Watch Focus - Persecuted Church
We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians. We pray for God’s mercy and protection for those suffering, and bind back these evil antichrist forces. We bless our suffering brothers and sisters in Christ. Give them angelic protection. We ask for revival with signs and wonders confirming the Lordship of Christ in these nations. May this persecution be exposed to the global media. We pray that the powers who desire to see Christianity erased will be defeated and that a mighty wave of revival glory will come to these nations.

Hebrews 11:36-39, “Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented— of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth. And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise,”
