"By one Spirit we were all baptized into one body – Jews or Greeks, slaves or free – and all were made to drink of one Spirit.”
There are 200 million Christians suffering for their faith every day, from Cuba to North Africa to the Muslim Middle East, India and the rest of South Asia, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Indonesia, to name a few. Yet they remain largely forgotten by the church in the West. Jesus commanded us to love each other, and the Christians overseas are just as much our brothers and sisters as the members of our own congregations. ICC offers the following resources for pastors and churches to learn about persecution so they can educate and move their congregations to pray for and care for their persecuted brothers and sisters.
International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted
In addition to the resources we make available for individuals, you can download ICC's free resource kit for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted. The kit includes:
Let us plan your Sunday service. From bulletin inserts to prayer requests from the mouths of the persecuted, we have everything you need to engage your congregation on this important day.

ICC is constantly monitoring the state of Christian persecution in countries around the world and looking for ways that we can act as bridge between our supporters and the persecuted church. Beyond the projects you see above, we are working in many other areas to provide practical assistance to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
