General Prayer Suggestions
- Pray for safety and protection in travels and living situations.
- Pray for unity on their missionary team and in the churches they plant and work with.
- Pray for those who will hear the good news of the Gospel and respond to its life-changing message.
- Pray for the church’s growth and maturity in Christ through their commitment to prayer and God’s Word.

The Believer’s Prayer
On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them. When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “You made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: “Why do the nations rage and the people plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against His Anointed One. Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the Word of God boldly.” Acts 4:23-31.
The Persecuted Church
The U.S. State Department lists more than 70 countries where persecution of Christians is either promoted or permitted or where existing government restrictions create potential trouble for Christians and other religious groups. Prayer for the Persecuted Church mobilizes prayer support for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering for their faith. The highlight each year is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, held on the second Sunday of November. On that day hundreds of thousands of Christians in the U.S. and around the world join in focused prayer for those who are persecuted.
The event and the efforts surrounding the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (PPC) have helped raise awareness. PPC has done this through denominational leadership, Christian para-church groups, human rights and Christian freedom organizations, professional creative teams, media networks, and the production of compelling and quality resources.
The purpose of the Persecuted Church team at Cherry Creek Presbyterian is to support our Christian brothers and sisters in places of suffering worldwide by prayer and other tangible means.
