"If one part suffers, every part suffers with it." 1 Corinthians 12:26
Open Doors works in over 60 countries, supplying Bibles, training church leaders, providing practical support and emergency relief, and supporting Christians who suffer for their faith. In the UK and Ireland Open Doors works to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilising prayer, support and action among Christians
Niger: Please pray for Christians in the Diffa region of Niger. A Christian woman was recently kidnapped for three days, and Christians in the area have been told to leave or be killed. Praise God that a separate suicide attack was foiled by government forces
Eritrea: The Eritrean government has seized and shut down all health centres run by the Catholic Church, after they refused to hand over the ownership of the centres. Please pray for those affected and for wisdom for church leaders.
India, attacks against Christians continue to increase, Open Doors is aiming to double its impact in India, reaching the most vulnerable people with persecution survival training, practical support and legal assistance. Remember to pray for Mohan & Moses as it may become increasingly difficult for them and the ministry of Cross Mission
Iran. Praise God that the church continues to grow rapidly, but there is an increase in political tensions in the area. Please pray for Christian converts who are likely to serve long prison sentences on trumped up political charges
These are just some examples from across the world.
