Government Prohibits Church from Meeting

[219] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Amparo Gallo and congregation.

A house church of 1,000 members has been banned from gathering for services by the Cuban government. In recent weeks, the government announced that churches in Cuba could begin meeting again in person on Sunday, Oct. 10. On Oct. 8, however, Amparo Gallo’s house church in Santa Clara received word from the government that it would not be allowed to meet for in-person services. Pray for God's wisdom for these brothers and sisters as they determine how to honor God amid the Cuban government's restrictions, and pray that the government will lift the restrictions.

  • Father God, human governments don't know that "God is not contained within four walls." His Spirit reigns in the hearts of Your people who've been forgiven by the blood of Jesus. You will make a way for them to congregate in different ways even in smaller groups. Help the people of Cuba to pray, keep their eye on you, and grow in Christ.
