Pray for the Persecuted Church: Brunei
13% of their population (an abnormally high percentage) is Christian in this nation which is less than half the size of Columbus. Their society is impacted by the enforced Sharia laws and policies favoring Muslims. Pray for Muslims who turn to Christ and now face strict punishment under Sharia law. Pray that the government of Brunei would lift the decree that bans the importation of Bibles and the public celebration of Christmas. Pray for underground believers who feel persecution strongly because the country is so small and there is nowhere to run if their faith in Christ is exposed and that they would have wisdom and courage to be lights for Christ. Pray for the health of the church as they are affected by the scarcity of young people since many leave for better futures outside of their nation.
