The Lord has promised, "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."
Many Christians living in ongoing situations of discrimination and persecution are weary and faint, worn down by the year-in, year-out struggle to survive and the frustration of the injustices they suffer.
Help them to find strength and hope in God by praying for them, with us, daily.
Join with us daily in praying for the persecuted church around the world.

Libya’s small Christian community, which is composed mostly of expatriates, is increasingly vulnerable as Islamic extremism grows in strength. On 25 September 2013, two Egyptian Christians living in Libya were killed by a group of Muslims after they refused to convert to Islam. Waleed Saad Shaker (25) and Nash’at Shenouda Ishaq (27) were surrounded by the assailants on a rural road in Derna district. The Muslims robbed and beat them and demanded that the Christians recite the shahada, the Islamic confession of faith. When the pair refused, the attackers tied them up and shot them. Praise God that Waleed and Nash’at remained faithful even to the point of death (Revelation 2:10), and pray that this will be a source of comfort to their loved ones.
