Former Orissa Prisoners Concerned About Finding Work

[218] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Garnath and Bhaskar.

Released from prison after more than 10 years of unjust incarceration, two of the men accused of murdering a Hindu leader wonder how they will now provide for their families. Over the course of several months last year, all seven men originally accused of the murder were granted bail by India’s Supreme Court and released from prison. They had been in prison since 2008, when they were accused of killing a Hindu priest and sparking a massive riot that left 120 people dead in Kandhamal district, Odisha (formerly Orissa) state. Recently, two of the former prisoners, Garnath Chalanseth and Bhaskar Sunamajhi, told a Christian worker they are unsure how they will be able to find jobs and support their families since many in the area are still angry at them. Bhaskar told the Christian worker that he is afraid to go into the forest because of the risk of being attacked. Pray that all seven men will find work and community support.

Lord, they have suffered so much and lost 10 years of their lives with their families. All they ask is that they would be able to provide for them now and be able to get jobs. Please grant them this request. In Jesus name, amen.
