India has falsely arrested 12 Christians
Be in prayer for Christians in India, with the persecution on the rise across eight states over the last three weeks.
International Christian Concern reports 12 cases of Christian arrests for false conversion charges in India, and 14 violent incidents in the 10th worst country in the world for the persecution of Christians.
Afghan Muslims conducting door-to-door searches for Christians
Open Doors encourages prayer for Afghanistan this month, posting an important video update from a Christian woman in hiding.
She says the Muslim Taliban is conducting door-to-door searches, and her Christian neighbors have disappeared.
Hunger is a big problem. The woman’s family has survived on one bowl of lentil soup for the last three days.
In the most dangerous country in the world for Christians, she testifies to her desire to worship with brothers and sisters in Christ, but that is entirely impossible at this point. She says, “Our faith is in Christ, and will remain so until our last breath.”
May Psalm 91 encourage believers in Afghanistan. “I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.’ Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler.’ … You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”
