The world’s second most populous country, India offers a vast array of languages, and cultures. India gave birth to Hinduism, but hosts the world’s second largest Muslim population. Also the world’s largest democracy, India suffers with corruption resulting in great economic disparity. The leading Hindu nationalist party continues to bring unabated Christian persecution. This year, Prime Minister Modi’s re-election brings fears of his growing control and authority over the nation and the power of his Hindu agenda. India also moved to withdraw the special privileges of disputed territory, Kashmir. Protected by a militant branch of Hinduism, radical Hindus attack Christian Hindu Background Believers with impunity. Although the Indian constitution allows for the freedom of religion, many Indian states have adopted anti-conversion legislation.

Praise Report
Praise God that many Christians continue to fearlessly proclaim the Gospel and the Church continues to grow (The Bible, Mark 16:15).

Prayer Requests
Pray that the attitudes of the president and government towards Christians in India will be transformed, increasing commitment to compassion and protection (The Bible, Isaiah 30:18).

Pray for unity to grow between Christians in this nation. Pray that they will form partnerships and strategies to see the extension of the Gospel in their regions (The Bible, Ephesians 4:4).

Call to Salvation
Pray for those who persecute the Church. Ask God to release many dreams, visions and encounters with Jesus that bring people to faith (The Bible, Romans 12:14).
