Weekly Watch Focus: God's Supernatural Shield Over Persecuted Christians Worldwide

FRIDAY, February 17, 2017—The persecution of Christians continues to increase across the world, especially in the Middle East and in Africa. In 2016, the violent killing of Christians increased by 62% in Nigeria alone, where many Christians have been martyred and churches burned. The U.S. Government and other Western leaders have largely remained silent as this religious cleansing of Christians continues in the Islamic world. Pray that with the installation of President Trump on January 20, 2017, there will be a change in the U.S. government—with more help released for persecuted Christians worldwide. Praise God for the Hungarian government who have expressed major commitment to combat persecution of Christians globally. May many other governments join them in this resolve.

Please pray for our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters. Pray for angelic protection. Pray for the thousands of displaced Christians and other ethnic groups sheltering in refugee camps. Pray for those who give assistance and care in these refugee centers. Pray for the missionaries, pastors, priests and families of these leaders who are working to save, comfort, and shepherd their flock in these dangerous circumstances. Pray for the many Christians who are in prison for their faith. Ask that once again God will stretch forth His hand to heal and deliver these nations from the oppressor.

Matt. 5:10-12, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Rev. 6:9-10, “When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.

Ps. 27:2-5, “When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
