    • Pray for Tandin Wangyal and M.B. Thapa, two pastors in Bhutan who were arrested on 5 March. The pair were invited by another Christian to speak at a ground-breaking ceremony for a new house in Samtse District, where they were arrested for “proselytising” coercively – an act that is illegal in Bhutan – and for not having obtained permission for the public gathering. The police later said that there was no evidence for the first allegation. The pastors were held without charge for 49 days; they were released on bail on 22 April but are still facing charges. Pray that as the church leaders face legal proceedings they will cast their cares on the Lord, and that He will sustain them (Psalm 55:22). Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 8 hours ago

    • Pray that the government of Kazakhstan will end its legal demand for the registration of religious groups, including churches. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, Heiner Bielefeldt, has said that this freedom “does not require state approval”, and that “communities which fail to meet the threshold set by the law or prefer not to be registered live in legal insecurity”. All religious groups in Kazakhstan were required to re-register under a controversial new religion law of 2011 that made it impossible for smaller congregations to gain state approval, and a number of Protestant denominations saw all their churches liquidated (i.e. lose their legal and financial status). Pray that all Christians in Kazakhstan will be given the freedom to meet and practise their faith together. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sat, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Denis Yenenko, a Christian father of three in Sergeyevka, Kazakhstan, was jailed for six days in April for refusing to pay a fine imposed on him for leading worship at an “illegal meeting”. Denis and his fellow-Christian Sergei Lantsov were each ordered to pay around a month’s average wages for “participation in the activity of an unregistered, halted or banned religious community or social organisation”. Another 33 Christians from the same denomination, which refuses in principle to ask state permission for their activities, were fined in the first ten weeks of this year for exercising their right to religious freedom. Pray for strength and perseverance for our brothers and sisters as they worship and witness for Christ under oppressive restrictions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Our God and Father, we praise You for calling to faith a 13-year-old boy in Tajikistan through the teaching of “Aigul”, a Barnabas- funded Christian worker, and that he has now led his Muslim mother to Christ too. We thank You for his witness to his mother: “He told me that all people are sinful and me too. He told me what I need to do so that God can forgive my sins.” We pray that You will establish them both in their new faith, and that the rest of their family will also put their trust in Jesus. We pray especially for her brother, an Islamic leader, that he will stop trying to prevent them from meeting with other Christians. We thank You for Aigul’s fruitful ministry and pray that You will continue to bless it. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Thu, Jul 2014 00:00

    • In some countries, Christian-run ministries are not safe from official opposition even when they provide a vital service to the community. A homeless shelter run by Aleksei Shchedrov, a young Christian man in Belarus, has been stripped of its legal status after what appears to be a campaign of harassment by the authorities. Aleksei was originally charged with leading an unregistered religious organisation, because there is a prayer room at the shelter. These charges were dropped, but during a series of inspections, fault was found with the shelter’s facilities, and the ministry was closed down on 7 February. Give thanks that Aleksei has continued to care for the shelter’s residents since it was officially closed, and pray that they will not end up back on the street.
