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 - Thursday 13 June 2013
Give thanks to the Lord that six Christian schools in Indonesia that were facing the threat of closure can now continue their work unhindered. The schools, in Blitar in East Java, received an injunction from the authorities at the end of 2012 that required them to provide Islamic courses and readings of the Quran for Muslim students by 19 January or be shut. The schools firmly resisted the threat, saying that parents were “fully cognisant of the fact that only the Christian religion is taught in these schools” when they registered their children. Praise the Lord that after three days of talks between local officials and Christian leaders, the order was rescinded. Pray that the schools will continue to be a safe environment where students of all religions can learn about the Christian faith.
