Pray for Kurdish Christians in Turkey

[286] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Kurdish Christians.

Kurdish Christians and other believers living in southeastern Turkey face many difficulties because of war and persecution. Many are from Muslim backgrounds and have faced rejection from their families. Despite the risks, the Christians continue to meet on a regular basis to openly encourage one another through Bible lessons and public prayer. Pray for their continued boldness as they fellowship with one another and share the gospel with others.
