Pray for Laos - facebook page

Laos Christians have spoken out about what it means to follow Christ in their nation. In the middle of a church service, the police conducted a raid and arrested three church leaders. Later that evening they came back and arrested a further four Christians. The police then came back a third time and demolished the church’s stage, cut off the power lines to the church, destroyed their sound system and confiscated three mobile phones. The Christians were released from detention five days later.

Pray that Christians will have the courage to keep meeting despite the threat of this kind of harassment.
Pray for protection over church buildings and equipment as well (The Bible, 2 Thessalonians 3:3).
