Why should I pray with the persecuted church?
We think the words of this Egyptian pastor answer this question best.
"Please do not pray for us. Please pray with us. If you pray for us, you will pray for the wrong things. You will pray that the church will be safe. You will pray for persecution to cease. We are not praying for these things. We ask that we will be bold and clear in sharing our faith. And we pray that when the inevitable persecution comes, that we will not run away, that we will be faithful in that persecution even if it costs us our lives. Will you tell your friends to pray these prayers with us?"
Can I participate in IDOP on a different day?
Of course! Choose another day that works for you or your group to pray with the persecuted church all over the world.
