Day of prayer and fasting for India

Choose a date that works for you and then join the Open Doors community for a day of fasting prayer as we stand in solidarity with our Christian brothers and sisters in India who find themselves in desperate need of food.

Ranked No. 10 on the 2020 World Watch List, the country of 1.3 billion people is one of the world’s most dangerous places for Christians. Along with other religious minorities, Christians are targeted for their faith. COVID-19 and the country’s strict quarantine brought another layer of persecution and suffering. Thousands of Indian Christians, often day laborers, are struggling to feed their families. Because they have left Hinduism, they have no family to turn to for help. We also have reports of Christian converts not receiving government aid because they have decided to follow Jesus.

There are 3 things you can do to join the Open Doors Community as we stand with our brothers and sisters in India.


Go without food and use the day to remember and pray in solidarity with our hurting brothers and sisters.

“Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders. and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD” (Joel 1:14).


  • Pray for believers who are fighting to survive and feed their families.
  • Pray for Rajesh, an Open Doors local partner.
  • Pray for Christians facing false accusations.
  • Pray for Kirti, who continues to live in the village where her husband was killed for his faith.
  • Pray for believers facing harassment, rejection and violence.


Join us as Open Doors’ staff pray for our brothers and sisters in India!
