Daily Prayer - Friday 01 June 2012
Pray for GKI Yasmin Church in Bogor, Indonesia, which has suffered intense persecution from the city mayor and militant Muslims. Its half-constructed building has been illegally sealed off since 2008, forcing the congregation to hold services on the street. Radical Islamists and public officials have tried repeatedly to stop the church from gathering publicly. In January the congregation went to plead their case outside the presidential palace in the capital, Jakarta. A spokesman said, “We came here so that the top leader of the country may help solve this problem, for love of the rule of law and the defence of diversity in Indonesia.” Pray that the government will act firmly against anti-Christian discrimination and hostility and maintain the freedom of Christians to worship.
