Stand Up Sunday

On the 3rd of June 2012, Open Doors invites you to stand up and say enough is enough. On this day, they are encouraging Churches across Australia to join  in Stand Up Sunday, supporting Christian brothers and sisters in Iraq. On that day Christians are urged to:

1. PRAY specifically for what is happening in Iraq, trusting that God would strengthen the believers there.
2.GIVE to support placement of Christians who have had to flee their homes and livelihoods because of threats to their lives and families.
3.WRITE to the Australian Government who gives millions of dollars in aid to Iraq to encourage them to act. We want them to ensure there are better safeguards in place for Christians who want to stay and be a witness in Iraq.

Open Doors says: “1 Corinthians tells us: “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it.” We as Christians have a moral responsibility to speak out against injustice.”
