Annual Day of Prayer

On November 1, 2020 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 It includes many updated materials to help you prepare part of a worship service or a small group meeting.

For 2019 the theme verse was: “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it” (1 Corinthians 12:26). Sign up on their website to be alerted when new material for 2020 becomes available.

Several partner groups organize the International Day of Prayer for Canada each year, including the EFC. See the 2019 media release for more details.
