International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

The first two Sundays of November are set apart to remember and pray for the persecuted church. Today’s greatest untold story is that more than 100 million Christians worldwide face persecution for their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is a time set apart for us to remember our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who suffer persecution, simply because they confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

Laurel Knob Church will observe the IDOP on Sunday, November 5th, at the 11:00 AM worship service.

Every month, 322 Christians are killed for their faith in Jesus Christ.

Every month, 214 Christina churches and properties are destroyed.

Prayer is the number one request from persecuted Christians.

In America, more than 52 million attend church on a weekly basis, we can make an impact through our prayers, service and giving

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (KJV) 9  ..My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.   Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. Dr. Jim Rash , pastor invites you to Laurel Knob Baptist Church.
