“The best thing you can do is to pray.
“Please pray that we won't lose faith, that we won't give up trusting in God.”
– A priest in China
Pray with us
Praying for persecuted Christians
Please join Aid to the Church in Need as we pray for persecuted and suffering Christians around the world – and for all our benefactors and their intentions.
Prayer is a vital part of Aid to the Church in Need’s work. Please remember the needs of our suffering brothers and sisters around the world, as well as our friends closer to home.
Rest assured of the prayers and Christian solidarity of the millions of needy faithful around the world who you are helping with your commitment, love and prayers.
Please visit our Pray for the Persecuted Church page to find out how you can pray for persecuted Christians in your parish, including ideas for prayer groups and Days of Prayer.
Each day during Eastertide, staff in our national offices in 17 countries gather together at 12 noon to pray the Regina Caeli. You can use the audio files on the Praying the Regina Caeli page to join us in prayer at midday – and to say your own prayers during the day.
Praying the Rosary for the persecuted Church is a great way to show solidarity with our suffering brothers and sisters in Christ. And you can strengthen your faith by reflecting on the lives of Mary and Jesus while you listen to the Rosary.
Would you like us to remember your loved ones when we pray the Angelus each day? You can tell us the names of those you would like us to pray for on this page.
