International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church
November 2, 2014 (or any Sunday in November)
On November 2 (or any Sunday in November), join churches across the nation in lifting up the persecuted through unified prayer. Share this video with your congregation or small group, and let them see how their prayers can strengthen believers and expand God’s kingdom into the most unreached places.
Every day, believers around the world risk banishment, beatings, imprisonment and death to follow Christ and take His Gospel farther. Perseverance often seems impossible, but when the Lord enables believers to stand strong, He works mightily through their sufferings.

Guidelines for Effective Prayer Meetings
"Dear friend, as I share with you these guidelines on prayer, I know that they will do nothing for you, nor the kingdom of God, unless you start to enter warfare and start praying. You will see victories won that you never even dreamed were possible. May the Lord bring you to a place in your life where your prayers will help change the course of a lost world."
- K.P. Yohannan
K.P. Yohannan's Encouragement to Pray
Jesus promised his followers the world would hate and persecute them. And many Gospel for Asia supported missionaries have come to know the harsh reality of Jesus' words. Beatings, death threats and imprisonments are a few of the things they encounter on a daily basis.
Hear K.P. Yohannan encourage us to commit to pray and fast for believers all over the world.
