    Praying for Refugees

    Every minute, 25 people leave everything to escape war, persecution or terror. There are currently 70.8 million forcibly displaced persons globally. We pray for these refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced persons.

    The situation may seem hopeless. Even trying to supply basic needs can be overwhelming. Our unstable world needs a Savior who brings peace and redemption. Our Redeemer, Jesus, was an outcast in his native land. He united Jews and Gentiles through the cross, breaking down the wall of hostility that separated them (Eph. 2:14). And he wants to bring this same redemption to our world today.

    We pray for God to give governments and relief agencies the wisdom, resources and strategies to help rebuild the lives of those displaced. We pray for Christians to lovingly embrace these newcomers and to walk alongside them.

    Only our Father can bring healing to these hurting individuals. Pray for those in need to call out to God, who sees their trouble and understands their grief. Ask that these victims commit themselves to God, the helper of the fatherless (Ps.10:14).

    God is rebuilding lives and bringing hope. Through a multitude of individuals and organizations, God is placing SD cards with the gospel message into refugees’ hands, along with food and clothing. Immigrants are being welcomed into church communities worldwide. By June 2020, in the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, a TWR radio station will begin broadcasting the Word of God through life-giving radio programs such as Women of Hope. Our local Kenyan team is hoping to distribute prayer calendars to women in the camp as well.

    Despite this global humanitarian crisis, the Church of Jesus Christ is being continually renewed as God brings light and life to the most vulnerable.
