Let us pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in India, which is about 5% Christian. From April 11 to May 19, Indians will be voting for India’s federal parliament, and elections could have a profound impact on persecution of Christians. Attacks on the church have increased by 425% since 2014, when the Hindu hardliner Bharatiya Janata Party won a landslide victory. “One of the least reached countries on earth, 95% of Indians have never heard of Jesus! However, despite the intense persecution, Christianity is the fastest growing religion in India.” (prayercast.com)
Pray for the victims of sexual abuse in the Southern Baptist Convention—that they will find healing in Christ. And pray the churches would stop covering up their crimes, and instead would humble themselves before God and repent.
Let’s continue to pray for brothers and sisters in China. The government continues to shut house churches down and is even sending some members to “re-education camps”.
Pray for our church leadership—the NLT and the WHCC Council, as we plan for the future. We are preparing for independence from WHCC.
Pray for (1) our Young Adults who have entered the workforce, military, or who are looking for work; (2) our students in college; and (3) those students who have entered graduate school.
