하나의 교회로 살기

Introduction

시작하기

Prayer is a way that God involves us in His work, bringing us into fellowship and unity with our greater spiritual family around the world. To help you pray more specifically for our persecuted brothers and sisters, VOM has created this Global Prayer Guide highlighting the restricted nations and hostile areas where believers face persecution because of their Christian witness. VOM serves persecuted Christians in 68 countries.

Each country summary includes information directly from VOM field staff, who meet with our persecuted family members to provide help, love and encouragement. The summary includes a brief background on the nation, the major religion, a description of the main persecutor(s), what it means to be a Christian in that nation, access to Bibles, and VOM’s work. The designation for each country — Restricted or Hostile — is also included.

RESTRICTED: This includes countries where government-sanctioned circumstances or anti-Christian laws lead to Christians being harassed, imprisoned, killed or deprived of possessions or liberties because of their witness. Also included are countries where government policy or practice prevents Christians from obtaining Bibles or other Christian literature. In addition to government persecution, Christians may also experience persecution from family, community members and/or political groups.

HOSTILE: This includes nations or large areas of nations where governments consistently attempt to provide protection for the Christian population, but Christians are routinely persecuted by family, friends, neighbors or political groups because of their witness.

This prayer guide can be used in many different ways. You may want to keep it in your Bible and use it to pray for a different nation each day during devotions, or you can share it with your small group and commit to pray for one or more countries each time you meet. However you choose to use the guide, we thank you for standing with our persecuted family in prayer.
