Pray for the persecuted church

The first and second Sundays in November are widely recognized as the International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.  They serve as reminders of the 100+ million believers worldwide who face persecution for their faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In over sixty countries, 300+ Christians are killed each month because they follow Jesus. Over 200 church buildings and Christian-owned properties are destroyed each month.
