RUSSIAN CHURCHES SET DAY TO FAST, PRAY FOR PERSECUTED BELIEVERS

Evangelical churches across Russia are calling believers everywhere to set aside 24 hours of prayer and fasting for persecuted believers starting at 10 a.m. (EST) Saturday, Nov. 6.
“Pray for God’s protection from persecution by evil individuals against the saints of God,” states a press release.
“Throughout all of Russia (Moscow, Kursk, Lipetsk, Novgorod, Sosnogorsk, Surgut, Volgograd, Siktivkar and other regions) attacks and beatings of believers and ministers take place as well as vandalism and burnings of Christian churches.
Leaflets with a call to violence against Protestants are being distributed, and the mass media is spreading slander, igniting hostility among [churches].”
The press release added that local authorities have been “blind to these outrageous and scandalous incidents.” Four churches in Moscow initiated the prayer event with the backing of the Evangelical Christians and Baptists (ECB) of Russia and the Moscow Union of ECB Churches.
