Pastor Threatened for Repairing Damaged Churches

[278] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Cuban Pastor.

A Cuban pastor has been repeatedly threatened and harassed for helping repair churches damaged in a 2018 hurricane. The Cuban government considers the repairs illegal because it does not recognize any church building constructed after the 1959 revolution. But the buildings, some constructed without walls or floors, have for many years served believers who wish to worship without government interference. The pastor and other believers work on the church structures overnight to avoid interference from authorities, but one of the pastor’s neighbors has threatened him with a machete because of the repair work he is doing. The pastor also has been denied car registration and has not been allowed to put a sign on his own church. “At this moment, the church in Cuba needs more attention,” he said. “Pray for us to remain faithful under persecution.”

  • We join with our brothers and sisters in Cuba in asking Your strength and grace for them to remain faithful in these difficult times. Grant the pastor the grace to be kind to the neighbor who is antagonistic, returning blessing for cursing and thus demonstrating what it is like to follow You. As You turned the heart of the Apostle Paul, turn his heart

  • 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.
