A TIME TO PRAY FOR THE PERSECUTED
On the first Sunday of each November, the global Church unites to intercede for Christians facing persecution for their faith.
This year, the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) falls on November 5th. Millions will be standing together in prayer on this day.
We invite you and your church to join in and we encourage you to include Iran in your prayers.
