Villagers Threaten to Kill Christians

[187] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Christian families facing threats.

A community in Laos blatantly told the four Christian families living among them that the only way to get rid of Christians is to kill them. In an effort to get the Christians to leave, villagers have illegally logged all the trees on the property of one of the Christians. When the village faced drought and famine in 2019, village leaders purposely did not include the names of the Christian families on the list of those who would receive government assistance. When one of the Christians complained, village leaders told him the Christians were being stubborn by not leaving the village even though most of the village doesn’t believe their “foreign religion.” They added, “Right now, the only way to get all of you to leave is to threaten to kill you. Letting you Christians in this village is a waste of land here.” The Christians do not want to leave their homes, so pray for this situation to be rectified.

  • Father, from man's perspective, our Laotian brothers and sisters in-Christ face many insurmountable obstacles. You, however, are more than able to tear down the barriers that lie between them and the other villagers. We pray toward that end and intercede on their behalf that You'll continue to provide for their spiritual, emotional and physical needs.
