Imagine going to work and being told you must take part in the pooja (worship) of an idol. Or imagine being told you must give to the community pooja in your neighborhood. Believers in Gujarat may face situations like this on any day. Please remember in prayer your brothers and sisters in Christ who daily face criticism, ostracism, persecution and even poverty, all because of their choice to follow Christ. Pray that they will stand firm in their faith, with their eyes fixed on the glories to come, even when the events of this day feel crushing.
Galations 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
