The first two Sundays of November have been set apart to remember and pray for the persecuted church, through the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). On November 1 and 8, 2015, local churches, ministries, and Christian organizations will unite together to “continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering” (Hebrews 13:3 NIV).
Today’s greatest untold story is that more than 100 million Christians worldwide face persecution for their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Daily, Christians in countries such as Eritrea, Nigeria, India, Pakistan, Sudan and Sri Lanka face imprisonment, violence and even death. IDOP is a time set apart for us to remember thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who suffer persecution, simply because they confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
We invite you to download the resources on the IDOP website to share with your church family and hope you will join Christians worldwide in praying for persecuted Christians this November.
