Engaging the church behind the walls in prayer for the persecuted church

Welcome! We are so thankful that you are here and excited to partner with you in engaging the church behind the walls in prayer for the persecuted church.

Last year, over 245 million Christians lived in places where they experience high levels of persecution for their faith. The numbers are telling: 4305 Christians were killed for their faith, 1847 churches and other Christian buildings were attacked and 3,150 believers were detained without a trial, arrested, and sentenced or imprisoned.

Open Doors USA is a community of Christians who came together to support persecuted believers in more than 60 countries where it is hardest to be a follower of Christ.

We are excited to about this opportunity to partner with you because we think the church behind the walls may, in fact, be some of the best partners in prayer for the persecuted church. The church behind the walls understands feelings of isolation, the hope that others will will remember them, and gratefulness for the people who stand with them in difficult times.

We would love to resource you with ways the church behind the walls can connect in prayer for the persecuted church. The resources are free—and the impact is priceless!

After signing up, you will receive a video to introduce the church behind the walls to their Christian persecuted brothers and sisters. In order to keep their prayers informed of specific requests, we will also be emailing you our Prayer Force Alert—a monthly prayer calendar.
