    Free resources for 2021

    New to praying for Christians in other parts of the world? It can sometimes be hard to know what to pray, or even where to start. But don’t worry – we can help!

    Fill out the form below to pre-order some quality free resources, including:

    • Our Open Doors Youth 2021 World Watch List map that comes with some special stickers you can use to help you pray regularly and more effectively. The map folds out to be an A3 poster and includes some stories, prayers facts and more.
    • The 2021 World Watch List youth leader session outline download will help you explore the places where following Jesus costs the most with a youth group / small group. Make sure you check out the downloads section below to get some extra videos and materials that work with the session. If you’re running a session with a youth group why not order a few of the youth maps to give out at the end of your time together too?
    • Plus there’s also a comic version of God’s Smuggler, the story of how Brother Andrew (the founder of Open Doors) started serving the persecuted church.

    Fill out the form and we’ll post out the resources to you asap (2021 resources will be posted early to mid Feb).

  • And When You Pray

    Free prayer guide!

    “If we understood the potential power of our prayers, we would be on our knees one hundred times a day asking Him for things that would turn the world upside down”
    Brother Andrew, founder of Open Doors

    We want you to pray

    Around the world over 100 million Christians live in places where their choice to follow Jesus puts them at odds with the world around them. They face everything from threats and intimidation to arrest, torture and violence. They don’t just ask us to pray for them, they depend on our prayers.

    “Your prayers were as a wall of fire around me; even when it was very cold, the Lord Jesus warmed me and when it was very hot, Jesus provided me with shadow.”
    Pastor Ilmurad, Turkmenistan

    Our prayers work. That’s why we want you to pray. And that’s why we’ve created a free guide to help you pray for the top ten places where Christians face the worst persecution. The guide is simple. It’ll teach you a bit about prayer, why we should pray and even give you specific facts, stories and prayers for Christians that are risking it all for Jesus.

    AWYP-Brochure-CoverWe might live thousands of miles from Christians in these countries, but as Brother Andrew says:

    “Our Prayers can go where we cannot. While many things may seem impossible from a human standpoint, in the realm of prayer there are no impossibilities.”

    Fill out the form on the right to get your free copy and start praying*.

    *In doing so we’ll also add you to our prayer and action emails (sent once a month) as well as send your our little magazine ‘The Cost’ (sent in the post 3 times a year).
