The global website for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP, will open 12 October 2006, one month before the IDOP Day 12 November. Some countries will pray one Sunday earlier or one Sunday later but 12 November is the most common day for IDOP in the world, says Johan Candelin, global coordinator for the IDOP. IDOP has become the biggest one-day prayer event in the world and this year it is estimated that Christians in more than 130 nations will pray both with and for the persecuted Church.
