Pray for Kamal Wasantha, Church Leader Threatened

[267] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Kamal Wasantha.

Kamal Wasantha, a church leader who converted from Buddhism to Christianity, received death threats from a Buddhist monk for leading a church of 20 individuals and 15 families in Sri Lanka. The church has grown rapidly, and the monk has demanded that the church stop services or face “severe punishment.”  On January 5, the monk led a large mob armed with sticks, iron bars and knives. The church was destroyed, but Wasantha says that the church will not retaliate and will continue to meet together for worship and prayer.  Please pray for Kamal Wasantha and the church members.

  • Father, we pray for Kamal and ask that you will use his lack of retaliation to send a message to all who hear of this case. Let them see that Buddhism is not a religion of peace, as they claim, but they are inspired by the same father of lies that resorts to violence when he doesn't get his way. Please cause the church in Sri Lanka to thrive.
