“If we want to leave an indelible mark on the world, there is no more powerful way to do it than by joining in God‘s purposes through prayer...There are no borders, no prison walls, no doors that are closed when we pray...While many things may seem impossible from a human standpoint, in the realm of prayer there are no impossibilities.” –Brother Andrew, founder, Open Doors

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER (IDOP) for the Persecuted Church
Last year, IDOP continued with theme ONE WITH THEM, living out I Corinthians 12:26 that "if one part suffers, every part suffers with it." It was also a breakthough for Open Doors Philippines for it was the first time in years that we personally led IDOP outside Metro Manila! Our brothers and sisters in a local church in Baguio joined the world last November 10, 2012 (2nd Sunday) in simultaneously praying for the persecuted church!
Thank you also for the other churches who particpated!

How to do IDOP:
1. Mobilize your church to pray for the pesecuted Christians on the 1st and 2nd Sundays of November. Allot a few minutes, or the whole Sunday program, in your worship service, afternoon fellowships or even in your personal prayer time. The idea is to simultaneanously pray for the persecuted church globally!
2. Pray through our IDOP Inter-active DVD where you can watch and play videos, read and share stories, and use other resources in it like sermons, ready-to-print materials for promotions and many more! Contact us on how you can get this for free!
3. Give us a feedback and encourage, challenge and inspire the 'free' church around the world! How has the Lord used IDOP bless or challenge your church or group?
