International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church Sunday, November 10, is the day we are remembering thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who suffer persecution, simply because they confess Jesus Christ as Lord. Believers in countries such as Egypt, Eritrea, India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan and Vietnam face violence, imprisonment and even death because of their faith in Jesus Christ. There are other places in the world such as North Korea where acts of persecution take place, but we dont see or hear of it. Prayer cards will be available at booths in the foyer. Prisoner profiles with information on how to send letters to imprisoned Christians as well as information on how to write your Senators/Representatives. A list of websites with more information about the Persecuted church will also be available.
