FRONT ROYAL, Va., Sept. 15, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- Is Your Church Praying for the Persecuted Church? The second Sunday of November is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Find out how your church can participate with others around the globe in prayer.

Christian Freedom International is pleased to offer your church a FREE resource kit www.christianfreedom.org/day-of-prayer which includes reproducible posters & bulletin inserts; suggestions for Sunday School curriculum for children and adults; suggestions for Biblical references to persecution & worship songs; notecards which your congregation can send to encourage a persecuted Christian overseas; and a CD containing all those materials, as well as a short video presentation.

This year, November 8th is the day set aside specifically to raise awareness for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are tormented and martyred for His Name's sake. We join together with many voices to lift up in prayer the needs of the Persecuted to our Father in Heaven.

"I encourage you to pray for Persecuted Believers," says CFI president Jim Jacobson "They are your Christian family throughout the world. Pray for their safety; that they would be emboldened to continue sharing the Gospel even in the face of persecution; that their persecutors would also come to know Christ as they observe the courageous witness of these believers."

The mission of Christian Freedom International is to help Christians who are persecuted for their faith. Our ministry reaches the part of the Persecuted Church that is the most repressed, isolated, and at risk. Every day around the world Christian men, women, and children are harassed, tortured, imprisoned, and martyred for their faith.
