Pray for Pastors and Other Christian Workers as Persecution Increases

[262] prayers in [23] nations have been posted for Pastors.

Pastors and other Christian workers face increasing persecution in this Muslim-majority nation. At the request of local Christian leaders, VOM sponsored 12 conferences throughout Niger in June, providing 120 churches with training and resources to help them respond to persecution and spread the gospel. Please pray for these pastors and Christian workers as they continue to plant churches, evangelize and educate Christians on how to live as Christ followers in an Islamic society.
