It's not too late to make sure that your church will "Remember those in bonds..." (Heb. 13:3) this Sunday on the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).
Each year, VOM produces a short film for churches to show during IDOP services, to illustrate the challenges faced by our persecuted brothers and sisters and to encourage prayer on their behalf.
This year's video, Liena's Prayer, can be viewed above. While it may be too late to order a DVD of the film to show this weekend, you can DOWNLOAD the video here.
There are also numerous other resources to help your church pray, including a church bulletin insert and prayer resources for both youth and children.
The first request of persecuted Christians, when VOM staff travels to meet with and minister to them, is that we PRAY. Your church can be a part of the answer to their request this Sunday on the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
While IDOP is an important Sunday, our family in hostile and restricted nations needs prayer throughout the year. VOM has tools to help you pray, including our 2015 Prayer Calendar and apps for your iOS and Android smartphone that remind you to pray each day. ICommitToPray is a web site updated each week with fresh requests from hostile and restricted nations.
Thank you for your prayers on behalf of our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.
