Pray for Brunei - facebook page

New sharia laws say that you can be stoned to death for gay sex. The same punishment is applicable for women who are raped but construed as adulteresses, and also for people who convert from Islam to Christianity. Few people have made any comments concerning the extraordinary international backlash against the anti-gay laws and the virtually complete silence about the same plight faced by Christians.

Pray that people’s eyes and hearts will be softened and opened to recognize this injustice, and for courage to speak up about it.
Pray that the international community will also stand up for religious freedom (The Bible, Luke 19:37-40).

Brunei's draconian new laws don't just affect gay people, Christians are at risk too (Christianity Today)
