A year ago the World Halal Forum resolved "to work towards a European Halal Regulations and Accreditation system, starting with a single country as a pilot project, with the country proposed being the United Kingdom".

This week, Britain's halal future will be shaped by the global halal industry when the Forum visits London for the first time. Delegates from around the world will gather on 10-11 November 2010 at Earls Court, London with the theme "Halal Products & Services - Going Mainstream".

Hospital trust rejects Bible ban

"A ban on bedside Bibles considered by an NHS hospital trust that feared the Christian holy books could spread germs has been rejected. Bibles in bedside areas could pose a risk of cross-infection if not cleaned properly, according to research studied by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. But the trust decided against banning the book in bedside lockers, opting instead to keep copies in holders and protective plastic covers that can be easily cleaned after each patient has used them."

Operation Nehemiah Prayer
  • Operation Nehemiah urges Christians to pray for the discussions taking place at Earls Court on 10 and 11 November 2010. We believe that Christians and others should be allowed to know what they are eating and have the freedom to choose. We are also concerned by the increasing infiltration of products and services prepared in accordance with sharia.
  • Praise God for the decisions made by Nottingham University NHS Trust to retain bedside Bibles, and by Woolworths in South Africa to reinstate Christian magazines.

    • An Uzbek Christian who had converted from Islam died earlier this year and was buried. The local Muslim leaders banned any Muslim from attending the man’s funeral. But one of his work colleagues, a radical Muslim who had been struck by the Christian’s words and way of life, attended the funeral anyway, ignoring all the threats and warnings. She was puzzled by such a hostile reaction to a man she knew to be “God-fearing”. At the funeral she heard the Gospel and decided to give her life to Christ. Pray for “F.” as she is now being disciple and growing in her new faith, that she will be strong in the face of opposition from the Muslim community.

    • Pray for hundreds of Christian, Yazidi and Turkmen women held in Badush Prison in Mosul, Iraq by ISIS militants. The women are reported to be raped daily unless they agree to convert to ISIS’s brand of Sunni Islam. The UN estimates that there have been roughly 1,500 Iraqi women and children from the Christian and Yazidi communities abducted by ISIS and then forced into sexual slavery. Ask our Heavenly Father to have mercy on each one of these women and children and to deliver them from evil. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Thu, Nov 2014 00:00

    • Give thanks to the Lord that, through the generosity of Barnabas Fund supporters, over 30,000 displaced Christians in northern Iraq are being assisted through four local partner organisations on the ground. By funding the distribution of food, blankets, hygiene items and other basic needs, Barnabas has enabled them to survive their first months of displacement. But their needs will be greater now, as the Iraqi winter has set in. Pray that God will provide. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Nov 2014 00:00

    • Cry out to the Lord for the estimated 200,000 Iraqi Christians and other minorities who have been displaced from their homes due to attacks by the Islamist militant group ISIS (also known as the Islamic State). Pray for all the displaced people, who have mostly lost everything they possessed. ISIS wants to eliminate Christianity in the territory it controls. Please pray for the Christians still living under its brutal rule. Ask God to protect them and give them courage and a hope for their future.

    • Heavenly Father, we pray for Iranian church pastors currently in prison because of serving You. We lift to You Pastor Behnam, in solitary confinement, afflicted by serious health problems, and facing at least 18 charges and a possible death sentence. We lift to You Pastor Matthias, accused of the crime of “spreading corruption on the earth”, which carries a death sentence. We lift to you Pastor Saeed Abedini from America who has received death threats from ISIS militants held in the same prison. We lift to You Pastor Farshid, held in the same prison as Pastor Saeed. We pray for their congregations left leaderless and desolate. Please be for each one their refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble (Psalm 46:1).
