The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) will be marked in Ireland on Sunday 17 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 Eritrea, known as one of the most repressive countries in the world and whose government has been accused by the UN of of carrying out “crimes against humanity”.
Will you join us in praying for our brothers and sisters in Eritrea?
Please ask your church leader to make time in the worship service on Sunday 17 November (if date not suitable, choose another Sunday in November) and use the order form below to order the prayer resources (Ireland & UK only).
Church in Chains is providing four resources for IDOP:
