The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) will be marked in Ireland on Sunday 18 November. Churches all over the country will devote time during their services on that day to pray for the Persecuted Church.

The focus this year will be on North Korea.

We will be praying for the Christians in North Korea who must practice their faith in secret and for the thousands of Christians imprisoned in labour camps.

We will be praying for the people of North Korea many of whom live in extreme poverty and at risk of starvation.

We will be praying for a change of heart of Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea.

To help us pray, we have prepared three free resources (bookmark, information sheet and PowerPoint) which detail the current situation of the church in North Korea.

Will you join us?

Please ask your church leader to make time in the worship service on Sunday 18 November (if date not suitable, choose another Sunday in November) and use the order form below to order the prayer resources (Ireland & UK only).
