Would you believe it? The World Cup is here!
Now, we know football isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and we also know that playing a tournament in a country with a very poor human rights record raises some major questions. But we also know that there are seven countries playing in the World Cup that are on the current Open Doors World Watch List. That’s seven countries, including the host nation Qatar, where Christians face persecution. And that gives us all an opportunity to pray, speak out and raise support for our church family in these places.
We’ve created some great resources to help you pray, including our World Cup Prayer Wall Chart (download a version you can print at home here…) and created a bunch of fundraising ideas too. But you can also get involved in our World Cup Fantasy League!
We know some of you will love pouring over the player stats and building the best possible team, so why not join our league and pit your selections against loads of others who will also be praying for Christians in the seven countries at the World Cup on the World Watch List? And, as a special bonus, there will also be an incredible special prize for the league winner too!
You can win a free ticket to one of the following 2023 events of your choice: Dreaming the Impossible, Limitless, Luminosity, Satellites, Summer Madness, Magnitude or the National Youth Ministry Weekend. That’s pretty good, right?
So, what are you waiting for? Just click this link to join:
