One Month - One Church - One Prayer

Prayer is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why the Religious Liberty Commission has dedicated the whole month of November to prayer and action for persecuted Christians around the world. The Religious Liberty Commission is a coalition of the religious freedom charities Release International, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Open Doors, and the Evangelical Alliance. We’ve chosen November because it’s the month of the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (19 Nov) - the perfect opportunity for Christians of every denomination to join together and pray for Christians who suffer because of their faith.

Join with Christians around the globe in praying for our brothers and sisters who are persecuted for their faith this November. Here's a prayer you may wish to you use, and video to show and share.

Father God,

As one Church, united under your holy headship, and knowing that we are all one family in Christ;

We pray for those who suffer in your name all over the world, our brothers and sisters, who share in that same great gift of salvation through your Son, 
but who face injustice, oppression and even death because of their faith in you.

We want to walk with them as they journey through the valley of darkness,
and we pray knowing that you are a God of compassion, comfort, and justice; 
who always hears their prayers, never leaves them and will forever be their fortress and shield, whatever they face.

We pray that you will grant them strength, courage, 
and protection from those who seek to harm them because they follow you; 
Guidance and wisdom for when their path seems impossible to tread,
And hope for a future where they have the freedom to worship you without fear. 

In the name of Jesus,

Amen

Persecution of Christians worldwide has become such a significant issue that Release International, Open Doors, Christian Solidarity Worldwide and the Evangelical Alliance have joined together to form the Religious Liberty Commission.

Each of the members of the RLC have resources and information so you can unite with the Church worldwide to pray for those who suffer for following Jesus.
