( - At approximately 6:30 p.m. on March 24, the Jesus Prayer House church building in the village of Kuruvakalva, Andhra Pradesh was burned by Hindu militants. Bibles, hymnals and furniture as well as the roof the church were destroyed.

On April 5, Pastor Yadal was attacked in the village of Vadarpalaya, Karnataka. Police officers stopped Pastor Yadal while he was on his way to preach at the House of Salvation church. An officer beat the pastor and accused him of forcibly converting Hindus. Hindu militants then called two local pastors to the scene and warned them to stop holding church services. The militants also went to two other churches in the same village and warned them against gathering for worship.

Pray for strength and wisdom for the victims of these attacks. Ask the Lord to embolden Indian Christians to continue serving Him and worshipping together despite pressure (1 Peter 5:10).
