This November, millions of Christians worldwide will unite for one cause: to join the global Body of Christ for the 2019 International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted (IDOP). The number one thing persecuted Christians ask for is prayer, and we want to equip you to be able to meet their request.
Each year, in preparation for the first Sunday of November, ICC assembles a unique resource kit for both churches and individuals, and sends out our expert staff to speak at churches and organizations on the plight of the persecuted.
On January 5, an Egyptian Muslim cleric named Sheikh Sayed Askar witnessed a terrorist planting bombs on the roof of the Virgin Mary and Father Seifin Church in Nasr City, near Cairo, Egypt.
After Askar alerted the police, the government responded to the Imam’s observation and immediately dispatched a specialized bomb squad to defuse the bombs. The squad located three bombs on the roof of the church.
Tragically, while the officers were attempting to defuse the bombs, one detonated. Please join us in thanking these brave men with your signature to honor their sacrifice.
