Pray for Six Christians Arrested on False Charges

[252] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Falsely Charged Christians.

Six Christian leaders were arrested on May 10 as they conducted an open air gathering in Mau, Uttar Pradesh. A local Hindu political leader reportedly bribed the police to have them arrested after area Hindus claimed the men were coercing people to convert to Christianity. The Christian men and their families have been mistreated by their Hindu neighbors in the past, being turned away from village activities and community marriage celebrations. The six men were reportedly released from jail and are awaiting their court dates. Pray that the men and their families will continue to share Christ’s love with their community, including those who have persecuted them. Pray that many Hindus will come to know Jesus as a result of their example and that the charges against them will be dropped.
