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 & Pakistan: The dispute between India and Pakistan over Kashmir has led to increased tension. Observers fear it could lead to a spike in Islamic extremist activity. Pray that both countries would consider religious minorities and work to stop extremists.
Laos: Pray for Christians in Laos in the midst of restrictions on evangelism. In 2016, the communist Lao government passed a religion bill known as Decree 315, which aims to cripple efforts to spread the gospel, as it requires prior permission to carry out religious activity beyond a religious group’s building.

INDIA: GOD AT WORK IN OUR NATION
