Faithful Pastor, Family Targeted by Radicals

[261] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Pastor Nithin and Sathya.

Pastor Nithin has led a church in Karnataka state, India, for 15 years. For years, small attacks like broken windows and official warnings about loud singing or the display of a cross occurred. However, a local man who lives near Pastor Nithin’s house joined the radical Hindu group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and began to create problems for the church. During a Hindu festival in September, Pastor Nithin was arrested for forced conversion and jailed for 2 days. His wife, Sathya, and their son were also charged but not jailed. The church has been barred from meeting, and Pastor Nithin can visit only a few members of the church due to ongoing threats against him. Members are working on obtaining documents that will allow them to reopen the church. Since the closure, no church members have denied their faith despite intense pressure to do so.

  • LORD, may this congregation be born again if not and realize through Your Holy Ghost that the church is not a building but Your collective body and individual believers. I pray they would worship You in spirit and truth in their bodily temples being sanctified in the A1611 Bible. I pray the persecutors repent of their sins. In LORD Jesus Christ's name

In the past you've sent your disciple Thomas 2000 yrs ago to preach the gospel in India starting from Kerela to Chennai. People who believed were saved I pray the gospel will be heard throughout India .In Jesus name I pray Amen.
