Pray for Four Believers Arrested for Leading Others to Jesus

[417] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Christians Arrested for Teaching.

Four Christians were arrested recently after 16 villagers came to know Christ as a result of their teaching. The Christians were from a community that VOM helped two years ago when they were evicted from their village for refusing to give up their faith. They are charged with spreading a foreign religion that goes against the country’s traditional beliefs. Pray that the four believers will remain firm in their faith. Pray that their families and the rest of their community will continue to follow Christ and share his love among the lost in their district.
