India – Thugs Threaten Attack Against Churches

Some thugs in Gujarat held a rally and issued a statement to the district authorities asking them to stop church activities in the region or else they would take matters into their own hands. The statement they produced had a list of the names of 56 churches and pastors, and they gave the authorities three days to go into action.

In response to the thugs’ demand, pastors were told not to conduct church services or they would risk being attacked. And if that happens, the authorities will not protect Christians but would arrest the pastors. Several pastors have already been arrested and many churches have stopped meeting altogether. Pastors are also not able to visit people.

Pray that God will strengthen believers such that their faith will not waver even when they are unable to meet for worship and fellowship. Pray that every believer will instead grasp the opportunity to study and meditate on His word and seek a deeper intimacy with our Heavenly Father.

Pray that God will soften the hearts of these thugs. May they encounter the Lord’s goodness and mercy and turn to Him for salvation. Pray that Christians will be able to gather freely for worship.
