 'Every 5 Minutes a Christian Is Martyred for Their Faith,' Persecution Watchdog Group Warns

A persecution watchdog group is warning believers that statistics suggest a Christian is martyred for their faith every five minutes somewhere around the world.

As part of this year's International Day of Prayer, which falls on Nov. 8, Christian Freedom International is encouraging all Christian churches to join them in praying for the safety of those who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ.

"I encourage you to pray for Persecuted Believers," CFI president Jim Jacobson said in a statement shared with The Christian Post on Tuesday.

"They are your Christian family throughout the world. Pray for their safety; that they would be emboldened to continue sharing the Gospel even in the face of persecution; that their persecutors would also come to know Christ as they observe the courageous witness of these believers."

CFI is preparing for the prayer event by offering a free resource kit for churches, which includes posters and bulletin inserts, Sunday school curriculum suggestions, Bible verses speaking about persecution, and other materials.

To put this in perspective, that is approximately 105,000 people calculated over a year's time.
