International Day of Prayer

The most common request of persecuted Christians is “PRAY FOR US.”

One of the ways we answer their request is through participation on the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP), which we observe on the first Sunday of November each year.

We urge Christians worldwide to pray throughout the year for those who suffer because of their Christian witness.

Each year VOM produces an IDOP Resource Kit which includes marketing materials, prayer points via a PowerPoint presentation and a video. This year’s video focuses on Jeanette in Central African Republic.

This video can be used during a church service, small-group meeting or Sunday school class to inform and encourage believers to pray.

On 1 November, share this video with your church to help inspire every Christian to pray for our persecuted family.
