A Christian father and his adult son were attacked by villagers while pumping water in Rajasthan state.
The two men went to the village water pump one evening for their nightly needs. A group of villagers were near the pump partying and drinking. They began yelling at the Christian men, saying, “You are Christians and have no right to have water!”
One of the villagers then punched the adult son. He and his father managed to run home but Hindu radicals and other villagers joined the drunks and

attacked the believers’ house with sticks, stones and axes.
The family was able to escape the house with minor injuries, but the water lines, water tank, pump and bicycles were damaged or stolen. The family’s pastor lodged a complaint with police against 26 of the attackers, who filed a counter complaint.
Let us pray.
- Pray for this family who continue to face threats in their village. Ask for healing, protection, grace and courage.
- Pray these two men would receive much care and support from their Christian family and community.
- Pray for provision. Ask God for justice.
