Pray for Pastor Perry and His Church, Attacked by Hindu Extremists

[266] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Pastor Perry's Church.

Hindu extremists attacked a church in Karnataka state recently, beating the pastor and burning everything in the church. Shortly after Pastor “Perry” and about 40 church members gathered for a special midday prayer meeting, more than 100 Hindu extremists rushed in and began beating the Christians with rods. They dragged Pastor Perry and his wife, “Glory,” to a nearby temple, smeared vermillion on their foreheads and tried to force them to worship a Hindu idol. Meanwhile, militants at the church set fire to Bibles, song books and musical instruments. When police arrived, the extremists accused the pastor of insulting Hindu gods and forcing Hindus to convert to Christianity. Pastor Perry was arrested and held for several weeks before being released on bail, and the extremists have threatened to kill him if he doesn’t leave the village. Pray that the charges against the pastor will be dropped and that church members will remain strong and courageous in the face of persecution.
