Pakistan

Monaza is a mother of five children. Her husband is unable to work owing to poor health. To support her family, she had to get a job as a domestic worker, a dangerous position for a vulnerable Christian woman in Pakistan.

Barnabas Fund has been working in Pakistan to help change lives of impoverished Christian families by providing them with monthly food parcels. This allows the families to use their meagre income to send their children to school, thus breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. They can also meet other needs. Monaza can now buy medicine for her husband.

Iraq

Our brothers and sisters in Iraq have become the target of threats, bombings, kidnapping, rape and murder. As Muslim extremists attempt to “cleanse” the country of Christians, thousands of families have fled their homes for relatively stable parts of northern Iraq and to the nearby countries of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

Egypt

The Christian community of Egypt has become increasingly needy over recent decades, and many Christian families live in severe poverty. Some of Egypt’s poorest Christians earn a living from collecting, sorting and reprocessing garbage in Cairo. Some children do not even know what an egg is.

Many Christian families in Africa, Asia and the Middle East go to bed hungry.

Poverty and discrimination can mean that Christian families suffer hunger more intensely than other sections of the population. Others become destitute when they have to flee from natural disaster or anti-Christian violence.

Some examples

  • Destitute Iraqi Christian refugees have left their homes and jobs as they flee anti-Christian violence
  • Christian families in Egypt, Pakistan and the Holy Land impoverished through discrimination
  • Christians in Zimbabwe are suffering under massive inflation and the destruction of the country’s agricultural sector
  • Christians in other parts of Africa are affected by drought and famine

Around 75,000 Christians received feeding supplies through Barnabas Fund between July 2010 and June 2011. But the need continues...

    • Remembering that the infant Lord Jesus Himself fled from threats of violence with His parents, pray for the Pakistanis from various persecuted minorities who had sought asylum in Sri Lanka but are now being deported back to Christmas concert at a school in Bethlehem that Barnabas Fund supports Pakistan. This is happening despite protests by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Those being deported include Christians, Ahmadiyyas and Shia Muslims, all of whom are vulnerable to persecution in Pakistan. For example, any Christian who has been accused under the “blasphemy law” is at extreme risk of being murdered even if they have been cleared of the charges. Pray for their protection.

    • As we remember the coming into the world of our Emmanuel (God with us), pray that His presence will be very real to Christians who suffer today for His Name, to those enduring hardship and abuse in prison, those who will go hungry today because of discrimination and injustice, those who face taunts and hostility daily at work or school, and those who are subject to pressure to convert to another religion.

    • In an initiative that discriminates against Christian staff and pupils, the Indian government has announced a plan to celebrate “good governance day” on 25 December, introducing an essay competition with a financial award as an incentive for turnout. As part of this initiative, schools will also remain open on 24 and 25 December. Please pray that the government will consider the impact of this initiative on Christians and change the proposed date. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Dec 2014 00:00

    • The Maleme ostrich farm which provides employment and skills training for local Zimbabweans through the Ebenezer programme is under threat. The authorities are in the process of seizing the land, ordering its Christian owners to abandon everything. The farm also generates enough income to sustain the Shalom facilities, a much-used campsite for Christian organisations and churches that has been running since 1958. Both Ebenezer and Shalom would have to be closed down if the land is occupied. Pray for wisdom for the leaders of Ebenezer and Shalom as they seek to show grace to the authorities in the midst of these heart-breaking negotiations. Pray that God’s justice will prevail and that the land will be kept for His purposes. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Dec 2014 00:00

    • It is reported that Hindu radicals have planned an event to convert 4,000 Christian and 1,000 Muslim families to Hinduism on Christmas Day. Pray for Christians in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India who are facing increasing pressure and violence since the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party gained political power on 26 May. Pray that God will grant strength to His people so that they will remain faithful. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Dec 2014 00:00
