Janette: Central African Republic

“The guns started firing, and we started running into the bush … as fast as we could.”

—Janette, Central African Republic

Join Christians around the world in a global prayer meeting for our persecuted brothers and sisters who boldly witness for Christ at any cost.

VOM’s 2020 IDOP short film, Janette: Central African Republic, is a dramatic portrayal of how persecuted Christians in the Central African Republic have been displaced from their homes and villages by civil war and Islamist violence.

But these courageous believers have also forgiven their persecutors and held fast to their faith in Christ. You and your church will be inspired to pray for and support Christians like Janette who have lost everything because of their Christian faith.

Use these resources in person or online with your family, group or church throughout November.

Resources will ship by Oct. 1. Please order by Oct. 21 to receive your resources before Nov. 1.

Inspire prayer for persecuted Christians throughout the year. With two prayer posters, you can hang one in your church or home and share one with a friend. The posters will serve as a constant reminder to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in hostile areas and restricted nations.

VOM’s Special Issue magazine is a great way to introduce your friends to the stories of our persecuted Christian family members. Each Special Issue includes a pull-out prayer map highlighting nations where Christians are systematically persecuted for their faith.

Inspire your congregation with a bulletin insert featuring specific ways to pray for our persecuted Christian family. These bookmarks serve as a handy reminder to pray for persecuted Christians not only on IDOP Sunday but also throughout the year. They are ideal for handing out in church or Sunday school, for using as bulletin inserts or for sharing with family and friends.

Prepare your family, group or church for the International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians by ordering a complete IDOP Resource Kit, which includes the following items:

  • 10 Janette: Central African Republic DVDs and guides
  • 25 Special Issue magazines
  • 25 prayer reminder bookmark brochures
