Turn The World Upside-Down

Pray For Persecuted Christians

The Open Doors ministry began with the bold prayers of one Dutch man, Brother Andrew. He knew that without God, his mission to smuggle Bibles could not succeed.

Today, the persecuted church ask for prayer more than almost anything else.

In the most desperate of situations, where almost nothing is certain, they know that God is more powerful than the forces that seek to discourage or destroy them.

“If we understood the potential power of our prayers, we would be on our knees a hundred times a day, asking Him for things that would turn the world upside-down.”
