Nov. 1 is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
If there’s ever been a time for the church to come together and pray, it’s now. Christian persecution is increasing every day. Bibles are being burned in China. North Korean believers are dying in labor camps. And radical groups are slaughtering Christians in Nigeria. On top of all that, these suffering believers have had to deal with the pandemic this year.
So will you join us for a special virtual prayer gathering to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ around the globe?
All you have to do is tune in online Nov. 1 at 4:30 p.m. EST (1:30 p.m. PST).
You’ll hear World Help’s founder, Vernon Brewer, and Senior Vice President, Tom Thompson, share testimonies and prayer requests sent in by persecuted believers worldwide. You’ll learn about how people in countries like North Korea, China, India, and Nigeria are bravely enduring abuse for their faith. And you’ll discover how the Gospel is transforming lives despite the odds.
You can also click here and to download free prayer resources to use before, during, and after the event. Use the family prayer guide to get your kids and spouse involved. Or print out the list of Bible verses about persecution to pray through the Scriptures.
Invite your friends, your church family, and others in your community to get involved, as well. Your prayers are powerful, so imagine the incredible impact when you, your friends, and so many other brothers and sisters in Christ tune in and come together for persecuted believers.
Mark your calendar now for the virtual prayer gathering Nov. 1. It will be a wonderful time of sharing testimonies, prayer requests, and, of course, praying with other Christians across the country for people who would do anything for the sake of the Gospel.
