Pray for Sri Lanka - facebook page

For centuries, Sri Lanka was a Buddhist kingdom that welcomed refugees from India fleeing persecution – Hindus, Muslims and Christians. However, religious extremism and persecution has been rising. Pray that Buddhist extremism will be exposed in this nation. It has been used to polarize society, to influence politics and the military unduely, and to marginalize and suppress ethnic and religious minorities. Pray that such extremism might create disillusionment and generate interest in the gospel (The Bible, 1 John 4:8).
