Persecuted Church

persecuted-lg-correctIn an effort to keep the persecuted church in front of our people, the first Sunday of every month we'll feature a nation where the church endures persecution for the sake of Christ.

We encourage you to do one of two things:

  1. Incorporate that specific nation into your prayer time each month.
  2. Use the monthly prayer calendar from Open Doors USA which gives specific prayer requests for specific people groups/nations for a particular day or week.

This Month: Saudi Arabia

This month we'd like to encourage you to pray for the church in Saudi Arabia.  Here is a quote from Open Doors on the current situation in this country:

In addition to family pressures, Christian converts are also at high risk of Christian persecution in the community, including charges of apostasy punishable by a death sentence. However, in recent years no reported Saudi apostasy cases have resulted in the death penalty. Women who convert face specific risks. Legally, Muslim husbands can beat and divorce their wives if it’s discovered she has turned from Islam. Husbands can also take away her children and forbid her from seeing them. Consequently, Saudi converts, especially women, often keep their conversion secret and follow Jesus in isolation—forced to go through the motions of Muslim beliefs while holding tight to Jesus in their hearts..
