Pray for the Families of Ashok and Kumar, Denied Access to a Water Well

[312] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Ashok and Kumar.

Local authorities have denied two Christian families the right to use a common well in their village in India. On April 5, the village chief announced that Ashok and Kumar could no longer use the local well because they had refused to contribute funds for a festival honoring Hindu gods for the second year in a row. The families must now travel a great distance to get water. Although Ashok is blind and his mother is elderly, people in the village show the Christians no mercy. Please pray that Ashok, Kumar and their families will stand firm in their faith.
