Christian Falsely Accused for Home Bible Study

[242] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Sri Lankan Believer.

A Sri Lankan Christian is facing assault charges after a confrontation with neighbors over his home Bible study. Six villagers confronted the Christian man on Jan. 26, 2019, threatening to harm him if he didn’t stop hosting Bible studies. After telling his neighbors that he had the right to hold the Bible studies at his house, the Christian man reported the threats to police. Four days later, a friend called to tell him that he had intercepted a group of villagers who were headed to his house to beat him and that one of the villagers had been injured during the ensuing scuffle. When the Christian man reported the incident to police, they arrested him rather than hearing his complaint, saying the injured villager had accused him of the assault. Pray that our Sri Lankan brothers and sisters will respond in love.

  • 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.
