Hindu Nationalist Mob Assaults Christians; Police Arrest Believers Instead

[239] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Attacked Christians.

On Oct. 17, about 500 Hindu nationalists beat and stoned more than 60 Christians and detained them, accusing them of forcefully converting Hindus to Christianity. When police arrived, they watched the attacks occur, but then detained the Christians instead of those in the mob, who even vandalized vehicles belonging to the believers. Some of the Christians were taken to jail but have since been released on bail. Pray that those who were detained remain firm in their faith despite the persecution they’ve endured, and pray for those injured in the attack to experience healing. Pray that the Holy Spirit will help all the believers forgive their attackers. Pray also for the Hindu nationalists to be convicted by the hatred in their hearts, and pray for them to hear the gospel and experience God’s forgiveness and love.
