This site provides a Big Picture global overview of the most fundamental, critical prayer requests (CPR) for nations where Christians are persecuted and religious freedom is either absent, in decline or under threat. More than 50 nations and regions are listed in alphabetical order along with a thumbnail map, a snapshot of the religious liberty situation, and the name of the President or Prime Minister so we might pray for the Church, the nations and world leaders.

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.  This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:1-4 ESV)
