The 2019 Indiana-Kentucky Synod Assembly voted unanimously to recognize the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) every year. The main date for the IDOP is on Sunday, November 6. Churches can also recognize the day of prayer on November 13, 20, and 27, as the whole month of November is a prayer emphasis for the persecuted church.
