Pray for Five Christians Arrested at a Christmas Celebration

[278] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Arrested Christians.

Four Hmong Christians and one Khmu Christian have been in prison since Dec. 30, when they were arrested for hosting a Christmas celebration without the permission of village authorities. One of the men had also showed the JESUS film on a projector to the whole village and started to evangelize in public. He even invited people to accept Christ publicly, which is also prohibited. Police fined each man 2,500,000 kip (about $300) for bringing four trucks into the village without permission, and no one has been allowed to visit them. Pray that these five believers will remain strong in their faith and will be a light for Christ while in prison. Pray also for their wives, who must care for their families alone and are responsible for bringing food to their husbands in prison.

  • May each pray Psalm 51:
    Create a pure heart in me, O God,
    and put a new and loyal spirit in me.
    Do not banish me from your presence;
    do not take your holy spirit away from me.
    Give me again the joy that comes from your salvation,
    and make me willing to obey you.
    Then I will teach sinners your commands,
    and they will turn back to you
