Brother Andrew of the Open Doors, ministry is requesting prayers for their “Global Summer Offensive Project.” In 1955, God pointed him to Revelation 3:2… to “strengthen what remains and is at the point of death.” This call still holds true today. Those “at the point of death” are often the small remnants of the church, believers who live in places of overwhelming spiritual darkness. And the Enemy wants nothing more than to wipe them out. To snuff out the light of the Gospel so it will not shine in the darkness. To keep God’s Kingdom from advancing. This is why they are asking for your prayer support, and why it is so critical, because of what they are doing, as you pray for the following:

  • Covert operations to deliver Bibles into places like the Muslim world.
  • Support teams positioned in deep cover.
  • Safe houses that offer refuge to Muslim-background believers.
  • Supporting believers imprisoned for Christ, along with their families.

The greatest privilege we have is prayer. It is no wonder our suffering brothers and sisters ask first for our prayers to remain strong in advancing the kingdom where faith costs the most.

Over 100 million Christians around the world are routinely persecuted for their faith. Isolated and rejected because of their faith, they suffer injustice, often to the point of death.

Persecuted Christians want to do more than survive the spiritual battle; they want to advance the kingdom. But they need the support of the body of Christ to remain in the fight.

Open Doors, USA, is inviting you to join them in prayer through their 2010 Global Summer Offensive, for persecuted Christians throughout the world.

They share some of the situations Christians face in these countries and the ways you can begin to pray:

  • In Saudi Arabia, converting from Islam earns the death penalty. Pray for those who are facing a life or death decision, that they would find strength and wisdom to follow God.
  • 11 Christians were killed in Somalia by extremist groups in 2009. Pray that God would break the cycle of violence in this country and bring healing to the families and communities grieving their loss.
  • Though it is ranked 12 on the 2010 World Watch List, Bhutan’s current Prime Minister has promised to protect religious liberty. Pray for his courage in dealing with opposition.

One of the first things that persecuted Christians ask for is prayer. To help guide and inspire your prayers throughout the Summer Offensive, Open Door, USA is offering the World Watch Prayer Guide free of charge. To receive the guide, more information, or to let them know you are praying, contacting them at: opendoorsusa.org.

After the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989, many student leaders lost hope. Some suffered extreme physical abuse, forced exile, and personal pain; others saw their families suffer for their involvement in the movement. On June 3, the eve of the 21st anniversary of Tiananmen Square, Chai Ling, once the No. 4 most wanted Tiananmen student leader and now successful entrepreneur and mother, Bob Fu, president of ChinaAid, and U.S. Army Chaplain Capt. Xiong Yan, and three former student leaders, will join together to renew their hope and love for the Chinese people with “Prayers for China,” at The Falls Church in VA, near Washington, D.C. The bilingual prayer service, co- hosted by ChinaAid and All Girls Allowed, will also focus on women and children who have suffered under China’s One Child Policy and the continued persecution of independent Christian house churches in China. Although many may not be able to attend the event, you are encouraged to join in prayer for our brothers and sisters in China. Pray for the ministries of ChinaAid, and All Girls Allowed and their “Prayers for China.”
