IDOP Nov. 1st & Nov. 8th ~Two opportunities to join in Prayer for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
This is our 589th year to partner with other prayer ministries. We have to give a nod of thanks to two grassroots groups, Voice of the Persecuted and Persecution Watch who day in and day out advocate for the Persecuted. They will take the lead to host the two 12 hour calls on Nov. 1st and Nov. 8th. Information for the 12 hour calls can be found below. A flyer has also been attached that you may share with your churches, faith/prayer groups and social media contacts.
Here is a brief portion of the note from Blaine, who moderated the 3 nights a week prayer conference call, Persecution Watch:
This prayer conference call is open to all with a love for Jesus Christ. It is open to all who have a love for the persecuted church, be you a seasoned intercessor or not, crying out or silently pray in agreement—ALL can be prayer warriors on these 2 calls. You may join the call at anytime during the 12 hours and stay long as you feel led to pray, or as your time allows.
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:18-20
My brothers and sisters, join us to unite as one in prayer with the persecuted on one or both of the November calls. In the meantime, please feel welcome to come on one of our weekly calls to lift up our persecuted brethren. If one suffers, we all suffer.
Your brother in Christ,
Blaine Scogin, Prayer Director Voice of the Persecuted/Persecution Watch
(Voice of the Persecuted) MARK YOUR CALENDARS! My Brothers and Sisters, often our Christian family in persecuted lands are asked by Western ministries how can we help you. First and foremost, the response of the Persecuted Church is please pray for us. Please remember us in your prayers. Before these persecuted brethren ask for anything else, they ask for our prayers.
Their requests for prayer:
- Please pray my brother or sister that we be faithful to Jesus in the midst of our persecutions.
- Please pray that we do not deny Jesus in our persecutions.
- Please pray that we be strong and true and courageous for Jesus before our persecutors.

- Please pray that we…
