Muslims Intimidate Church and Demand Pastor's Arrest

[293] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Church Facing Intimidation Tactics.

A group of Muslims are demanding that police arrest a pastor, after he and other believers spoke to authorities about the construction of an Islamist school next door to their church. Members of the church, most of whom are Christian converts from Islam, became alarmed when they learned about the new construction because they realize how offended Muslims are by those who leave Islam for Christianity. “Their intention is clearly to intimidate our church,” a church leader said. After church members informed police of their concerns, the Muslims began protesting and demanding that police arrest the pastor. Pray for these believers and for the safety of the church.
