This is a petition site that anyone can use specifically for petitions to help Christians. You may put on petitions for Christians and we especially welcome petitions for Persecuted Christians and those who are being challenged in their faith! We welcome petitions for home and house churches, and the right to freedom of religion. We also hope for petitions to help teens and college students to establish independent interdenominational student worship centers. DOES CONTACTING YOUR U.S. LEGISLATORS MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS? Recently published data reveals that citizens have more power than they realize. The report states “The most influential advocacy strategies for swaying an undecided depend on personal communications from constituents.” I hope this encourages you that your efforts to speak out for Persecuted Christians DO MAKE a DIFFERENCE. Another finding is that form letters are not nearly as influential to Members as personalized messages.
Open Doors provides form letters for our advocacy campaigns as we do not expect our supporters to know all the details of each bill, resolution, or letter we support. If you have limited time, sending the form message is better than not taking action. BUT…if you really want to maximize your impact for persecuted Christians, please take a few extra minutes to personalize the message before you send to your legislator. This is done by simply clicking in the message box and adding or editing the form letter. The easiest way to personalize the message is to explain at the beginning of the letter why you care about the issue. You can leave the remainder of the form message if you so desire.
