Prayer Updates

Every two months we publish our Prayer Guide alongside our Frontline Faith Magazine. We also send a weekly Prayer News email with the latest news and prayer request from the field.

Prayer Groups

There are a number of groups around New Zealand who pray regularly for the persecuted church. You can join a group, or start your own!

Prayer Events

Our two main prayer events are A Dedicated Faith and International Day of Prayer. They're part of our fundraising events, but with a focus on prayer. We provide resources for you to run these events in your church and small groups.

Prayer Groups

Praying with others is a powerful way to bring about change for persecuted Christians and spiritual breakthroughs in nations that deny Christ. You can start small, with a friend or someone in your church community, by meeting and praying together. To start your own group or get connected to a group below please email enquire@od.org or call us on (04) 232 7055.
