International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

idop2016November 6 and November 13 are the International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.

We tend to want to pray for protection and safety, but persecuted Christians want us to pray for boldness for them to stand up for Jesus.

You’ll find some advice on praying for persecuted Christians at Campus Crusade for Christ.

Lord God, we pray for our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters. Give them strength and endurance to withstand the trials they are going through and boldness to proclaim Your Word in the midst of persecution. Let them feel Your presence, Your love, and Your peace. Give them hope and an eternal perspective on their sufferings. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
