Last November, we invited your family to take part in IDOP 2016: Bringing You Closer to Bhutan and Sri Lanka. Continue to pray for the Persecuted Church in Bhutan and Sri Lanka by having a:

FAMILY PRAYER TIME!
1. Open in prayer.
2. Praise the Lord through songs.
3. Read Psalm 31.
4. Ponder on God's word together:

- Picture it. Visualize the scene in your mind.
- Pronounce it. Say it aloud-each time emphasizing a different word.
- Paraphrase it. Rewrite the verse in your own words.
- Personalize it. Replace the pronouns or people with your own name.
- Pray it. Turn the verse into a prayer and say it back to God.
- Probe it. Ask questions.

Helen Berhane, a believer from Eritrea who was once imprisoned for her faith, said: "Remember that the walls of Jericho came down because of praises. If we keep complaining, we cannot win. Instead we must continue to pray, praise and sing."

In November 2015, many believers took part in the International Day of Prayer - the global initiative of simultaneous prayer meetings and intercession for the Persecuted Church - and gave thanks to God for how He is building His church for His glory.
