IDOP 2023 - November 5, 2023

What is IDOP?

IDOP stands for International Day of Prayer: for the Persecuted Church. Every year, Christians around the world set a day aside for prayer for our sisters and brothers who are persecuted for their faith.

We encourage you to join us and be prayerfully engaged.

IDOP Canada is coordinated by a group of Christian organizations across Canada that are serving the persecuted church worldwide.
