Christians under attack in Sudan

( - Followers of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir have intensified attacks on Christians and others they believe support the International Criminal Court's recent decision to prosecute the president for atrocities in the Darfur region.

According to an April 8 report from Compass Direct, Aburahaman Tai, a leader of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in the Nuba Mountains village of Chat, central Sudan, was beaten and injured by a suspected government militia in early March. On March 27, the building used by Tai's congregation and the Sudanese Church of Christ was set on fire by the same group, which reportedly supports an Islamist agenda. Church members fled the scene in fear for their lives. Tai's congregation has since been meeting for worship outdoors.

In Dungala, the capital of Northern state, a church building was recently turned into a mosque and some believers were forcibly converted to Islam.

Pray that Christians in Sudan will remain steadfast in their faith at all cost. Ask God to grant boldness and wisdom to the Christian leaders in this war-torn country.
