Government Enforcing Ban on Children's Religious Education

[273] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Church Teachers of Children.

Government authorities in Tajikistan appear to be enforcing an existing law that prohibits religious instruction for children. According to Christian contacts in the country, officials from the KGB and the Committee of Religion visited several churches recently, issuing written warnings against children’s religious education. Although the law prohibiting religious education for children has existed since 2011, it has been enforced mainly on Muslims until now. These recent warnings, however, have caused concern among church leaders. Pray that those currently teaching kids about God’s love will be able to continue their important work. Pray also that church leaders will see the need for addressing the spiritual needs of children.

  • Your Word has said that we need to obey God rather than man, so give wisdom and power to the church leaders to know how to continue to teach children about You. Build Your church among the little ones whom You said must be allowed to come to You. Burden the parents to take responsibility themselves for bringing up their children in the things of God.

  • 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.
