Christian worshippers brutally beaten by police in Vietnam

Sixteen Christians were recently attacked
and seriously injured in Vietnam. 
A violent attack against minority Degar Montagnard Christians in the central highlands of Vietnam took place in July, leaving 16 Christians severely injured, reports International Christian Concern. One Christian man remains under arrest, his condition unknown.

On July 7, at approximately 8 p.m., Vietnamese security forces and police descended upon a worship service in the village of Buon Kret Krot, Gai Lai Province, and began kicking and beating the attendees. Security forces threatened the villagers, stating: "If anyone worships like this way, we will return to arrest you all and put you in prison for five years." Of the Christians attacked, 10 men and two women were beaten to the point of unconsciousness.

You can help by praying!
  • Pray the Lord will bring swift and complete healing to those who were injured. 
  • Pray for the release of the believer who was arrested. 
  • Ask the Lord to strengthen the faith of these believers. 
  • Pray Christians in Vietnam will continue to meet together in spite of the opposition. 
  • Pray for the perpetrators of this attack.

  1. Lord Jesus, Pray that your Holy Spirit will comfort these brothers and sisters and that you will soften the hearts of their perpetrators like you did with Saul and use all of this for your glory and advancement of your kingdom come! Provide for your children in Vietnam their reward is great in Heaven and give them forebearance and courage to always be faithful to you no matter what. IN Jesus name, amen.
