Secret believers are often from a Muslim background. Often their families are their greatest threat. In some countries, they are threatened by religious extremist groups and even the government. If their faith is exposed, they face rejection by their families, punishment by religious courts, violence and sometimes even kidnapping or death.
So they keep their faith a secret to remain safe, especially when they’re new believers.
One of the biggest challenges to secret believers is loneliness, and many will return to their old faith or no faith at all without someone to guide them.
They need prayer to continue to stand strong despite all they face. That is why this month, we’re asking you, their family of faith, to join in praying with us for them from 22 March to 20 April 2023 through our WhatsApp prayer campaign for them.
By praying for them, you are strengthening the Body of Christ. Your prayers will help secret believers know they are not alone.
Sign up below to receive weekly prayer points on WhatsApp from 22 March to 22 April to pray for secret believers. When you sign up, you will receive a FREE Afghanistan illustrated e-book.
