Please Join Us Today in Prayer
We believe in the power of prayer to heal sickness, to provide for families, to surround believers with a hedge of protection, and to change lives for the better. God’s Word tells us that all believers can go boldly unto the throne of grace in times of need, whether those needs be our own or those of others. Please join us in praying for others around the world.
Who We’re Praying For Today
India: Saba (anonymized) is a Christian widow and mother of three from a remote village in India. She’s part of a group of persecuted Christian women who set up a small dhaba (a cafeteria) to help them support their families. However, they are not able to earn a basic living from it yet. Open Doors’ partners in the field have connected with the women to help them renovate, as well as provide resources and direction to help increase profits and sustain their business.
Pray for the success of Saba’s cafeteria business and ask God to bless the work of her hands to help other persecuted believers in the area.
India: Pray for Pastor Nallamuthu Samuel and his church which was demolished. suspected radical Hindu nationalist in a village called Kongalnagaram, located in India’s Tamil Nadu state. Pastor Samuel, head pastor of Grace Gospel Church, explained that a mob of nearly 30 individuals attacked the church at around midnight on January 1, 2020. Three church members, who were sleeping inside the church, were awoken when the mob began smashing the widows of the three cars parked in front of the church. According to local Christians, the three Christians quickly fled the mob, fearing for their lives.
After damaging the three cars, the radicals turned their fury upon Grace Gospel Church. As a result, some $3,500.00 in damage was done to the church building in addition to the damage to the cars. Read more on International Christian Concern.
