The 2019 International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is Sunday, November 3rd.
Here is this year’s slide presentation from the event’s sponsor,
Voice of the Martyrs.
We’ve added music to the presentation, and hope you will join us in praying … every day … for the safety and protection of our Christian Brothers and Sisters around the world who are suffering for their faith … every day.
We share this from “The Voice of the Martyrs:”

The Voice of the Martyrs presents the inspiring new movie, Tortured for Christ, a cinematic retelling of the testimony of VOM founder Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, as written in his international
bestseller “Tortured for Christ.” This movie was produced to honor the 50th anniversary of the book’s 1967 release.
Filmed entirely in Romania, including in the very prison where Pastor Wurmbrand endured torture and solitary confinement, this powerful film uniquely presents the story with live action rather than interviews. The dialogue is presented in English, Romanian and Russian (with English subtitles) to hold to the authenticity of this true story.
The movie opens in theaters on March 5, 2018.
Advance tickets can be purchased at www.TorturedforChrist.com.
“They could have kept their future, their homes, all their possessions, but they chose to sacrifice them, instead of denying Christ.”
We conclude this video series, produced by The Voice of the Martyrs, from their “i am n” campaign. This video features “sacrifice.”
“Sacrifice” is defined as “surrender of something for the sake of something else; the act of giving up something that you want to keep especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone; something given up or lost; an act of offering to a deity something precious.”
Image if you lived, everyday, with the danger of losing everything you have-including your life, and the lives of your loved ones-just by making the decision to convert to Christianity … or if “word got out” that you were a follower of Jesus …
“We left our homes, having nothing, and we lost everything, but we did not lose our faith in Christ Jesus.”
“If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.”
