Wednesday, March 01, 2006Prayers for February 28, 2006
"I will love You, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies."

Pray for INDIA
INDIA (Gospel for India/Compass Direct/agapepress)
According to Gospel for Asia (GFA), the level of persecution against Christians in India has reached new levels in early 2006, as Hindu extremists work to incite violence against believers. The fight centers on Hindutva, literally "Hinduness," a growing ideology that has a purely Hindu nation as its goal. At a recent large rally, Hindu nationalists called on the states to make their own anti-conversion laws. Please pray for the following situations:
1. On February 17th, a band of radicals destroyed a church building and Christian school in Kota, District of Rajasthan State. (Gospel for India)
Pray God will put a hedge of protection around all His faithful ones in India. Pray the Dalits, who know God's great love for them, will share their faith in Jesus throughout all India. Pray the Holy Spirit will open the hearts of many Hindus to the reality of the gospel.
Pray for NIGERIA
NIGERIA (Compass Direct/ASSIST News Service/Religion Today)
Christians and churches have been the subjects of recent violent attacks. Please pray for the following:
1. The Nigerian government last week said intelligence agents had found that Kano state in Northern Nigeria is asking foreign Islamic governments for help to train militants in"intelligence" and "the practice of jihad." (Compass Direct)
Pray the Lord will comfort all those who mourn for their loved ones. Pray God will give all Christians in Nigeria His special power and grace to forgive their attackers. Pray God will convict the vengeful Christians of their betrayal of Jesus' love for them and all people.
Pray for PAKISTAN
PAKISTAN Violent protests against the cartoons of Mohammad that targeted Western businesses and institutions have spread to Christians who are seen as followers of a Western religion. Please pray for the following:
1. On February 13th, Muslim college students and Islamic militants vandalized missionary-run Edward's College in Peshawar, smashing windows in various buildings. Two days later protestors in Peshawar damaged St. Michael's Convent School, St. Elizabeth's Girls' College, and a mission hospital run by the Church of Pakistan. A United Presbyterian girls' school in Kasur was also damaged by a mob of several thousand Muslims. (VOM Canada)
Pray Christians in Pakistan will bless the Lord with their faithful witness to His amazing love for His enemies. Pray moderate Muslims all over the world will speak up in protest against the evil violence of Islamic extremists. Give thanks to God Yousaf Masih has been released, and pray God will protect him from any retaliation by the Muslims.
