Pray for Pastor Jackson Muliku, whose church in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, was attacked by a Muslim mob on Thursday 18 February during a prayer meeting.
While no injuries were reported, the attackers destroyed the inside of the church as well as another parish building.
In the past, Muslim youth have thrown rocks at the church to intimidate church members.
Though there is religious freedom in the country, it is extremely difficult for Christians to obtain building permits, and Muslims often accuse churches of lacking a permit in order to close them down.

- Thank the Lord for keeping Pastor Muliku and his congregation safe during the attack.
- Pray the pastor and congregation will not be fearful or give up meeting together, for they have not been given a spirit of fear but of power and of love (2 Timothy 1:7).
- Pray for all Muslim youth in the area; ask for God’s special blessing to be upon them, so that they too may come to know Jesus for themselves and have transformed lives.
