International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church-November 11

Will Your Church Pray on Nov. 11?

Dear Friends:

When we ask persecuted Christians in hostile and restricted nations how we can help and bless them, their first response is, “Pray for us!”

The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, on the second Sunday in November, is an important way of answering their request. It is a day for the worldwide Body of Christ to unite in prayer for members of the Body who suffer for their faith.

To assist your church in praying effectively on IDOP Sunday, The Voice of the Martyrs is offering the 2012 IDOP Church Resource Kit. The kit includes a 5-minute DVD that shares the story of Bounchan, who was imprisoned in Laos for almost 13 years because of his Christian faith. It also includes a variety of other resources to help your church “Remember those in bonds” (Heb. 13:3) on this important day.

While IDOP is set aside as a special day of prayer for the persecuted, it is vital that we remember our persecuted family throughout the year. A VOM prayer banner is available to help remind your church family to pray for the persecuted throughout the year.

Our brothers and sisters of the persecuted church ask that we pray for them. Will you and your church answer their request this November?

For those in bonds,
The Voice of the Martyrs

Today’s Quote: Faith and Job

Today, we were writing to a beloved customer in Virginia, when I noticed the quotes on this month’s calendar page here in the office.
Here’s what we wrote:

“… God has been faithful. And, He’s not done yet.
Our business principle really is from Genesis 12, that “I will bless them that bless thee.” And, we have been blessed. I am reminded of a quote on this month’s calendar page here in the office:
“Faith makes things possible, not easy.”
We like to say that “When we act on faith, we’re not acting.”
Also, at the top of the same calendar is Job 23:10:
“But He knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
WOW! That’s a good one!
Please pray for us, for God’s will to be done in our lives. To think, say, and do the right things. And, to be allowed to bless as many people as He will allow.”

Blessings,
Ted and Carol

 

Voice of the Martyrs: “Jesus-He Lived Among Us”

 

In the days of the Apostles, it was dangerous to follow Jesus… Today that danger remains. Now, in an unprecedented effort to reach the world with the message of the Gospel – and dangers facing today’s persecuted church…The Voice of the Martyrs is offering their feature-length animated movie, JESUS: He Lived Among Us

This story of Jesus unfolds through the eyes of His last surviving disciple, John the Beloved. Banished to the Isle of Patmos, the Apostle John recounts the incredible and often dangerous story of what happened when Jesus lived among us!
