Eight Christians Arrested During Church Service

[325] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Subash and Arrested Christians.

On Sunday, April 29, about 25 police officers and Hindu activists burst into a church service and arrested eight Christians, accusing them of forcing Hindus to convert to Christianity. While five of the believers were soon released, three Christians from the same family — Subash; his wife, Sarah; and her sister, Lydia — were detained for weeks until finally being granted bail recently. Subash and his wife have ministered in their village for years. According to a VOM worker, a Hindu group called Hindu Vidhinyay Parishad (HVP) is believed to be behind the arrests. The HVP is a legal group associated with the nationalist Hindutva movement. Pray that the case against these three believers will be dismissed.

  • Lord please bless these faithful believers whose heart is to move your Word. Remove the barriers that would prevent them from doing your work. Please provide them with freedom that they can be with their friends, families and loved ones supporting each other in your work. Remind them that greater is He that is in them than he that is in the world.

  • Our Father, thank You for remember Subash and artested Christians in India. Please let the case against them be dissmissed. Please be merciful and send calls of faith to the men of HVP and Hindutva movement and save them "for what is the hope of the godless and polluted, even though he has gained, when God cuts him off and takes away his life?"

  • Father, Bless this brother and two sisters who have been faithful to you over the years. Please bring them through this and give them thankfulness for the testing of their faith. Let their witness display to their Hindu neighbors the emptiness of their religion. Bring them to victory so it might weaken members in the HVP.
