Decree Requires Islamic Indoctrination of All Children

[171] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for children in Brunei.

In October 2023, the government of the Islamic sultanate of Brunei announced a radical change in education policy to be implemented from Nov. 1. All 2nd to 5th grade students, including Christian children, are required to attend one hour per day of Islamic instruction. This includes practicing Islamic prayers and studying the Quran. This decree from the sultan applies to public and private schools. Front-line workers ask for prayer that all Christian children in Brunei will be properly discipled at home and at church so that they will be grounded in God’s Word.

  • GOD'S WORD covers 6000+ years and is given to the all humanity ( 2 Tim. 3 :16 &17 ). So, what do the churches (?) teach without GOD'S WORD. How are CHRISTIANS supposed to grow without GOD'S WORD?? China is a terrible persecutor of CHRISTIANS and the few ( 9%) CHRISTIANS in Brunei are of Chinese descent. I humbly pray for many bibles to flood Brunie!!
