CFI has announced an international day of prayer for the persecuted Christians worldwide. The video, explains that there are over 200 million believers of Christ who are facing several forms of persecution in 105 of the world’s 196 countries.
It was since the summer of 2014, that the terror group Islamic State has been capturing large swathes of Iraq and Syria. These captured areas include many chiefly Christian towns also.

ISIS is an ultra-extremist terrorist group which has become disreputable for inhumane brutally as they wipe put every one who does not agree with the ideologically of the group, or else declines to renounce their religion and follow IS’ extremist brand of Islam.

According to this video staggering statistics depict that one Christian is martyred every 5 minutes because of their faith. CFI also estimates that more Christians have been martyred in the 20th and 21st centuries than in the previous 19 centuries combined.
