"When I (Nehemiah) heard these things (Jerusalem in ruins) I wept and prayed before the God of heaven." - Nehemiah 1:4
*UZBEKISTAN - The government has placed a ban on any religious literature. No one can possess any religious material in their homes or on their person. The Council of Church Baptists in this country stated the authorities are depriving Christians of any spiritual literature.
*KEVIN AND JULIA G - were teachers serving in China for the past 30 years. They have been unjustly detained by authorities since August 2014 amid allegations of spying for North Korea. Julia was released earlier this year. A trial date was to have been set for Kevin on April 19. Pray for his safety.
This is the plea of persecuted Christians around the world. Today around the world over 200 million are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. Each year, Canadians join with Christians in over 130 countries to stand in prayer with our suffering sisters and brothers for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).
Persecuted Church – Did you know?
An estimated 100 million Christians are murdered, assaulted, raped, tortured, beaten, abducted, forced to flee as internal, and external refugees.
Many Christians are forced to be secret believers, unable to declare their faith openly, and cannot get help from churches because their presence will jeopardize the safety of churches.
Persecution is growing and expanding in Africa, Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, Russia, Mexico, Venezuela and Peru.
Christian radio stations like Trans World Radio, HCJB Global Radio, and Far Eastern Broadcasting Association beam into persecuting areas to encourage secret believers.
Persecuted Christians face job discrimination, and lose educational opportunities.
