Christian children in Laos praying

Dear Brothers & Sisters In Christ,

Please kindly pray for Laos (from CSW Reports) The landlocked south-east Asian nation of Laos doesn’t get a lot of attention in the international media. Nevertheless, Laos is home to a small but growing number of Christians.

About 150,000 worship at state-recognized churches belonging to the Roman Catholic Church or the Lao Evangelical Church, with at least 100,000 more Protestants attending unregistered churches. Most of the majority-Buddhist population is tolerant of other religions, but some local officials see Christianity as a ‘foreign religion’ and a threat.

  • praying_together_hand_in_hand-217x300Please kindly pray for the safety of Christians who have ‘disappeared’.
  • Give thanks for the release of three pastors who were detained earlier this year for making copies of a Christian DVD.
  • Pray for courage and comfort for Christian converts under pressure to give up their new faith.
  • Give thanks for the release of two Christians from Khammouan Province who were detained in 2012 for holding a Christmas celebration.
  • Pray for Catholics in the northern part of the country whose legitimate religious activities are still restricted.
  • Give thanks that some parts of the country have seen a drop in the number of enforced disappearances.
  • Pray for Christians in remote areas who are being pressured to leave their homes; pray for pastors to be able to visit them safely and encourage them.

Many thanks and may God bless you!

(Prayer request from Brother Danilo)
