Release International Prayer Shields, India and Laos
DAILY PRAYER SHIELD
Prayers For Our Persecuted Family.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to pray for our persecuted family so we produce a daily prayer shield which gives a specific need that you can pray for each day. You can see today’s prayer, plus those for the last 6 days, below. You can also sign up using the form above to receive our Email Prayer Alert which we send out whenever we become aware of a specific and immediate situation which requires urgent prayer.
In India, house church leader Podia Madkam, who is a widower, had three daughters kidnapped by tribal villagers in Ejariguda (see previous prayer) ten years ago: they remain missing. Pray that Podia and his daughters will be reunited.
Please pray for three Christian families in Ejariguda village, Odisha state, India, who were beaten and their homes destroyed because they had refused to join in with traditional festivities.
Pray for believers in Madhya Pradesh, India where persecution against Christians has increased dramatically since new anti-conversion laws were passed last year. Within six months, at least 47 churches had been forced to close.
A third of India’s 28 states now limit or prohibit religious conversion. Religious freedoms are declining. Pray for a reversal in this trend.
Many Lao Christians are a tiny minority in their villages. Pray that God will equip them to share their faith, even in the face of hostility. And pray that the Lord will add to the number of believers in Laos daily.
Bounsaen is 101 years old and is still heavily involved in leading a 500-strong church for Khmu ethnic minority believers. Join him in praying that the young people of Laos will experience the love of Christ.
Pray for new believers Phan and Yun. They were evicted from Phan’s parents’ home when the couple turned to Christ. Local Christians in Laos are supporting them.
