International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church 2015

More than 100 million Christians around the world face persecution daily because of their faith in Jesus Christ. These persecuted brothers and sisters are in urgent need of prayer and help.

The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is a time set apart to remember them.

Over the past year, thousands of Christians in the Middle East have been forced to flee as a result of the atrocities committed by the Islamic State. Elsewhere, in countries like Nigeria, scores of Christians have been killed for their faith.

“We urge the global Church to unite in prayer for the persecuted Church this November,” said Godfrey Yogarajah, the Executive Director of the Religious Liberty Commission of the World Evangelical Alliance.

The designated dates for this year’s IDOP is 1 and 8 November. In some countries, IDOP will also be observed on 15 November. We invite you to visit the IDOP website to download special resources to help you pray effectively for the persecuted.

We urge you to unite in prayer for the persecuted Church in the spirit that Christ commanded, “for, if one suffers, we all suffer.”

Remember their chains.
