Pray for Families Shunned Because of Their Christian Faith

[252] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Shunned Christian Families.

During a village meeting on Feb. 28, a group of Christians and their pastor were ordered to give up their Christian faith or be “socially excommunicated” by the community. The six Christian families refused to give up their faith in Jesus. Since the meeting, the believers have been shunned by their neighbors, and their daily encounters with other villagers have become increasingly tense. Please pray that they will remain strong in faith and will grow closer to Jesus during this ordeal. Pray that others in the community will be drawn to Christ after witnessing these believers’ bold faith.

  • Jesus, thank you that these believers are blessed because they are persecuted and rejected for your name's sake. May they feel and experience that blessing! Give them grace to bear the isolation, and establish such unity, peace, and love between these six families that everyone around them knows they are your people and want to become yours, too!
