Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
As we continue our focus this month on the Persecuted Church, this week's spotlight falls on one of the leading advocacy and outreach agencies for the Persecuted, Voice of the Martyrs. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His story is told in "Tortured for Christ", a featured book on the VOM website.
VOM's five purposes, taken from their website, are:
On the VOM website, you'll find prayer resources, lists of conferences and events, and many ways to support the Persecuted, including through letter writing and "action packs" to ship overseas. The prayer page includes both specific requests and a Prayer App available in iOS or Android. Besides the daily prayer requests in the Prayer App, they also provide an opportunity to sign up for a weekly e-mail of prayer requests.
The site is rounded out by a store with many different resources to both show support for the Persecuted Church and further our knowledge of the "veterans of the faith".
