Pray for the persecuted church in 2017

As 2017 approaches join with the Religious Liberty Commission of the Evangelical Alliance in praying for the persecuted Church across the globe. Herod's Massacre of the Innocents is traditionally marked on 28 December and so we're asking you to pray for Christians suffering for their faith.

Open Doors, Release International and Christian Solidarity Worldwide are working in countries where Christians are restricted in meeting together to worship or stopped from sharing their faith openly. The war in Syria has increased the pressure on Christians in that country and across the region, while in many other parts of the world Christians risk their life to practice their faith.

Prayer resources are available from Open Doors, Christian Solidarity Worldwide and Release International.
