Believers in a community in Bangladesh are requesting prayer after assailants destroyed their homes and attacked the women in the community. A local contact wrote that the aggressors had struck just the night before.
During previous attacks, the men from the village had fled, and the assailants left the women and children alone. This time however, the attackers targeted the women, leaving many injured.

The assailants then called frontline workers in the region and threatened to kill them if they visited the community again.
Afterwards, the army arrested village leaders, but they could not identify the attackers. VOM contacts have moved the believers into a temporary shelter, and the victims are living in a great deal of fear.
Let us pray.
- Pray that God will calm their hearts with his supernatural peace. Pray they will encourage one another in the faith and be strengthened.
- Pray that the authorities will take the case seriously and that the attackers will be found and will receive justice.
- Pray for wisdom as the frontline worker and the villagers make future plans for their lives and ministry. Ask for the Lord’s leading.
