Release International is The Voice of the Martyrs’ sister mission in the United Kingdom. (Read more about VOM’s sister missions around the world here.) Release International encourages kids to pray for Christians in countries where followers of Christ are persecuted. Read three of their suggested prayers below, and choose one to pray today.
Please bless the children of Alimujiang Yimitri in China. Their dad was arrested in 2008 and sentenced to 15 years in prison because he is a follower of Yours. His sons will be 16 and 12 this year, and they miss their dad very much. At times they have only been allowed to see him for 15 minutes every three months. Please give the boys your special strength, hope, and love. Help them trust You to look after their dad by Your almighty power, and bring him home soon. Amen.
Thank you that Christians in other countries pay for some Christian children to go to school in Sri Lanka. Many more Christian children would love to go to school, but sadly their families can’t afford it. Please work in miraculous ways so that all Christian children can go to school. Amen.
“With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
Be with all the children who have been sent to prison with their families in Eritrea. Please give them all they need — food, water, and a safe place to sleep. Let them know that You are with them. Let them trust You, and fill their hearts with Your love. Keep them safe, and set them free. Please bless the family of a mom called Fikadu who died in prison. Amen.
