Persecuted for faith: No one, nor any situation, can stop the advancement of the kingdom of God. Despite the persecution faced from terrorist attacks in Burkina Faso and the condemnations in Algeria, many people are turning to our Lord Jesus Christ and being baptised. And when the light comes, the darkness has to leave. Therefore, beloved, do not be afraid or discouraged. The Lord our God is with us and not one of his sheep will be lost. Pray for those persecuted for their Christian faith.
Bangladeshi converts face hardship for Jesus: When Bangladeshis begin following Jesus, they know their lives will be a struggle. Pray for the converts who face the threat of divorce or loss of custody of their children if their faith is discovered. Some believers are expelled from their villages while others have seen their homes and churches burned down. Pray that they will have joy and perseverance in these times. Pray that God will continue to be the light through the body of the church and that God's love and peace will fill and unite the body of Christ that they will be filled with a passion to share the Good News with the lost.
