Pray for Church Members Recovering from an Attack

[265] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Attacked Church Members.

On Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017, three Buddhist monks and two other men interrupted worship at the Lighthouse Church in Pupuressa, threatening the congregation and asking the pastor if he had government approval to worship in the building. They then dragged the pastor outside to beat him and assaulted a church member who attempted to intervene. Pray for the pastor and the church member as they recover from the attack. Also pray that the church will be emboldened by the attack and will become an even brighter light for Christ in the community.

  • Father let these believers rejoice and be glad, for their reward in heaven is great; for in the same way
    the prophets were persecuted who were before them. Let them rejoice in their sufferings for your
    sake, as in their flesh they do their share on behalf of Christ's body, which is the church, in filling up
    what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.
