  • Pray


    When you unite in prayer for the persecuted church, you notice a powerful connection - to Christ, to one another and to our brothers and sisters living under oppression. In the place of prayer, we come to see the spiritual depth to be found in suffering. Brother Andrew has said, "Prayer is not preparation for the battle. Prayer is the battle." Thank you for praying for persecuted Christians worldwide.

  • Act


    You can be the voice for persecuted Christians who are beaten, imprisoned, tortured, and even killed for their faith in Jesus Christ. When asked how believers in America can help, our persecuted brothers and sisters respond, “Stand with us!” There are many ways you can stand with these believers and ultimately discover courage in your own walk of faith.

  • Give


    You could play a vital role in meeting the needs of hundreds of thousands of suffering Christians. You can make an eternal difference by bringing hope where faith costs the most.
