Leaders in the Catholic church in Chad have spoken out against what they describe as increased intimidation of Christians under the guise of resisting radical Islam. The leaders said they feared for their lives after criticizing changes in the constitution, which says all government office-holders have to take a religious oath, which potentially excludes Christians from public responsibilities. The new constitution also abolished the office of prime minister and allows the current president to seek reelection for up to seven terms. Pray for Christians to have wisdom to know how to engage in public life to positively influence this nation (The Bible, Matthew 5:13-16).
