On November 6, 2022 your church can join believers worldwide to pray for the estimated 200 million Christians facing persecution for their faith.
The annual IDOP event is generally held on the second Sunday of November. Some churches hold it on other dates if more convenient.
A free Canadian resource kit is available each September at www.idop.ca. It includes many updated materials to help you prepare part of a worship service or a small group meeting. Sign up on that website to be alerted when new material for a given year becomes available.
The 2022 kit includes:
1. Video (professional, engaging and easy to access)
2. Bulletin insert & event poster
3. Country profiles: India, Algeria, Cuba, Nigeria, Afghanistan
4. Sermon themes and scriptures
5. Children's ministry materials
6. Suggested worship songs/hymns
7. Creative ideas for groups

Several partner groups organize the International Day of Prayer for Canada each year, including the EFC. See the www.idop.ca/about for the full list.
This event is also observed by other members of the World Evangelical Alliance. See their 2021 news release.
