A church in Surrey, England, has been targeted in a suspected arson attack that has left the building badly damaged.
- Pray for Southlands Church in Surrey, England, following the suspected arson attack on their building. Pray that they will get back to normal soon and that God will use this difficult period for His good purposes.
- As the all-parliamentary group implements its inquiry into the freedom of Christians in the UK, pray that there will be a greater awareness of the marginalisation of Christianity and renewed impetus to protect religious freedom.
- Pray that political and church leaders will support the freedom of Christians in the United States and back calls to recognise and preserve America’s Christian identity.
