Persecuted Church, The very hairs of your head are numbered




Jun. 16, 2017 | Uganda


Matthew 10:28-32 "Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven."



In the above passage of Scripture we have a command for the believer in Christ to not be afraid of persecutors who deliberately are destroying those who are born again Christians.
 With assistance from VOM, Moses will be able to support his family with a small carpentry business.

Pray for Moses, Facing Persecution from Muslim Family and Friends

 Moses, who recently left Islam to follow Jesus, has faced repeated persecution since his conversion. His family kicked him off their property and denied him access to his own land, Muslim friends rejected him and prevented him from working in his carpentry workshop, and local Muslims killed a cow he was caring for and even threatened to kill him. With VOM’s support, Moses is further developing his carpentry skills so he can continue to support himself. Pray that Moses will grow in faith and that his carpentry business will be successful. Also pray for the restoration of relationships with family and friends.

Pray for Six Christians Arrested on False Charges


Six Christian leaders were arrested on May 10 as they conducted an open air gathering in Mau, Uttar Pradesh.
 A local Hindu political leader reportedly bribed the police to have them arrested after area Hindus claimed the men were coercing people to convert to Christianity. The Christian men and their families have been mistreated by their Hindu neighbors in the past, being turned away from village activities and community marriage celebrations.
 The six men were reportedly released from jail and are awaiting their court dates. Pray that the men and their families will continue to share Christ’s love with their community, including those who have persecuted them. Pray that many Hindus will come to know Jesus as a result of their example and that the charges against them will be dropped.
