Village Bans Buddhists from Selling Food to Christians

[209] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Village Christians.

Authorities in a Buddhist village recently established a law forbidding Buddhists from hiring Christians for work and from renting or selling anything to Christians. As a result, believers in the village are unable to buy food. Every day, village authorities pressure the Christians to return to Buddhism, promising that if they do they will be able to buy food again. The believers, however, are standing firm. “This is not a game,” one Christian replied. “We were baptized. We believe in Christ 100 percent and we will die believing.” When a Buddhist vendor sold a banana to a Christian recently, he was detained for three days and fined the equivalent of $65. The man later decided to become a Christian, asking another believer to teach him the Bible and baptize him, because he saw that the Buddhists were wrong. Pray that this man grows and stands firm in his faith despite the persecution he will likely face. Pray that all believers in the village will love those who persecute them and inspire other Buddhists to learn more about Jesus. Pray for VOM’s efforts to provide these believers with food.

  • Thank you, Lord for using the evil of the Buddhist enemies of the cross, to win this man to faith in Jesus!! Thank you for judgement day, when all becomes clear. Before that great and awful day, lead the enemies of the cross to repentance, or they will be tormented forever more. Grant an extra measure of grace that we may spread the good news.
