Pray for Pastor Nikolai Levin, Charged for Disobeying a Court Order

[270] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Pastor Nikolai.

A Christian leader in Kazakhstan was charged in April with “failure to fulfill a court decision” after he refused to pay fines for leading illegal worship services in his home. In February 2014, Pastor Nikolai Levin was fined two to three months’ average wages for leading the illegal worship services, and in April he was fined an additional week’s wages for refusing to pay the original fine. In addition, he is prohibited from traveling outside the country. Pastor Levin is part of the Council of Churches Baptist, a group of unregistered churches that do not believe state permission should be required to meet for worship.

  • Father God, I pray you will relieve Nikolai from these fines: make a way for him to freely preach Your word. "Fines" come from a very greedy world that believes in the lies of the enemy and not the truth of Jesus Christ. I thank You, Father, that Jesus IS the Truth. Please encourage Your son of Your love and faithfulness over all his circumstances.

  • Lord,
    Thank you for Nikolai. It gives me great encouragement to hear of his boldness in the face of state opposition. The state has been one of the greatest opposers of Christ; we shouldn't assume that because they are the state that they are God-ordained authorities. Please strengthen him in his faith and provide for his needs.
