17 Days of Prayer – Day 4

Another country with great persecution of the Christian Church is India. Christianity makes up around 2% of the population and majority of the population is Hindu. Pastors Frank and Gladys lead a work in India to plant churches across the three states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. However, in these states converting someone to Christianity is punishable by
imprisonment. Pastors Frank and Gladys also have an incredible ministry to orphans. They have 3 orphanages in Kolar Gold Fields, Bangarapet and Kannur – caring for hundreds of homeless children as they provide education, accommodation and food.

Today we are praying for:

  • Pastors Frank and Gladys, and their families – for health, strength, provision and protection as they lead the churches and orphanages
  • Protection from persecution from people, government and local authorities
  • A generation of Christian leaders to be raised up
  • Health and salvation over the orphaned children
  • Provision and funding for the 3 Orphanage Home

Acts 13:47-49
For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth." When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honoured the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed. The word of the Lord spread
through the whole region.

Deuteronomy 31:8
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
