A new mobile prayer app developed by Christian persecution watchdog, Open Doors USA, gives users the ability to connect with persecuted Christians suffering for their faith. Available for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the Open Doors Prayer App was created to help strengthen and support Christian communities facing high levels of persecution with prayer and encouragement.
“Prayer is the most powerful way to support our brothers and sisters worldwide who are suffering for the sake of the gospel,” said David Curry, Open Doors USA CEO. “Through this app, we are excited to provide a simple and accessible way to pray for urgent requests from our persecuted family living in the most dangerous countries in the world for Christians.”
Prayer App Breakdown
The app highlights real stories of Christians in countries where persecution is most intense and information is ordinarily limited, including Afghanistan, North Korea, Nigeria and others. Users can watch videos, scroll through prayer requests and click “pray” to let persecuted Christians know fellow believers are supporting them. A “prayer wall” gives users the opportunity to write out their prayer, seeing other prayers in real time. Prayer requests can also be shared via social media, email or text with one click.
More than 360 million Christians live in places where they experience high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith. Operating in more than 60 countries, Open Doors supplies Bibles, training for church leaders, emergency relief and support to followers of Jesus facing persecution. Visit opendoorsusa.org
