A 2014 Pew Study reports, Christians are the most persecuted group in the world. In 2013, a Vatican spokesman reported 100,000 Christians are murdered each year. Churches are regularly burned in Nigeria, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Iraq. Christian pastors have been jailed and beheaded.
This Prayer March is not political, but rather an appeal to God and humanity to stop the desecration of human life. Churches and other interested organizations are invited to participate.
