International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

November 1 and 8, 2015 (or any Sunday in November)

On November 1 and 8, join believers around the world in lifting up our persecuted brothers and sisters in unified prayer.

Pastor Samuel suffered eight years in prison while his wife endured loneliness and his daughter grew up without a father—all for Christ’s sake. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to Samuel and his family, and please pray for many others who are enduring persecution right now.

You can share this video on social media, with your church or with others to help them intercede for persecuted believers, too.
