Pray as a Church

Resources to help your church pray for our brothers and sisters

“From our youngest children through to our old brothers and sisters, everyone knows the power of prayer…”

Pastor Timothy is a church leader in China. Now in his seventies, he has lived through many times of persecution.

Prayer is the life-blood of the persecuted church. “It doesn’t matter what we are facing, or what we have been accused of, we all pray," says Pastor Timothy. "Everyone knows that as soon as persecution comes, we first drop to the ground and pray.”

“Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray” (James 5:13).

To pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters is to rediscover power and privilege of prayer.

Book a speaker
