Prayer is the most powerful way to support our brothers and sisters worldwide who are suffering for the sake of the gospel. —David Curry, Open Doors USA CEO

“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 requests in the app are submitted by Christian leaders, field staff and partners living in countries where it is difficult to be a Christian. Users can scroll through prayer requests and clicking the “Pray” button at the end of the request lets the persecuted Christian know that someone has thought about and prayed for them.
