Daily Prayer Shield

Prayer Shield

25 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

In Bakamuna, central Sri Lanka, Buddhist monks filed a complaint against a Christian who held prayer meetings in her home. Police told her she must stop her meetings. Pray Bakamuna Christians can continue to meet.

Prayer Shield

24 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

Pray that it will be possible to hold more Shalom camps in Sri Lanka, funded by Release, where Christians can come together for spiritual refreshment and mutual encouragement.

Prayer Shield

23 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

Pray that the state in Sri Lanka would treat all citizens equally. Buddhists in rural areas have ready access to financial support to help with funeral costs when a relative dies: Christians receive no such support.

Prayer Shield

22 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

Pray for an end to discriminatory practices against Christians in Sri Lanka. Believers are routinely refused access to family burial plots in Buddhist cemeteries, denying them the ability to uphold cultural traditions of relatives being buried together.

Prayer Shield

21 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

Pray for relatives of the Easter Sunday suicide bombers in Sri Lanka, that they will come to experience the life-transforming love of Christ.

Prayer Shield

20 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

Pray for wisdom, stamina and grace for Release partners in Sri Lanka as they work to comfort families who have been bereaved and to provide medical assistance.

Prayer Shield

19 August 2019 – Sri Lanka

Pray that the authorities will do more to protect Christians in Sri Lanka. Senior church leaders criticised security arrangements for churches after the Easter bombings, amid revelations that officials had ignored warnings of attacks.

'Let us be on the side of those who sit in jails and are sentenced to death for their faith. Let us pray for them and help them'.
