Hi all,
Please pray for India, for its people and the government. Especially pray for the believers and the church, that the church may move in zeal towards its mission under any circumstance. As we see in the Old Testament , when people were under the king instituted for Israel and of Israel e.g. King David ,and also not of Israel as the election of King Nebuchadnezzar to rule Jerusalem, the real unfolding of the plans of God came later as revealed in the book of Daniel.

Please pray that the believers may gather and pray for boldness in the Gospel, as was prayed by the church in the New Testament and may boldly proclaim the gospel (Acts 4:23-31) .That more and more people come to the Lord, be filled by the Holy spirit and find salvation. That the believers may be in fire to spread the gospel, and work towards the expansion in the Kingdom of God. That God may bring many out of poverty and distress and give them his peace by his Holy spirit. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. (Matt 9:38).

That new churches may be established and as God used the Governments in the Scriptures for his plans, he may also use the government and the circumstances for his plans and purposes. Pray for eyes of the people of India may be opened to the Gospel. Also pray that the affairs of our country are governed by God's mercy and justice, not by man's will including our institutions, judiciary and the constitution.
Please keep in remembrance few facts from the book of Exodus when Israelites were in Egypt, in bondage, while praying for the church and also for the unsaved.
- God heard the cry of the Israelites when they were in bondage. Exo 3:9-10
- God judged Pharaoh the ruler and also Egypt for his hardness. Exo 7:3-5
- God judged the God's of Egypt. Exo 12:12
- God brought the Israelites to the promised land. Exo 13:5
- God also promised to increase the Israelites over the Hivites, Canaanites and the Hittites with conditions. Exo 23:23-33
Amen
