PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TO LIVE OUT THEIR FAITH IN SECRET

slide5

OPEN DOORS UK & IRELAND –2010

Strengthen those who have to live out their faith in secret. We especially remember Muslim-background believers who face pressure from family and community members to make them renounce their new-found faith. Give them power to persevere in following you.

ASK THAT GOD WOULD PROVIDE CHRISTIANS WITH THE TRAINING AND RESOURCES THEY NEED

Provide Christians with the training and resources they need to remain faithful and equip them to share the good news of Jesus with their Muslim neighbours. Provide economic support for those starting small businesses for those who have lost their jobs because of their faith.

PRAY FOR CHANGE IN LEGISLATION WITHIN THE COUNTRY

slide11

OPEN DOORS UK & IRELAND –2010

We pray also for a change in the legislation that only allows for possession of one bible for each person and prohibits the education of children in the Christian faith and the printing of Christian materials.

Raise up people of influence who will champion religious liberty and defend the rights of the oppressed.
