Pray for Our Safe Houses

Leading The Way has safe houses dedicated to providing refuge for persecuted Christians in the Middle East—people like:

"M," whose family threatened him with death because of his faith and whose ministry center was closed by the police.

"A," a refugee who cannot return to his home country because of threats to his life.

Families who have fled ISIS persecution in Iraq with just the clothes on their backs.

For some, their family members are still searching for them to harm them, kill them, or persuade them to recant their Christian faith and return to Islam. For these believers, the safe house provides a safe environment to live in and a place to receive pastoral support.

Our on-the-ground teams have shared how you can join them in prayer:

"Pray for the safe house to be a shelter to many and a place of rest, peace, and joy. Please pray for God to grant our team wisdom, strength, and courage to run the house."


Ramadan Prayer Guide

This prayer guide comes from one of our partners on the ground in the Arab world, a Christian and former Muslim.

Ramadan, fasting month in Islam, begins today in most countries. Please remember to pray for Muslims to see the light of Jesus and for new believers to stand strong against all challenges they face during this month.

Muslims believe that the Qur’an was given as a revelation during this month. They believe that evil spirits are bound in this month. Thus, nearly everyone, including nominal Muslims, become faithful in the Muslim ritual prayers during Ramadan. They fast from the first light of dawn until sunset without eating or drinking anything all day.

Muslims believe these 30 days of Ramadan are divided into 3 parts:

  1. First 10 days: A time of forgiveness when Allah forgives sins.
  2. Second 10 days: A period of mercy when Allah shows his mercy to faithful Muslims.
  3. Third 10 days: A period of escape from hell when God delivers those who do Ramadan well.

Muslims try very hard to do the ritual prayers and fasting to obtain these rewards, doing many things only to go to heaven, but not out of a love for God.

The life of the believers in Christ is also greatly impacted during this month. Many believers live at home with their family who are Muslims. Thus, they cannot eat at home or at any public place. New believers in particular face many tribulations. For this reason, please pray for the following points:

  • Believers to stand strong and boldly seize opportunities to share about God’s love for them through Christ in a manner that Muslims can see their need for Him.
  • New believers to have wisdom in responding to questions like “Are you fasting?” or “Why aren’t you coming with us?” from friends, family, and the community.
  • Muslims to see that their works are insufficient for being made right before a Holy God.
  • Muslims tuning in to our satellite programs to have a true thirst for God, to seek the Truth, and to ask for God’s forgiveness through Christ.

During Ramadan people often call our satellite channel to insult believers. Pray for those responding to these calls to be full of the Spirit and able to respond with boldness, without fear and full of Christ’s love for them.

Thank you for your prayers.


Pray for Our Team in the Middle East

This week, some of our team are in the Middle East meeting with recipients of our Help The Persecuted ministry and assessing the needs of our persecuted brothers and sisters on the ground. Here's how you can pray for them:

That they would be a source of encouragement to the church in the Middle East.

That God would show them the most urgent needs of the persecutedand reveal how Leading The Way can help.

Prayer: Lord, strengthen the persecuted church as they continue to persevere for You. Use the Leading The Way team to encourage them, refresh them, and bring them hope. Guide the team in wisdom as they assess how to best steward Your resources for the Kingdom. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.


Prayers of Thanks and Praise for 2014

For Leading The Way, 2014 was a year of expansion. As we begin a New Year, let's praise God for all He did in 2014 and thank Him for what He will do in 2015:

In 2014, Leading The Way launched THE KINGDOM SAT, our 24/7 satellite channel, in Indonesia, the largest Muslim nation. Through a new partnership with a local Indonesian channel, we are able to broadcast our programs in the Indonesian language and follow up with viewers. We have already heard testimonies of how God is using this channel to draw viewers to Christ.

In 2014, Leading The Way began broadcasting in Sinhala, the language of Sri Lanka, and Japanese. Leading The Way now broadcasts in 24 languages, the most recent of which are Asian languages. Pray for God to use these dual-language programs to reach this region of the world and to open more doors to share the Word of God in Asia.

In 2014, our Help The Persecuted ministry grew exponentially. As the Syrian civil war led to one of the largest refugee crises in history and as the Islamic State advanced into Iraq, God grew our Help The Persecuted team and opened doors for Leading The Way to provide direct support to persecuted Christians in the region.

In 2014, we saw a huge advancement in our One Million Pocket Missionaries project after receiving a generous donation, allowing us to distribute 100,000 Navigator solar-powered audio devices with the Bible and Dr. Youssef's messages over the next 20 months. We are excited about this opportunity to reach hundreds of thousands more people with the Good News.

In 2014, we began broadcasting our Arabic-English radio programs in Boston, Massachusetts. These broadcasts, which now air in Boston, Richmond, and Detroit, enable us to reach some of the largest Arabic-speaking populations in America.

With your support, we were able to end the year strong and exceed our goal for the $500,000 Gift Challenge that took place in December. Thank you for your prayers and partnership in 2014 and your ongoing support in 2015!

To learn more about Leading The Way's ministry work in 2014, read our FY14 Annual Report.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for these new opportunities to share Your Word around the world. Guide the Leading The Way team as they produce new programs, follow up with listeners and viewers, and help the persecuted around the world. May each listener and viewer receive Your Truth and know Your love. We submit all these plans to You and commit ourselves fully to Your work in 2015, that You may be glorified. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 1:3-6).
