A snapshot of the past few weeks:
Now is indeed time to pray. Thank you for deciding to join me in prayer today, and especially on November 13th for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
But there’s more you can do. With persecution heating up, I’m sure you can imagine the fear and uncertainty running through Christian communities right now. I’m praying that together we can offer each and every one of them the tangible help and encouragement they need as they face increasingly dangerous times.
In nations where the masses are hostile to those who follow Jesus, Open Doors is on the ground, ready to provide the spiritual and practical support they have specifically requested. As so many are suffering, we are seeking to raise $350,000 by the end of the year to strengthen 7,000 believers. A very generous donor has already sent a $175,000 grant, challenging you and others to encourage persecuted Christians through Open Doors by giving the best gift you can today.
Your gift of $50 sends one believer basic but critical provisions such as a Bible, spiritual training, safe housing, skills training and so much more… offering them comfort and encouragement during these dark hours. Your gift will be a huge blessing especially now, as the “Arab Spring” has turned into a “Christian Winter” for many. Please prayerfully consider to how many fellow believers you will send help and hope.
One with Them and You in Christ,
P.S. See why over 100 million believers have decided to courageously follow Jesus in a special film, I Have Decided, with Jadon Lavik.
