Many of our brothers and sisters in Christ are enduring persecution in India. We have listed some of their stories below. Will you lift these dear ones up in your prayers today?

Lata received Jesus as her Saviour through the ministry of a Church Planter in Uttar Pradesh, India. When she told her Muslim husband, he was furious and said that Jesus was a mere prophet of Allah. He warned her not to follow Christianity.
16-year-old Geeta recently received Jesus as her Saviour. She started going to church, but her parents oppose her faith. To stop Geeta from going to church, they refuse to let her go outside at all on Sundays now.
Rupa is a new believer and attends a local church in her community in Goa, India. Her husband beats her because of her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Avinash received Jesus as his Saviour at a Children’s Bible Club. Local villagers are angry. They warn Avinash’s family that because of the boy’s faith in Jesus, the wrath of their gods will fall upon the entire family.
Rubina and her husband are new believers. They faced tremendous pressure to denounce Christ. So, they moved out of their community. Pray for God’s providence for this family as it is a struggle to make a living in their new community.
