Watch and Pray

Families of Martyrs

The families of martyred Christians are often burdened with financial worries even as they are overwhelmed by the trauma of losing a loved one. The Voice of the Martyrs supports families around the world who have lost a loved one because of his or her Christian witness.

In 2011, militant Muslims burst into Afanan’s home in Iraq. They locked Afanan and her two children in a room while they tortured her husband. The family was forced to listen to his cries until they ended with a fatal gunshot.

VOM supports Afanan and others like her, but they also need our prayers. Pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort those who have lost loved ones.
