"Pray without ceasing ... "—1 Thessalonians 5:17

HELP THE PERSECUTED TO FIND REFUGE! Contact Citizenship and Immigration Canada to find out more about refugee sponsorship. Also, your church denomination may already be part of a refugee sponsorship initiative, see if your denomination is on this list.

Many of you are so moved by the stories and reports of persecuted brothers and sisters around the world that you make praying for them an ongoing priority - beyond IDOP Sunday. You can pray more specifically by visiting the following partner sites where up-to-date news is posted. We encourage you to visit these sites. Many of those who live under the oppression of persecution often ask for two things - the first for us to pray for them - the second for us to remember and to act on their behalf. Stay connected with the persecuted - visit these sites - then PRAY, REMEMBER, and ACT. 

Pray more specifically for those believers in prison.
