How to pray

  • For the huge number of indigenous church planters, evangelists and social workers sent out in recent decades to continue
  • For first-hand reports of many new house churches in the north to keep coming in
  • That leaders would uphold the constitutional right to religious freedom despite the influence of extremist Hindu groups
  • That the church would remain strong in the face of persecution, holding to the certain hope we have in Christ 
  • That the rapidly growing need for trained leaders, evangelists and missionaries would be met through Bible colleges and correspondence courses
  • For our partners who are training future leaders, witnessing to many through TV and radio broadcasts, and supporting orphans and disadvantaged women
