While Indonesia is officially secular, the most recent elections showed the increasing role that religion plays in politics. There were more politicians and parties running on Islamic lines, calling for a greater role of Islam and Islamic law in the nation. President Widodo, who was accused of being anti-Islam, is putting together a committee to vet public servants and identify those who support radical Islam. He believes that radical Islam is a threat to the nation’s democratic future.

Pray that God will give President Widodo wisdom during this current term in office.
Pray for his salvation (The Bible, Proverbs 2:2).
