International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

IDOP 2019 bookmarkEvery November Christians around the world, including Ireland, unite for a time of prayer for brothers and sisters who are discriminated and persecuted for their faith.

Church in Chains prepares resources including 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 2019, the focus in Ireland is on Eritrea and we hope that prayer bookmarks will ordered again from Christians all over Ireland. Order your bookmarks here.
