Pray for Church Raided and Monitored by KGB Officials

[331] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Raided Church.

KGB officials walked into an ongoing church service on Sunday, March 11 and began taking photos and recording video. When church leaders protested, the officials said it was an official examination, though they did not provide documentation. The officials also walked around the church premises and collected Christian literature from various rooms. According to a local church leader, “They intend to conduct a religious censor examination for prohibited materials.” One of those “prohibited materials” is Josh McDowell’s More Than a Carpenter, which is banned in Tajikistan. This particular church has already received two warnings. After a third warning, authorities have the right to close the church. “Please pray that the Lord will give us the opportunity to keep freely distributing the Good News in our country and beyond,” a VOM contact wrote. “And also pray that we have the opportunity to have all necessary Christian literature for self-education and for evangelism.”
