Pray for Christian Leaders Charged with Forced Conversions

[287] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Christian Leaders.

In September, six Christian lay leaders were invited to a man’s house to pray for his sick wife. While praying, a group of people arrived at the house, forced the Christians outside and beat them. They took the six Christians to the police station and filed charges against them, accusing them of forcing people to convert to Christianity. The Christians were imprisoned for one month but have since been released. Please pray that these believers will remain faithful. Pray that the charges will be dropped and that nonbelievers in their community will be inspired by their example.
