What to Pray for Persecuted Christians…

Where do you even start praying for those going through intense persecution?
Here are 5 great inspirations from the Bible to teach us how and what to pray.

  • For their physical protection and deliverance.
    (Matt 26:39, Acts 12:5, Philip 1:19, Phil 22, Rom 15:30-31)
  • That they will endure.
    (Heb 10:36)
  • That they will love their enemies.
    (Luke 6:27-31)
  • That they will see God’s grace as sufficient and God’s power perfected in their weakness.
    (2 Corinth 12:9-10)
  • That they would learn to completely trust in God.
    (2 Corinth 1:8-9)


If you would like to be fully equipped to pray for the persecuted, we have a number of prayer resources. This includes prayer updates, resources and links to prayer groups.
