Pray for Kazakhstan - facebook page

A large country the size of Western Europe, Kazakhstan is the world's leading uranium producer and the economic leader of Central Asia. Soviet-era nuclear testing and toxic waste dumping plagues the nation as well as elevating drug addiction levels and HIV/Aids rates. Despite the Soviet’s best attempt to stifle the Islamic preference of Kazakhstan, it resurged after the Soviet era. More legal restrictions are being imposed. Radical Islam has already been evidenced in Kazakhstan. Unregistered Protestant churches and their Believers suffer the most persecution. In a surprise move, president of 30 years, Nursultan Nazarbayev, resigned in March this year, putting in place his successor. However, the relationship between the two men has deteriorated during this year resulting in political turmoil.

Praise Report
Praise God that Christian people continue to meet for worship and fellowship despite the threats of intimidation and persecution (The Bible, Acts 2:46).

Prayer Requests
The number of court cases against Christians has dramatically increased this year. Pray that court cases will be dropped, and that God will provide financially for any fines required (The Bible, Philippians 4:19).
Bribery and corruption is pervasive, including payments made for favorable court rulings. Pray that sweeping changes might start to expose corruption (The Bible, Jeremiah 22:3).

Call to Salvation
Pray for the salvation of the new president and his family (The Bible, Psalm 80:3).
