INDIA: Former Muslim and Former Hindu Lead Church

A married couple who started a new church in their city had to change venues recently because of persecution.

Hani, a former Hindu, and Chakama, a former Muslim, have actively shared their faith ever since coming to Christ and getting married.

The community where they were living kicked them out because of their bold witness, so they moved to another city. The church they planted in the new city has grown to more than 55 families, and they have also started two prayer meetings in surrounding villages.

Recently, community opposition to their church forced them to relocate, but they have not stopped meeting and the church continues to grow. Chakama’s family continues to threaten her for leaving Islam.

    Heavenly Father, I lift Hani and Chakama and their children up to You. Thank You that their hearts are on fire for You! I bless the work that they are doing, in Jesus name. I bless them to be filled with the boldness of the Holy Spirit. Clothe them each day in every piece of Your Spiritual armour – the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the belt of truth, the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and the shoes of the gospel of peace, that they may repel every fiery dart of the devil. Remind them that they are not wrestling with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world. May they be reminded every moment, that greater is He that is in them, than he that is in the world. May they stand firm in the Truth – that they can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens them. Let them be emboldened by the Truth – that the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, lives in and flows through and out of them in every situation!!!!! I bless them to speak Your Words, in every situation. I bless their Christian family to grow in size, and in faith, and in love, and to be a shining light and a witness of Your love and truth, in a world that is filled with hatred and lies. I bless them to grow in signs and miracles, by the Power of the Holy Spirit. May they hide Your Word in their hearts, that they may know and share The TRUTH. Please soften the hearts of their families, their community, their city and their country! Set them FREE! In the mighty name of Jesus!! Thank you that Your Word declares that if we ask anything in your name, that it will be done! Amen and Amen!!

    Heavenly Father Help and strengthen Hani and Chakama as they resist the devouring attacks of Satan. And to recognise the evil one’s Satanic schemes before they get so much as a foothold. That this is their common experience of sufferinf as hey seek to be front line soldiers for Jesus. Grant them to be filled with inner peace and joy every day of their lives. In Jesus name. Amen
