New Regulations to Affect Christians

[214] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Turkish Christians.

Following a June election, the president issued several decrees that will affect Christians in Turkey. According to a Turkish pastor, meetings in homes are now illegal. Though the law may be intended to hinder Islamic sectarian meetings, it will definitely hinder Christians meetings as well. Some churches also have police stationed outside during meetings — ostensibly to provide security — however, an unfortunate consequence is that some people are deterred from attending. “People are more fearful,” the pastor said. Pray the Holy Spirit can help people overcome their fear so they may step into new light. Pray for all those in ministry in Turkey.
