The first request of persecuted Christians is always, “Please pray for us!” Your prayers can have a powerful impact in the lives of persecuted Christians, and the primary way we in New Zealand can stand with and support our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ.

Make prayer for the persecuted church a regular part of your personal prayer life. Speak up for persecuted Christians and encourage your church to commit to pray for the persecuted around the world.
