Pray for Believers in Turkey During the Prolonged State of Emergency

[224] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Beleivers in Turkey.

The Turkish government has extended its state of emergency for an additional 90 days, raising concerns of citizens throughout the country. The state of emergency was ordered in July, after 270 people were killed in a failed coup attempt. Police officers stand guard during church services for the protection of worshipers, but many believers are intimidated by their presence and church attendance has dropped. The state of emergency also prevents church leaders from reaching out to people in the streets as they once did. Please pray that the Lord will strengthen churches and the faith of church leaders in Turkey.

  • Malachi 3:17 They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. 18 Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him.
