A Call for Prayer

I have requested prayer previously for the following persecuted saints, and they still need prayer, so this is a reminder for some of you, friends, please keep praying.

LEAH SHARIBU 

Leah Sharibu, abducted at age 15

Leah Sharibu

Leah Sharibu was kidnapped with 110 other schoolgirls in Nigeria by the Muslim terrorist group Boko Haram on February 19, 2018. The terrorists killed five of those girls and released 104, once they renounced their Christian faith, but they are still holding Leah Sharibu, because she refuses to renounce her faith in Jesus.

*Six more Christian girls have been kidnapped in Nigeria by Boko Haram and they too need our urgent prayers daily.

YOUSEF NADARKHANI AND FAMILY.jpg

Pastor Nadarkhani and his family

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was previously arrested and sentenced to die for his Christian faith, “apostasy,” but after much prayer and public outcry, Nadarkhani was acquitted and released from prison, after having spent nearly three years in prison. Pastor Nadarkhani was arrested again on July 22, 2018. Iranian forces raided his home, beating him in front of his family, and they even tasered one of his young sons when he answered the door. Only a Muslim terrorist would taser a young boy, an innocent boy, who simply answered the door! We need another miracle for Pastor Nadarkhani. God delivered him before and He will deliver him again! We have to pray daily, saints.

PASTOR NERREN.jpg 

Pastor Nerren (left) and his family

Pastor Bryan Nerren

American Pastor Bryan Nerren is a Christian pastor who lives in Tennessee with his family. He was attending a Christian conference in India and was arrested after being asked if he was a Christian. He has been held in India because of his Christian faith since October 5, 2019. He was not allowed any visitation by his attorney, or the US Consulate. His passport was confiscated and India refuses to allow him to return home to his family. Pastor Nerren has a special needs daughter and his family is devastated. India is listed as the #10 nation on the Open Doors World Watch List for Christian Persecution.

PASTOR JOHN CAO 

Pastor John Cao

Pastor John Cao, a US citizen from North Carolina, was doing charitable work in China, when he was arrested and sentenced to seven years prison for his Christian faith. Pastor Cao’s health is deteriorating and he has already lost at least 50 pounds; he could potentially die in China’s harsh prison environment, unless God delivers him. He shares a cell with 12 inmates which is furnished with only one bed!

BOB LEVINSON 

Bob (Robert) Levinson

Bob Levinson was arrested in Iran in 2007 and has been held by the terrorist regime since that time. He is an American citizen, reportedly a former CIA agent, and he was taken into custody while working as a private investigator. Iranian officials interrogated Levinson in 2007, but have since denied knowing his whereabouts. I am not aware of Bob Levinson’s religion/faith, but he and his family also need our prayers.

All of these desperately need our prayers; please pray for them daily.

The Word of God tells us,

“All these are the beginning of sorrows; then they shall deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you, and you shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:8-9

“There should be no schism in the body (body of Christ, the Church), but the members should have the same care for one another. And whether one member suffers, all members suffer with him; or if one member is honored, all members rejoice with him. Now you are the body of Christ and members in particular” 1 Corinthians 12:25-27

We are all very busy, some more than others, and if you can’t pray daily for all of these due to time constraints, please enter them on a prayer list, or in your Prayer Book, and lay hands on the prayers and pray one prayer over them collectively (this is what I have to do due to the volume of prayer requests I have received). God understands our time limitations and He will still honor those prayers.

God always answers our prayers. He has already delivered many saints in answer to our prayers:

Youcef Nadarkhani delivered from death row during his first incarceration in Iran: https://propheticnewsletter.yolasite.com/news/youcef-nadarkhani-released-from-prison-in-iran-

Asia Bibi released from death row in Pakistan: https://nowprophecy.wordpress.com/2018/10/31/breaking-news-asia-bibis-death-sentence-overturned-by-the-supreme-court/

Pastor Hassan Abduraheem released from Sudanese prison: https://propheticnewsletter.yolasite.com/news/pastors-arrested-and-held-in-sudan-and-turkey

Others we prayed for daily were also released:

Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit released from Gaza: https://propheticnewsletter.yolasite.com/news/gilad-shalit-is-home-

American Veteran Amir Hekmati released from Iranian prison: https://propheticnewsletter.yolasite.com/news/pastor-saeed-abedini-and-amir-hekmati-freed-from-iranian-prison-


God knows there are many more; but know for certain, after praying daily for these listed above, God delivered every one of them miraculously! Let us continue praying for those in prisons and those being held against their will because of their Christian faith, and we will see them released to their loved ones. Prayer changes things!

Jesus said,

“Again, I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth, as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven” Matthew 18:19

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a Christian law firm, has fought for the release of many persecuted Christians, and they are still fighting for the rights of Christians suffering persecution throughout the world.

In addition to your prayers, you can also help by supporting ACLJ at https://aclj.org

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior, unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate, having no conscience (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

“The Spirit and the bride say, Come; and let him who hears say, Come; and let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” Revelation 22:17

Breaking: Three American Christians Released from N Korean Prisons!

BREAKING: THREE AMERICAN CHRISTIANS RELEASED FROM N KOREAN PRISONS!

Early this morning, three American Christians were released from North Korean prisons, Kim Dong-chul, Kim Sang-duk (Tony Kim) and Kim Hak-song; and are returning to the United States with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo!

As President Donald Trump planned to meet North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un, he focused on gaining the release of the three persecuted Christians, Americans languishing in North Korean prisons simply for their Christian faith.

President Trump tweeted this morning:

TRUMPS TWEET

The three American Christians were released to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after his arrival in Pyongyang, North Korea, early this morning. He is also deserving of our gratitude for securing their release.

THANK YOU, GOD, FOR HEARING AND ANSWERING OUR MANY PRAYERS!

THANK YOU, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP!

This is a glorious victory for the three imprisoned Christians, who likely would have languished and died in prison had it not been for the God-ordained intervention by President Donald Trump! Their release is the answer to the many prayers of God’s saints going up daily for the three persecuted saints.

President Donald Trump has made every effort to see the American Christians released from the horrid conditions they suffered in North Korean prisons and those efforts paid off. President Trump keeps his promises and he has worked tirelessly for such causes since his inauguration.

God bless President Donald Trump!

The release of the three Christians from North Korea, the worst nation in the world for Christian persecution, is nothing short of a miracle. I posted requests for prayer for them on this and other websites and I have prayed daily for them, along with many other saints. God answers the prayers of His people!

We are so grateful to God for answering our prayers for these three persecuted saints, and God has been faithful to answer many other prayers, as documented below on an earlier report Overcomers By the Word of Our Testimony:

OVERCOMERS BY THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY

Throughout the years, on this and other websites, I have requested prayer for those in bonds. We often hear of prayer requests, and we pray, although less frequently do we hear about the answers to many of our prayers.

The Lord laid it on my heart to share the testimonies of these, whom the Lord has delivered from bonds, in direct answer to the prayers of the saints:

Gilad Shalit – Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Sergeant First Class abducted and taken prisoner by Hamas to Gaza 6/25/06; released by prisoner exchange – by the miracle-working hand of God 10/18/11!

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani – Christian pastor arrested in Iran 10/2009; sentenced to death by hanging for “apostasy” (for his Christian faith) 11/13/10; released by the miracle-working hand of God 9/8/12!

Meriam Ibrahim – Christian mother arrested in Sudan 8/2013; sentenced to 100 lashes and sentenced to death by hanging for “apostasy” (because of her Christian faith) 5/15/14; released 6/24/14; rearrested 6/24/14; released (second and final time) by the miracle-working hand of God 6/26/14!

Pastor Saeed Abedini – American Christian pastor arrested in Iran 7/2012; sentenced to eight years for creating Christian churches and “compromising national security” on 1/27/13; released after three years by the miracle-working hand of God 1/16/16!

Amir Hekmati – American Veteran arrested in Iran 8/2011 for allegedly spying for the CIA; sentenced to death 1/9/12; sentence overturned 3/5/12; later sentenced to 10 years; released by the miracle-working hand of God 1/16/16!

Pastors Michael Ruot and Peter Reith – Christian pastors arrested (Michael on 12/14/14; Peter on 1/11/15) in Sudan for “blasphemy;” released by the miracle-working hand of God 8/5/15!

Pastor Kuwa Shamal – Christian pastor arrested in Sudan for his faith 12/18/15; released 12/21/15; rearrested 5/24/16; released by the miracle-working hand of God 1/2/17!

To God be all the glory for the release of these!

The Word of God says,

“They overcame by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death” Revelation 12:11.

I published a call to prayer on 12/10/15 for the release of Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini, American Veteran Amir Hekmati, American Bob Levinson and Christian mother Asia Bibi. After 37 days, on 1/16/16, Pastor Saeed Abedini and Amir Hekmati were released! Pastor Abedini had been in prison more than three years, and Amir Hekmati over four years. This demonstrates the power of the collective prayers of the saints! We need to continue praying for Asia Bibi and Bob Levinson!

The Word of God tells us,

“Confess your faults to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16.

“You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatsoever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you” John 15:16.

There are still those in bonds who need our continued prayers daily:

asia-bibi-sentenced-to-death
Asia Bibi – Christian mother arrested 6/2009 and sentenced to death by hanging in Pakistan for “apostasy.” *Asia Bibi’s appeal hearing has finally been granted. She needs our immediate fervent prayers now.
bob-levinson-4

Bob Levinson – American abducted in Iran 3/9/07.

pastor-hasaan-abduraheem

Pastor Hassan Abduraheem – Christian pastor arrested 12/18/15 in Sudan for his faith and faces the death penalty. *Update: Released! Thank God, praise God!

pastor-andrew-brunson

Pastor Andrew Brunson – Christian pastor arrested in Turkey 10/2016 for his faith (on trumped-up charges of “membership in an armed terrorist organization”).

We sometimes hear of the names and plights of others who need our prayers. When their names cross our path, we need to pray for them.

Yes, there are many, many others that need prayer, but God will give the names of those we do not hear about to other Christians who will pray for them.

How do we keep up with all of the prayer requests? Personally, I print the names and stories of many people I have prayed for at least once, then I place their prayer requests on my makeshift “altar” before God. I may not call their individual names out every day, but I pray over them collectively every day, laying my hands upon the requests. This is one method of prayer, but the important thing is to pray in the manner God leads you to pray.

Prayer changes things, friends!

When Herod put forth his hand to vex the church, he killed James, the brother of John. He proceeded further to kill Peter also and the Bible tells us,

“Peter, therefore, was kept in prison; but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him…And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him and a light shined in the prison and he smote Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly, and his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird yourself and bind on your sandals, and so he did. And he said unto him, Cast your garment about you and follow me. And he went out and followed him and did not know that it was true which was done by the angel, but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and second ward, they came to the iron gate that led unto the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and passed through one street and henceforth the angel departed from him” Acts 12:5,7-10.

If you believe in God, do not limit Him. Nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37).

“Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

Trump Meets Macron To Discuss Iran Nuke Deal

TRUMP MEETS MACRON TO DISCUSS IRAN NUKE DEAL

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania hosted a meeting at the White House with French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte today, Tuesday, April 24, 2018.

Presidents Trump and Macron discussed the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump has wanted to dissolve, saying the deal Obama made with Iran is “insane.”

Macron told the press today concerning the deal with Iran,

“I can say that we have had very frank discussions on that, just the two of us. We, therefore, wish from now on to work on a new deal with Iran,” reported AFP.

If President Trump proposes any new agreement with Iran, we need to pray he demands the return of Bob Levinson. 

Robert “Bob” Levinson was captured by the Iranian government on March 9, 2007. He was a private investigator at the time, and had previously worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Even though Iranian government officials deny knowing the whereabouts of Levinson, Iranian Press TV televised a statement only several weeks after he went missing, stating, Levinson was “in the hands of Iranian security forces since the early hours of March 9, and authorities are well on the way to finishing the procedural arrangements that could see him freed in a matter of days.”

On March 9, 2015, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) increased their reward from $1 million to up to $5 million for information regarding Levinson’s whereabouts.

Central Intelligence Agency, since Iranian television reported in 2007 that Levinson was held by their government, shouldn’t you have demanded Levinson’s release, instead of asking for information leading to his whereabouts? Does 2+2 = 4? Did all CIA staff fall out of a watermelon truck? Obama was president in 2015…

Other political hostages were released from Iran, as part of Obama’s nuclear deal; Bob Levinson was ignored, left behind, treated like trash.

There is something very strange about all of this. Iranian television said Bob Levinson was in government custody; Bush and Obama ignored the obvious and never demanded Levinson’s release; the CIA offered a big reward, knowing full well Levinson had been captured by Iranian security services.

I have been praying for years for Levinson’s release and that the secret behind his captivity be revealed. Please pray with me.

Jesus said,

“There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, neither hid that shall not be known” Luke 12:2.

Did Jesus lie?

What has been done against Bob Levinson will come to light, and George Bush won’t be able to hide it, neither will Obama, because God said so!

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.


During the persecutions of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in the valleys of Piedmont, during the Seventeenth Century, Judith Mandon, for refusing to change her religion and embrace popery, was fastened to a stake and sticks thrown at her from a distance. By this inhuman proceeding, the poor woman’s limbs were beat and mangled in a terrible manner, and her brains were at last dashed out.

Excerpts taken from Fox’s Book of Martyrs – Zondervan Publishing House (1926)

A few hundred years ago, Fox’s Book of Martyrs was chained to every pulpit, alongside the Holy Bible. I suppose people decided to turn their heads away from such violent crimes and become more “dignified.” We dishonor those who suffered by burying their testimonies and martyrdom. It also seems most churches today are too “dignified” for the Holy Spirit and fire, Who fell on the apostles of the early church (Acts 2)!

The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal torture and murders of Protestant Christians, who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, and prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such vile persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s, not that long ago. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4.

God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!

‘Those In Bonds’

TORTURED BEATEN ABUSED IN NORTH KOREA

‘THOSE IN BONDS’

The Word of God tells us that Christians will be hated in all nations during the last days. This prophecy has been fulfilled, even in the United States!

Jesus said,

“Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines and pestilences, and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven; but before all these, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake” Luke 21:11-12.

KIM DAVIS IN JAIL
Screen shot: YouTube.com – Kim Davis Rowan County Clerk

When Kim Davis, the Rowan County Clerk, Kentucky, refused to sign marriage licenses for homosexuals, she was arrested and tossed in jail. Who would have thought this could happen in America?

Homosexuals demand services from Christian business owners, such as the owners of bakeries, wedding facilities and bed and breakfast inns, who must refuse to serve them in the capacity they require, or defy God’s commandments and their Christian faith, because the Word of God tells us homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God,

“You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is an abomination” Leviticus 18:22.

When these business owners refused to provide services to accommodate homosexual activities, these homosexuals sued the Christian business owners for monetary gain.

Did you ever think a “Christian nation” would fall so low into the gutter, where Christians would not be allowed to keep the tenets of their faith without being sued for large sums of money, or even ending up in jail?

This is your last days “Land of the Free,” folks! It is only going to get worse, until the Lord returns to establish His righteous kingdom on this earth.

In the meantime, Christians all over the world are being persecuted, jailed and killed, and it is a sign of the last days, according to Bible prophecy.

Jesus also said,

“Then (in the last days) shall they deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you, and you shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:9.

Let’s not forget those who are in bonds:

“Remember those who are in bonds, as bound with them, and those who suffer adversity, as being yourselves also suffering” Hebrews 13:3.

ASIA BIBI 2
Screen shot: YouTube.com – Asia Bibi

Asia Bibi is a Pakistani mother of five, who has been in prison for more than eight years for her Christian faith. She has a death sentence hanging over her head, which is in the process of appeal, but most of Pakistan (96 percent Muslim) wants her to hang. Two politicians in Pakistan, who spoke against Bibi’s conviction, were assassinated. (Update: Asia Bibi has been set free! God answered her prayers and the many prayers of the saints throughout the world! Praise God Almighty! Thank you, President Trump!)

Three American Christians are imprisoned in North Korea, Kim Dong Chul (serving 10 years), Kim Sang-duk (arrested 4/22/17) and Kim Hak-song (arrested ~May 2017); all in prison for their Christian faith. (Update: Kim Dong Chul, Kim Sang-duk and Kim Hak-song have all been set free and brought back to the US! God answered their prayers and the many prayers of the saints throughout the world. President Trump called for their release and the North Korean tyrant let them go! This was nothing less than a miracle! Praise God Almighty! Thank you, President Trump!)

KIM HAK-SONG 

Screen shot: YouTube.com – Kim Hak-song

Kim Hak-song worked for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), a university founded by evangelical Christians in 2010. The university is funded by Christian churches in the United States and South Korea. Kim is a Christian missionary and US citizen. North Korean officials stated Kim was arrested for hostile acts against the country. Christianity is considered treasonous in North Korea.

KIM SANG-DUK 

Screen shot: YouTube.com – Kim Sang-duk (Tony Kim)

Kim Sang-duk (also known as Tony Kim), the chancellor of PUST, was arrested while trying to leave with his wife on a flight to China. Kim is a Christian and US citizen. North Korea has not released any details since his arrest on April 22, 2017.

KIM DONG CHULKIM DONG CHUL 1 

Screen shots: YouTube.com – Kim Dong Chul

Kim Dong Chul is an American businessman who was operating a business in the commerce area of North Korea, although he and his wife reside in China. Kim, who is a Christian, was detained in October 2015, and was sentenced to 10 years hard labor following a brief trial. Kim is a Christian. He was charged with espionage and subversion.

I am going to share the stories of two others who are being persecuted, who may, or may not be Christians, but they cannot be forgotten. 

BOB LEVINSON 

Screen shot: YouTube.com – Bob (Robert) Levinson

Bob (Robert) Levinson is an American businessman who was abducted in Iran on the Island of Kish in March 2007. Levinson’s family received a video of him in 2010. He pleaded for help from American politicians on the video, saying, “Please help me get home.”

Treasonous, stealthy Muslim, Barack Obama, did absolutely nothing to help Levinson, even while making a monumental deal with Iran to lift sanctions, which released billions of dollars to Iran, and which also allowed their production of nuclear power!

julian-assange-a-national-hero 

Screen shot: YouTube.com – Julian Assange

Julian Assange has taken asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the last five and a half years for exposing the crimes of politicians, specifically treasonous acts, and other crimes, including pedophilia.

Julian Assange is a HERO and should be thanked and rewarded greatly for exposing the vile crimes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and many others, all who should be criminally prosecuted, but their crimes are being ignored and they walk free!

In the meantime, Julian Assange is being hunted down like a dog!

This, friends, is our last days “Land of the Free!”

Please include these on your daily prayer lists and pray with me for their safe return home to their families. Let’s also pray for the salvation of Bob Levinson and Julian Assange, in the event they aren’t saved yet.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.


The Roman clergy complained to the archbishop of Turn that the Waldenses of the valleys of Piedmont here heretics for these reasons: 1) They did not believe in the doctrines of the Church of Rome. 2) They made no offerings or prayers for the dead. 3) They did not attend Catholic Mass. 4) They did not confess and receive absolution. 5) They did not believe in purgatory, or pay money to get the souls of their friends out of it. Upon these charges, the archbishop ordered a persecution to take place and many fell martyrs to the superstitious rage of the priests and monks. At Turin, one of the Protestants had his bowels torn out and put in a basin before his face. At Revel, Catelin Girard being at the stake, desired the executioner to give him a stone. Girard, looking earnestly at the stone said, “When it is in the power of man to eat and digest this solid stone, the religion for which I am about to suffer shall have an end, and not before,” and he submitted cheerfully to the flames.

Excerpts taken from Fox’s Book of Martyrs – Zondervan Publishing House (1926)

OVERCOMERS BY THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY

Throughout the years, on this and other websites, I have requested prayer for those in bonds. We often hear of prayer requests, and we pray, although less frequently do we hear about the answers to many of our prayers.

The Lord laid it on my heart to share the testimonies of these, whom the Lord has delivered from bonds, in direct answer to the prayers of the saints:

Gilad Shalit – Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Sergeant First Class abducted and taken prisoner by Hamas to Gaza 6/25/06; released by prisoner exchange – by the miracle-working hand of God 10/18/11!

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani – Christian pastor arrested in Iran 10/2009; sentenced to death by hanging for “apostasy” (for his Christian faith) 11/13/10; released by the miracle-working hand of God 9/8/12!

To God be all the glory for the release of these.

The Word of God says,

“They overcame by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death” Revelation 12:11.

I published a call to prayer on 12/10/15 for the release of Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini, American Veteran Amir Hekmati, American Bob Levinson and Christian mother Asia Bibi. After 37 days, on 1/16/16, Pastor Saeed Abedini and Amir Hekmati were released! Pastor Abedini had been in prison more than three years, and Amir Hekmati over four years. This demonstrates the power of the collective prayers of the saints!

The Word of God tells us,

“Confess your faults to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16.

“You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatsoever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you” John 15:16.

There are still those in bonds who need our continued prayers:

Asia Bibi – Christian mother arrested 6/2009 and sentenced to death by hanging in Pakistan for “apostasy.”

Pastor Hassan Abduraheem – Christian pastor arrested 12/18/15 in Sudan for his faith and faces the death penalty.

pastor-andrew-brunson

Pastor Andrew Brunson – Christian pastor arrested in Turkey 10/2016 for his faith (on trumped-up charges of “membership in an armed terrorist organization”).

Certain people hear of the names and plights of others who need our prayers. When their names cross our path, we need to pray for them.

Yes, there are many, many others that need prayer, but God will give the names of those we do not hear about to other Christians who will pray for them.

How do we keep up with all of the prayer requests? Personally, I print the names and stories of many people I have prayed for at least once, then I place their prayer requests on my makeshift “altar” before God. I may not call their individual names out every day, but I pray over them collectively every day, laying my hands upon the requests. This is one method of prayer, but the important thing is to pray in the manner God leads you to pray.

Prayer changes things, friends.

When Herod put forth his hand to vex the church, he killed James, the brother of John. He proceeded further to kill Peter also and the Bible tells us,

“Peter, therefore, was kept in prison; but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him…And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him and a light shined in the prison and he smote Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly, and his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird yourself and bind on your sandals, and so he did. And he said unto him, Cast your garment about you and follow me. And he went out and followed him and did not know that it was true which was done by the angel, but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and second ward, they came to the iron gate that led unto the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and passed through one street and henceforth the angel departed from him” Acts 12:5,7-10.

If you believe in God, do not limit Him. Nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37).

“Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
