In this brief video, Dr. Michael Lawrence, pastor of Hinson Church in Portland, Oregon, summarizes the biblical and historical reasons why Christians need to regularly pray for the persecuted church. In addition to making an appeal to join the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, pastor Lawrence explains how he leads his local church to pray specifically and regularly for the persecuted church year round.
