IDOP Devotional will Inspire You to Pray for Persecuted Christians in India

Approximately one of nine Christians around the world is a victim of persecution — acts such as rape, imprisonment, torture, isolation, enslavement, discrimination, and harassment for their faith.

Sunday, November 3 is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP), coordinated annually by The Voice of the Martyrs.

One noteworthy country you can pray for this year is India.

This was the first year India made the World Watch List’s top 10 worst countries to live as a Christian. Over 60 percent of Indian Christians experience direct oppression for their faith.

To raise awareness, Mission India is releasing a four-day devotional over IDOP weekend with the hopes of helping people pray for persecuted believers in India.

“It will kick off on October 31 and then it will capstone on November 3 and tie in with the actual day of International Day for the Persecuted Church,” Mission India’s Erik Morsehead says.
