International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP)
Every November Christians around the world, including Ireland, unite for a time of prayer for brothers and sisters who are persecuted for their faith.
Church in Chains prepares resources including posters, bookmarks for every person (containing prayer points), an information sheet (for the person leading prayers) and a short PowerPoint presentation. Whether you are praying as a church, a school, a Christian Union orin a small group, these resources will help guide your prayer time and connect you with persecuted Christians around the world.
In 2017, the focus in Ireland was on Iran. Over 3700 prayer bookmarks were ordered this year from Christians all over Ireland – from Donegal to Kerry, Dublin to Galway and Wexford to Mayo. Members of one Christian Union and more than 65 churches around the country participated and prayed for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Iran who face discrimination and persecution in their everyday lives.
