housing authority withdrew its demand. However, the church is expecting further difficulties, as the authorities seized the legal title to the building and land in 2006 and have not returned it. Pray that the congregation will be left in peace to worship the Lord without further harassment (2 Corinthians 1:10-11).
