November 2022

November 1: The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is an annual, global event to pray for the persecuted Church. Many Christians around the world have never enjoyed religious freedom.  Pray for the worldwide Church to stand firm and unwavering in the face of persecution.

November 2:  As the Church prepares to observe the upcoming International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, pray for Christians worldwide who are prevented from practicing their faith, not just for a short time, but completely and indefinitely.

November 3:  Pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ to stand firm. Lord, protect them, and fill them with Your strength and hope. We pray one day soon their suffering will end, and they are able to boldly declare their faith without fear or intimidation.

November 4:  Dear God, we pray for Your persecuted children. They sacrifice their jobs, homes, freedom and lives to follow and serve You. Protect  and strengthen Your Church to stand firm despite fear; fear of violence, authorities, arrest, imprisonment, torture or death.

November 5:  Tomorrow, Christians worldwide will join in a global prayer meeting for our persecuted brothers and sisters who boldly live for Christ at any cost. Pray for these courageous believers who have forgiven their persecutors and hold fast to their faith in Christ. Jesus is their rock upon which they stand firm and unshakable.

November 6:  Today is International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. CSW joins churches worldwide in prayer for religious freedom. We stand as one church family with all Christians who are suffering for their faith.

November 7:  Lord, we lift the US Midterm Election into Your perfect, sovereign care.  Pray for God's spiritual guidance as we elect our state and local leaders. 

November 8:  Almighty God, we pray for Your Church in the US.  Empower and unite Your Church to rise up as a mighty voice for Your glory in the Midterm Election. 

November 9:  Knowing that we worship a God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, let us be bold in our prayers. Let us believe for great and mighty things for our nation, to bring glory for His kingdom.

November 10:  Dear God, we humble ourselves before You as our nation struggles against spiritual forces in the battle between good and evil. We pray for Your power to overcome evil, and for Your glory to be manifested in our nation.

November 11:  Pray for peace in our nation. Pray for the Holy Spirit to minister to hearts filled with rebellion and violence, and bring spiritual revival and healing. Lord, we pray for religious freedom and liberties to be protected in our nation.

November 12:  Almighty God, we humble ourselves before You in fervent prayer for spiritual revival in our nation. In this time of national turmoil and division, we plead for restoration and mercy. Have mercy upon this great nation as we pray for the healing of our land by the power of Your Holy Spirit.

November 13:  Our nation has drifted far from the Biblical roots which established our great nation. Pray for God's mercy to heal our land and bring hope to our weary cries.

November 17:  Pray for unity in the Pakistani Church, especially for understanding between denominations and the house church movements.

November 18:  Please pray for the Holy Spirit to calm the atmosphere of hatred in Pakistan and bring peace between religious communities. Seeds of hate are sown throughout Pakistani society and the environment for Christians is very dangerous.

November 22:  Tomorrow is Red Wednesday. Cathedrals, churches and public buildings around the world will light up in red to show solidarity with our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. Dear God, we pray as one for the persecuted Church, united by Your love into one worldwide family.

November 23:  The purpose of Red Wednesday is to join together and raise a strong voice in solidarity with the persecuted Church. Pray for the silence to be broken on the persecution of Christians, who are unable to speak freely, and who look to their brothers and sisters in Christ to speak on their behalf.

November 24:  Give thanks to our loving God on this day of Thanksgiving; for His faithful provision with which He has blessed you.  Pray for justice, peace and religious freedom for all persecuted Christians worldwide.

November 30:  Lord, we give thanks for the encouragement and peace which Your Holy Spirit brings.  Strengthen the brave hearts of our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ.  Keep them far from danger, and shelter them under Your wing.
