Tears of Gold resource pack

Portraits and Prayers resource

Tears of Gold is a powerful prayer resource for individuals and groups incorporating creative and reflective exercise. It helps us to not only pray for persecuted women, but also to see ourselves as God sees us.


  • Self-portraits of five amazing women, painted as part of trauma-care workshops supported by Open Doors.
  • The women’s stories and specific items for prayer.
  • Suggestions for creative and reflective exercises.
  • Full instructions as well as an information card about Open Doors and our work with women and girls.

We also recommend ordering the Tears of Gold concertina leaflet to read more about the women and continue to pray for them. If you’re using Tears of Gold with a group, order one leaflet for each person.
