A Call to Prayer
IDOP-Africa invites you to join Christians around the world in praying with, and for, the persecuted church on Sunday, 13 November. www.idop-africa.org provides you with news, articles, resources, PowerPoints, video links and contacts to enable you to mobilise your friends, family, co-workers, congregation and community to prayer and action on behalf of those who are persecuted for the Faith.
Christians Under Fire
Over 400 million Christians live in the 66 countries of the world which severely restrict, or persecute, believers. Every year, an average of 200,000 Christians die as martyrs for Christ. Christian brothers and sisters are being persecuted for their Faith in: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Red China, Congo, Cuba, Egypt, Eritrea, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Lagos, Malaysia, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Palestine territories, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Philippines, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
Targets of the World's Hate
Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet, because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore, the world hates you." John 15:18-19
The apostle Paul strengthened the disciples and encouraged them to remain true to the Faith by teaching: "We must through many tribulations enter the Kingdom of God." Acts 14:22
How Firm a Foundation
Our Lord Jesus Christ taught that many believers would forsake Him (Matthew 24:9-10), when trouble, or persecution comes, because of their superficial commitment. Those with no roots in God's Word would fall away quickly (Matthew 13:21).
