Every year, churches and groups around the world take time to remember to pray for Christians who are suffering persecution globally. We, the IDOP Canada partners, monitor occurrences of the persecution of Christians and are alarmed at the increase in incident. Our brothers and sisters in Christ need our prayers!

The traditional church calendar marks “All Saints Day” and “All Souls Day” in the month of November. It is a season of remembering saints of the church and the souls of those who departed this world. It is an appropriate time for the modern day church to pray also for persecuted believers world-wide, through the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).

Today around the world over 200 million are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ.

The world is watching as Christians in Syria and Iraq are being brutally attacked and driven from their homes by ISIS. We encourage you to pray regularly for the situation in Iraq and surrounding regions.

Believers all around the world face violence, imprisonment and even death because of their faith in Christ.

More than ever, Christians who suffer need our prayers.

We invite you to explore this website, learn about those who suffer for their Christian faith, and then join others worldwide to pray this November.

Please note, that while Sunday, November 8th is the designated date for IDOP Canada, you are free to choose another date to pray if it better suits you and your group.
