Prayer for believers in Bangladesh

Lord, today our thoughts and prayers turn toward the nation of Bangladesh. Lord, we are thankful that this majority-Muslim nation allows freedom of religion, but we are concerned about the rapid increase in terrorist attacks on Christians. We are sad to hear of people being killed and living in fear, and of churches being forced to close. But we are thankful that you are never terrorized nor are you bound. We know that, despite persecution (and often as a result of it), your Church continues to grow. We pray for more Muslims to turn to Jesus every day in Bangladesh. We pray for protection for Christians, so they may continue to serve you and be lights for you. We also pray for the equipping of Christians in Bangladesh. We know that brand-new Christians often face the greatest persecution in Bangladesh. Stand by and sustain these new believers, and send brothers and sisters in Christ to encourage and equip them. In Jesus' powerful name we pray, amen.
