MISSIONS OF THE MONTH - Christian Solidarity Worldwide & Elam Ministries

Christian Solidarity Worldwide supports Christians throughout the world who are persecuted and unjustly treated for their Christian faith. CSW helps to keep governments informed and continuously campaigns to expose the truth about the way some countries tread on the human rights of believers.

Elam Ministries works specifically to support Christians in Iran, a country which is closed to the Gospel. As well as campaigning on behalf of persecuted Christians in Iran, Elam undertakes training programmes to equip believers for Christian leadership and ministry.

Pray for Christians who are being greatly persecuted for their faith in many parts of the world.

Pray for the ongoing effectiveness of the public awareness campaigns by CSW and Elam Ministries on behalf of persecuted Christians.

Pray for the much persecuted but fast growing church in Iran which is believed to number over 300,000. Pray for protection for the Christian believers, evangelists and Bible distributors in Iran. Give thanks for the effectiveness of Christian satellite TV programmes in serving the church and encouraging Christians.  Pray for Iranian refugees who have fled all over Europe that they may come to hear the Gospel.
