I was telling my husband the other day that I want to definitely make sure that our church participates in this years International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. And as I was telling him about this, I couldn't help but think how fun it would be to use some shocking drama to awaken the American church. However, after telling my husband my idea, I realized that some people may not understand it was simply "drama" when a man would come in and hold the church up at gunpoint. And I admit it, that THAT idea, while it would probably work, might also cause a few elderly people to fall to the ground with a heart attack and then the church would be sued for scaring people to death.
Which is exactly why this year you all need to get your materials to celebrate the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church early.
Click here to request your free materials for your church or yourself before October 29th.
Remember also, that this year the IDOP is November 11th - (for us in America that is also Veteran's Day) and the theme is Secret Believers.
Let us know in our comments today if you plan on letting your church know about this years IDOP and if you are going to participate personally.
