Ramadan Day 16

Chechnya(from Open Doors)

Leader: President Ramzan Kadyrov 
Population: 1 million (few Christians) 
Main Religion: Islam 
Government: Republic (Russian Federation) 
World Watch Rank: 20
The church is very young, vulnerable and isolated. Fellowship with other believers is almost impossible. An Islamic revival is taking place in Chechnya; the largest mosque in the Caucasus has been built in Grozny. Christianity is associated with Russia and Chechen believers whose faith becomes public are seen as traitors to Islam and society. Local authorities and relatives monitor the activities of Christians and put great pressure on them to return to Islam.

Please Pray:

  • That the few Christians would persevere in faith. Several have turned away from their faith as the pressure became too great
  • That Christians may know how to live and witness in their situations
  • For the many orphans whose parents were killed during the wars. Pray that God's love and compassion will reach their hearts and transform their lives.
