Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too.

*Nov. 9th: International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Church

Helping others, Religion

Sunday, November 9th is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.

We Americans have the freedom to worship or not worship as we please and often are unaware of the plight of believers in other parts of the world. Organizations such as Open Doors and Voice of the Martyrs work to raise awareness of worldwide religious persecution and strive to aid these persecuted believers.

From the Open Doors website:

International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is a global day of intercession for persecuted Christians worldwide. We also encourage prayer for the souls of the oppressors, the nations that promote persecution, and those who ignore it. IDOP is a rallying point for Christians across all denominations to stand behind those who suffer for their faith. 

We believe that prayer changes lives.

This year join thousands of churches around the world on Sunday, November 9
and send the greatest gift of all—prayer.

Why is the focus this year on children of the persecuted Church?

  • Christian girls are kidnapped and forced to Islam
  • College students risk expulsion or worse if they profess the Word of God
  • Pastors who give their lives for their faith, leave behind traumatized children

Order a free IDOP kit for your church or small group or donate today.

Unfamiliar with the persecution of Christians in China, Iraq, Nigeria or Egypt? Take a look at what is going on in these countries and don't forget to pray.
