Daily Prayer - Sunday 19 August 2012
In the Central Highlands of Vietnam, the 43-year-old church leader of an unregistered house church, who is highly esteemed within the Christian community, was arrested in April and convicted of handing out anti-government leaflets “enticing ethnic minorities to commit wrongdoing” and “disrupting national unity”; he has been jailed for eleven years. Pray for this church leader, and ask the Lord to touch the hearts of the authorities and overturn the conviction. Pray that the government of Vietnam will cease seeing Christians as a threat and will put into practice the freedom of religion guaranteed in its constitution.
