5 Ways We Can Pray for the Persecuted Church | The Rebelution

In America, we’re often sheltered from all the trials and persecutions Christians endure in foreign countries.

During a recent church service, I watched a video about the sufferings and persecutions of Christians. It broke my heart. Sure, I knew Christians suffered in foreign countries, but I never fully realized how much they went through until I watched this video. They refused to deny their faith, giving up their own comfort for the sake of the gospel.

In Pakistan, Christians are treated as second-class citizens, obligated to serve Muslims. Every day, they are terrified for their lives. They could be arrested, thrown in prison, or even killed.

For sixteen years in a row, North Korea has been at the top of fifty countries ranked as the worst place for Christian persecution (according to Open Doors USA). Christians are beheaded, killed, imprisoned, or forced into labor at concentration camps.

Christians go through so many hardships in these countries. After becoming more aware of this, I wanted to help them—somehow. I’ve realized that one crucial way to help them is to pray for them.

Here are five ways you and I can earnestly pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ.
