Please Pray For The Christians And Evangelists In India
by Rik Charbonneaux
5/08/2017 / Prayers
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;" 1 Timothy 2:1 KJV
I heard on the news today that the current Christian Evangelism effort being conducted in the Country of India will cease within five years. This is the Indian Government's response to the rapidly exanding number of Christian converts that India is currently experiencing. As the Christian population in India is still a small minority, compared to the Hindu and Muslim populations, this action by the government will probably successfully occur with very few objections being voiced by the West and elsewhere.
It is so very sad that this part of the world reacts so negitively to the work of the Body of Christ to spread the Gospel. Religious freedoms that we take for granted in America are the envy of Christians in the 58 countries where the Holy Scriptures are banned under threat of punishment or death. For Christians to even exist in some countries requires the monthly payment of large fines, with failure to do so meaning confiscation of their properties by the majority religious sect in power, or worse. Christians are toleratd within India today, but in the future, who can tell.
As members in the Body of Christ, we have been praying in America for the relief of Christians under suppression everywhere, and we are not blind to the fact that the number of Christians persecuted continues to rise. We also know that without our prayers, some of the Christians sects would be in far worse straits by now, if not completely exterminated. The power of our prayers for others through our Lord Jesus is far greater than any of the evil endeavors in this world and shall prevail over them. So with all confidence and thanksgiving, please pray daily for the future of the Christians and Evangelists of India, and for relief from suppression of all Christians everywhere.
