Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Ernest Sutton, who heads up Prayer for the Persecuted Church prayer group sent this in. He is doing a good job, by the way, of bringing in GO partners and others to present first-hand the needs of a particular area.

Prayer for the Persecuted Church will meet June 8 from 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM to pray for our brothers and sisters in North Korea who suffer for their faith. We are standing on the promises of Psalm 17:7-9 for them. "Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings, from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me."

In thinking about the persecution of the church, we can pray for Christians in Algeria. While it is legal for Christians to practice, they must have all meetings and leaders specially approved by the government. In the last couple days, there were about six Christians arrested for "meeting without authorization". They are being held in prison. Another Christian was arrested not too long ago, also in Algeria, for transporting Bibles on a bus.
