India – Lift Up 16-Year Old Nitish in Prayer

In August this year, 16-year old Nitish, a resident of Northern India’s Bihar state, was attacked with acid at 6.30am in the morning as he left the house to go to the market. As a result of the attack, Nitish suffered burns covering 60% of his body. With the help of a local pastor, Nitish was rushed to a nearby clinic for treatment. However, due to the severity of his injuries he was sent to a specialized burn unit in the city of Patna.

Although the motives of the attack are not officially known, a local pastor stated that, “there has been increased anti-Christian sentiment and attacks against Christians in the district are increasing.” Nitish and his brother, Sanjith, are both active in the local church and conduct daily prayer gatherings. The teen’s family came to faith in Christ two years ago.

Pray that Nitish will receive speedy and complete healing from his injuries. Pray for his concerned family and friends as they deal with the horrific nature of this attack.

Pray that those responsible for the attack will recognize the seriousness of their action, experience repentance and ultimately surrender their lives to Christ.

Pray for the ongoing ministry of the small church in this village. Pray that it will shine brightly for the Lord and be a blessing to all the members of the village community even in the midst of the heightened anti-Christian sentiment.
