IDOP - Canada

International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church
Pray For Us...
This is the plea of persecuted Christians around the world. Right now around the world over 200 million are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. Each year, Christians all over Canada and in over 130 countries join together to stand with our suffering sisters and brothers and pray for God’s peace and grace in the midst of suffering and hostility; pray for the physical needs and safety of suffering Christians and their families; pray for the persecutors; and thank God for His faithfulness in the midst of tribulation.
