- Pray for the safety of Pastor Barnabas and the other pastors; pray God will continue using these faithful Christians for His purposes, removing any fear they may have about persecution.
- Pray the authorities will be urged to take the threat seriously and will do their utmost to bring the perpetrators to justice.
- Ask God to continue overseeing the growth of His church in this part of the world, calling even those who would try to hinder religious freedom.
