Suffering But Growing Church

Why we should pray for Christians post-persecution

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Those who have survived persecution often need just as much prayer as those currently enduring persecution.  It is relatively common knowledge that Christians in Iran can be imprisoned for their faith. New arrests and prison sentences hit the prayer headlines quite regularly. But less well known is the potential long-term psychological damage that persecution can cause. Long after an abusive arrest, an extended stint in solitary, an intensive interrogation, or incarceration in a volatile ward, Christians can continue to suffer. Once released, the trauma is not necessarily over: whether it’s dark nightmares, flashbacks, paranoia, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, the effects can sometimes be devastating and long-lasting.  Especially for those who have endured physical or psychological torture, memories remain, fear and uncertainties cloud the mind, wounds need healing. Will you join us in praying for long-term healing for all those who are suffering following persecution? The support of friends, family and church members is vital for recovery; let’s pray for wisdom as they seek to love, care and pray for survivors.  Let’s pray also that those that need professional counselling support would find it, and that all survivors would continue to bring their pain, memories and questions before Jehova Rapha- our God who heals. Pray for Emotional healing Wisdom for family and friends New hope and vision for the future
