~Scripture Sentence~

“The water that I will give,” says the Lord,

“will become in you a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

(John 4.14)




O God, the fountain of life,

to a humanity parched with thirst

you offer the living water that springs from the Rock,

our Saviour Jesus Christ:

stir up within your people the gift of your Spirit,

that we may profess our faith with freshness

and announce with joy the wonder of your love.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

open doorsWhat is it like to be a Christian in the Middle East?

To simply have faith in Jesus can bring serious danger – and today, the existence of Christianity in the Middle East is at risk like never before!

In Iraq, more than two thirds of the Christian population have fled the country after decades of war and violence.

In Syria, religious leaders estimate around 40% of Christians have left since the beginning of the civil war in 2011.

And in Egypt, attacks on Christians and their families, communities and churches continue, often with devastating results.

Open doors is standing with believers in the midst of the chaos.

We invite you to journey with us as we explore what Dangerous Faith looks like in these nations today.
