International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church:

Although IDOP is recognized in November, these resources are available year-round for your church or prayer meeting.

Every day, believers around the world risk banishment, beatings, imprisonment and death to follow Christ and take His Gospel farther. Perseverance often seems impossible, but when the Lord enables believers to stand strong, He works mightily through their sufferings.

During IDOP 2012, we asked you to pray for GFA pastor Ugyen during his time in prison for sharing the Gospel. Now free, he and recently released Pastor Samuel share their stories of persecution and tremendous grace.

Guidelines for Effective Prayer Meetings

"Dear friend, as I share with you these guidelines on prayer, I know that they will do nothing for you, nor the kingdom of God, unless you start to enter warfare and start praying. You will see victories won that you never even dreamed were possible. May the Lord bring you to a place in your life where your prayers will help change the course of a lost world."
- K.P. Yohannan

K.P. Yohannan's Encouragement to Pray

Jesus promised his followers the world would hate and persecute them. And many Gospel for Asia supported missionaries have come to know the harsh reality of Jesus' words. Beatings, death threats and imprisonments are a few of the things they encounter on a daily basis.

Hear K.P. Yohannan encourage us to commit to pray and fast for believers all over the world.
