Change in India?

June 5, 2013 by Open Doors in Stories of Persecution

There was an interesting article by CNN today about changes in India. Anna Hazare has lead anti-corruption activists in a hunger strike to promote changes in India. Some experts believe that this will lead to India’s version of the Arab Spring.

As this is good news for many Indians, I wonder if this will be advantageous for the Christian minority of India. Many Christians have been the victims of corruption; victims of the Orissa violence a few years ago have never found justice. The state government has done little to bring the attackers to justice and has done little to prevent future violence against the Christian minority.

So will Christians be forgotten about in this potential revolution? It’s hard to know. However, I do know that prayer can have a very impactful affect on the course of history. In 1982, Open Doors started a seven year prayer campaign for the people of Eastern Europe. Exactly seven years later, the wall came down! The power of prayer is simply amazing.

Will you join me in praying for the Christian minority of India? Please pray that the Lord would allow them to find justice and that they would no longer be the victims of corruption. Pray that this minority would not be forgotten about if changes in anti-corruption do happen in India.
