Pray for Tajikistan - facebook page

Central Asia’s poorest nation, Tajikistan, has never recovered from the Soviet era. After five years of civil war following the 1991 Soviet collapse, a UN-brokered peace deal resulted. Secular forces dominate, but economic stability hasn’t returned. Tajikistan voted to allow its president to rule indefinitely. Each year greater legislative restrictions oppress the Tajik masses. Secular forces also dictate religious law. Although the constitution guarantees religious freedom, oppression is widespread. Mainstream Protestants are labeled “extremists” accused of spying on and dismantling Tajikistan’s political system. Meeting surveillance, interruptions, activity restrictions and literature confiscation are tools the government uses against Christians. Churches must register to be legal, a near impossible task.

Praise Report
Praise God for reports of small groups of people willing to come together to read the Bible together to find out who Jesus is (The Bible, Jeremiah 29:13).

Prayer Requests
Currently the government operates with power to repress, harass and intimidate its people. Pray that the love of Jesus will sweep through these authorities (The Bible, Galatians 5:1).
Pray for Christians who have experienced set-backs, harassment and forced closure of their ministries to know God’s grace and wisdom (The Bible, Acts 4:33).

Call to Salvation
Pray that the police and authorities who are called in to raid churches and Christian homes might be touched by God’s presence and begin the journey towards salvation (The Bible, Deuteronomy 29:9-11).
