Prayer Event Resources

Thank you for visiting our Prayer Event Resource page, where you can find materials for hosting a One With Them prayer-centered event.

Prayer is the number one request of persecuted Christians, so when you pray, you are truly standing with them as they serve Jesus in the world’s most hostile regions. In praying, you’re also living out the Biblical command to “Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” (Hebrews 13:3)

We at Open Doors are grateful for every Christian who takes seriously the call to “be alert and always keep praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:18) We consider each of you a partner in our work. Together, we are one body in Christ, and One With Them in prayer.
