According to Christian leaders in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a significant increase in attacks on Christians is part of a planned campaign by Hindu nationalist leaders.

Every day, four or five churches are attacked, according to the leader of a church planting network and the number of arrests of Christians is unprecedented. In addition, the offices of some Christian organisations have also been attacked.

The attacks, the Christian leader explained, are the result of rapid church growth in the region. House churches have grown dramatically, with several serving thousands of members each week. “The church is bigger than the Hindu nationalist leaders knew” he said. “The church has become too big to ignore”.

  • Praise God for the powerful work of His Holy Spirit, in growing the church in this Hindu stronghold.
  • Pray for the strength and endurance of those facing persecution. Pray too for effective discipleship of new believers in areas where persecution is severe.
  • Ask the Lord to work mightily in the hearts and minds of those who currently oppose the Gospel, especially those in authority. May they be struck by the witness of His rapidly expanding kingdom.
