India

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

A shortage of rain has impacted rice farmers in India this year, who say the land suitable for planting rice is the smallest in three years. India is the world’s biggest exporter of rice, providing 40 percent of the world’s rice. The projected small harvest has already caused prices in India to rise. Today we declare new beginnings. A new beginning for farmers and food producers across India. Pray for an increased ability to provide food for its own population in this coming year. Praise the Lord He makes all things beautiful in its time. May this be a time for a beautiful and bountiful harvest in India (The Bible, Ecclesiastes 3:11).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

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. Although India is known as the world’s largest democratic country, according to the World Watch List, it is now ranked the 10th most dangerous place for Christians to live due to increased persecution. Although the Indian constitution allows for freedom of religion, many Indian states have adopted anti-conversion legislation. Converts to Christianity are under constant pressure to reconvert; they are often physically assaulted and sometimes killed.
