Government Restricts Bible Imports as Need Grows

[270] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Christians Needing Bibles.

As the government tightens its control of religious life in Cuba, Christians there expect it to become more difficult to get Bibles into the country. And the need for Bibles continues to increase as more people come to Christ through the faithful witness of the local church. Over the years, believers have gotten Bibles into Cuba by boat, by individual hand delivery and by government-approved shipments. This year, however, the government has stopped one of the ways Bibles were being imported, so fewer Bibles will be available. Please pray for new, creative ways of getting Bibles to Cuban Christians, and pray for all believers there as they face tightening government restrictions.

  • Psalm 1
    4 Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
    5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
    6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.

  • FATHER, i pray you look at the Cuban Government and see them for what they are blind. They restrict Bibles that which is good n nothing is bad in it yet they persecute it as a common criminal.

  • LORD, i pray that these Cubans receive your Word one way or another. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Rom. 10:17 KJV. If they cannot hear they cannot know for a blind and deaf man most definitely will have troubles believing if he is new. Thus i say and pray that your ppl get your Word so that they may be free and live.
