Pray for Russian Believers, Prohibited from Evangelizing

[252] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Russian Believers.

A new law that goes into effect on July 20 could result in stiff fines for Christians who evangelize in Russia. The law, approved by the State Duma, will make it unlawful for Christians to share their beliefs with others in their homes, online or anywhere outside a registered church building. While the law is intended to prevent acts of terrorism, Christians fear that they could be linked to terrorism simply by sharing their faith with someone through an email or in a public place. The penalty for breaking the new law is the equivalent of six weeks’ wages for an individual and more than twenty times that for an organization. Pray for members of unregistered churches, and pray that the Duma will amend the new law in response to public outcry.

Give our brothers and sisters courage to remain bold in their testimonies and protect them from false charges. We pray the Duma will amend this law to protect all Christians. In Jesus' Holy name I pray. Amen!
