“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
— Matthew 5:10, ESV
International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church
On Nov. 3, join thousands of Christians as we pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters. Set aside time with your family and friends to cry out to God on their behalf.
You can also help by providing Bibles. Many believers facing persecution don’t have access to the comfort of God’s Word. But for $10, you can give one Bible to a Christian hungry for the Scriptures in places like North Korea and Iran.
And thanks to a matching gift, your donation of Bibles will be DOUBLED up to $100,000!
YOUR GIFT DOUBLES to provide 2X as many Bibles to persecuted Christians!
Ways you can help
Pray. Many Christians tell us, “Don’t pray for the persecution to stop.” Instead, they ask for prayer that they will stay strong in their faith and have opportunities to share the Gospel. Click here for resources on how to pray for the persecuted church.
Give. Persecuted believers need your prayers, but they are also begging for Bibles. Every Bible you give — for just $10 — will be shared with family and friends, impacting multiple people!

Ways you can help
Provide Bibles for the persecuted
Persecuted believers need your prayers, but they also are begging for Bibles. When you provide Bibles to Christians in North Korea, you give encouragement when they need it most. For $10, you can give one Bible to a North Korean believer. And because that Bible will be shared among friends, your gift multiplies to impact at least five people.
Pray for the persecuted
Many of our brothers and sisters around the world tell us, “Don’t pray for the persecution to stop.” Instead, they ask for prayer that they will stay strong in their faith, that the blood of martyrs will continue to be the seed of the church, and that they will have opportunities to share the Gospel — even with their persecutors. Check out the resources listed below for more suggestions about how to pray for the persecuted church.
