A Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Canadians experience great freedom of religion compared to so many places in the world. In fact, it is hard for us to think that our brothers and sisters in Christ in other parts of the world are under attack. Churches meet in hiding, believers pray and worship in private, and many live in constant fear of arrest, beatings, or even execution. 

Several years ago, one of our associates was executed while leaving a prayer meeting in Asia. This brought the issue much closer to home for us at Outreach Canada. We continue to pray for the church around the world, especially those facing persecution. 

Sunday, November 6th, is International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. 

Today we offer a prayer, based on Ephesians 3:14-21, and a few suggestions for how to pray for the persecuted church...

FREEDOM 25 - India

Impacts of the pandemic in India have been devastating. 

  • Millions of day labourers and small business owners have lost their only source of income.
  • In desperation, women have turned to prostitution to feed their families.
  • A large population of underprivileged people are going underfed due to loss of resources and facilities.

The FREEDOM 25 Initiative will train and engage women who are on the streets in India to run community kitchens in their own neighbourhoods.

  • The aim is to pay women a daily wage allowing them to choose a different vocation for survival instead of prostituting themselves.
  • The community kitchens will then serve nutritious and hygienic food to the underprivileged population which will improve their immunity to further protect them from infections and be job ready.

Your gift of $25 provides enough food to feed a family of five for a full week. Larger gifts will help us open new community kitchens in new neighbourhoods.
