Pray for BIHAR!
Situated in North India, Bihar is the second largest state in India.

Biharis are in great need in so many areas. More than half of the population live below the poverty line and Muslims are among the poorest due to their status in society. Poverty is a constant reality in Bihar, found in the shame of a father who cannot provide for his family; the suffering of a woman falling sick; the constant hunger of a malnourished child, all this fuels the lifelong struggle for survival.

Few Christian workers want to go here, as it is considered by many as the “most backward state of India” with a high rate of illiteracy and underdevelopment. Schools and health clinics are scarce, roads are bad, and crime and corruption flourishes. The Indian Church is culturally very distant from the Muslim communities.

Continue to pray for those affected by Ebola. In the impoverished West African country of Sierra Leone, where life expectancy is only 47 years, the rapid spread of the Ebola virus has stretched ministry workers striving to support grieving and suffering families. There are hundreds of families around us that have lost loved ones,” said the director of a ministry assisted by Christian Aid Mission. “Besides the loss of loved ones – some families lose more than one member of their family to Ebola – they are immediately subjected to isolation from the rest of the community for a period of 21 days.” Neighbouring houses are also quarantined, so hundreds of people are affected. Jobs and food supplies have been crippled, so food often has to be imported, costing double the price. Many are laid off from employment and cannot afford it. Some ministries have begun feeding programmes, and supply food as well as medicines. Continue to pray for those affected by Ebola.

Give thanks to God for the new religious freedom in Indonesia. Indonesia’s new government plans to restore religious freedom to all minorities, as per the country’s 1945 Constitution. With less than a month in their posts, the President, along with the Ministers for Religious and Home Affairs, are taking steps to ensure freedom of worship for all, bringing hope to the country after years of religious persecution. This Sunni-majority country has the largest Muslim population in the world. However, Religious Affairs Minister Lukman Hakim has announced that a new law is to be introduced within six months to protect minorities from attack and to ensure that all citizens have the same rights. He also promises that local leaders will be held accountable. Christians have welcomed the election of new president, Joko Widodo. Give thanks to God for the new religious freedom in Indonesia.

Pray for the Dalits in India. In October, India's minister for social justice said his new government will not grant Dalit Christians and Muslims the same rights afforded to Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs. According to Barnabas Aid, Hindu nationalist organisations have complained that giving Christian Dalits equal rights would encourage Hindu Dalits to leave their religion. Dalits –formerly known as "untouchables" because higher castes believed they would defile themselves through any physical contact—continue to live in poverty due to discrimination in both education and employment. Although the Indian government classifies some Dalits as "Scheduled Caste"—making them eligible to receive certain benefits in education and employment—followers of religions that originated outside of India are deemed ineligible for this classification. Scheduled Caste Dalits lose their benefits if they convert to Christianity or Islam. Pray for the Dalits in India.

God, break our hearts with what breaks your heart. Show us your heart daily that we see what you see, feel what you feel, know what you know and be your hands and feet to the poor and needy, wherever you have placed us. May we know You more through our giving. Let us be lovers of God and not lovers of money and be generous in our giving. May business people rise up to help the poor and needy, to come out of poverty. May companies rise above making profits and begin to reach out to the poor and needy. Move the hearts of wealthy men and women, so that they do not spend all their money on branded clothes and expensive cars, luxurious watches and diamonds, constant holidays and spas but begin to know you God, know your heart and live a life of giving and generosity. Touch the lives of the rich, God we pray and draw them to You. May revival take place among the influential and the wealthy people. Use the rich people for Your Glory God, in this hour and for such a time as this. God, break our hearts with what breaks your heart.
