Prayer Resources

Church in Chains provides several resources to help you pray for the persecuted church:

Prayer Diary CoverWe publish a monthly Prayer Diary with prayer points for every day which is available for download in the sidebar of each page on our website. Each month we begin with praying for news and events, then we move on to pray for two countries and finish with praying for individual prisoners. It is a really useful resource for you if you want to pray for the persecuted church on a daily basis!
