IDOP resources are designed to help you effectively pray for the persecuted. Globally, one in seven Christians live in places where they face a high level of persecution for their faith.

Many USA organizations (including the National Association of Evangelicals and the Institute on Religion and Democracy), also began a large promotion, though there were over 100 countries who participated in IDOP that first year.
