International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church
PERSECUTION IS REAL. IT IS A DAILY
REALITY FOR MORE THAN 340 MILLION CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE.
Every year, the World Watch List is produced which ranks the top 50
most dangerous countries to live in as a Christian. The World Watch List
is based on a comprehensive scoring system that measures the degree of
freedom Christians have in five key areas of life – private, family, community, national and church life.
These are then added to the amount of violence they experience to provide a final ranking.

Through the month of November, we will be lifting up the persecuted church in prayer.
Each Sunday we will be praying for Christians in a different country that are persecuted for following Jesus.
The Children will be participating by taking home a prayer passport to pray for Christians in 50 different countries around the world.
