International Day of Prayer for the persecuted church - IDOP 10/11/2013 Bologna Meeting

Tomorrow afternoon we'll have a joint prayer meeting in Bologna for the International Day of Prayer for the persecuted church - IDOP 2013 promoted worldwide by the World Evangelical Alliance.

This year the IDOP 2013 is organized in Bologna by
Nuova Speranza Church and Sasso Marconi Church,
and we expect that many other Christians from the area
will join us for this prayer meeting.

From the IDOP website:
Believers in countries such as Egypt, Eritrea, India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan and Vietnam face violence, imprisonment and even death because of their faith. There are other places in the world such as North Korea where acts of persecution take place, but we don’t see or hear of it. IDOP is a time set apart for us to remember thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who suffer persecution, simply because they confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
This year our focus includes the plight of Christians in India, who are suffering increasing persecution by militants who want a Hindu-only India. Please watch the Free to Follow video
