    Stand with the Suffering Christians on the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted


    Stand with the Suffering Christians on this Special Day
    David Curry, CEO Open Doors USA

    Brother Andrew once said, “No door is closed to prayer,” and it’s true. Prayer is one of our most effective Kingdom resources. At Open Doors, we believe passionately in the power of prayer to accomplish God’s work and meet the needs of persecuted believers around the globe.

    We know you believe this too. That’s why we want you to be a part of the annual International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) on Sunday, November 5. Mark your calendar and join God in His work and stand in prayer with our brothers and sisters in Christ who don’t enjoy our freedoms.

    From Breakpoint:

    On a sunny day last May, several families climbed onto a couple of buses, happily looking forward to visiting a monastery together.

    They never made it. Instead, half of them, including ten children, were slaughtered. You see, these families were Egyptian Christians.

    Islamic terrorists dressed in military fatigues stopped the buses and ordered the riders off. As one eyewitness later said, “As each pilgrim came off the bus, they were asked to renounce their Christian faith and profess belief in Islam. But all of them—even the children—refused.” The terrorists murdered 29 Christians before fleeing.

    This Sunday is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. It’s a time to focus our attention on our brothers and sisters who are being arrested, tortured, murdered, and driven out of their homeland, simply because they worship Jesus.

    Thank you for posting this thread, much about what's happening I don' know. So it's helpful to talk about it, reminding people how difficult many have it and have them in mind.

    To those persecuted I hope the circumstances change for the better. No people should be mistreated for their beliefs, being able to freely practice. If only people would learn to put what's personal aside, not expecting more from others than they should.
