Prayer and text from India Widows Attacked for Refusing to Deny Christ, by Release International, visit to for more information.
Extremists in India have brutally beaten two Christian widows for refusing to reconvert to Hinduism.
In one attack, Laxmi Sovi was attacked by three men who forced their way into her home in Kakadi Beda village in Chhattisgarh state, demanding she and her children return to Hinduism. Laxmi fled into the jungle with her family and took refuge there overnight. When she returned home next morning, she found her house had been demolished.
In an earlier attack, also last month, extremists in Chickmagalur, Karnataka state, dragged a widow named Doddamma and her daughter to a Hindu temple and beat Doddamma unconscious when she refused to reconvert to Hinduism. Their home was burgled and vandalised. All three women required hospital treatment.
We give you great thanks for all of our blessings, for we know they come directly from you. We pray that these women will know that GOD is their refuge and strength. We pray that local Christians will care for and protect them. We pray that local officials will come to know Your Word, and that you take a tough stance against such attacks. We pray that the government of India will rise to protect the rights of Christians and to do everything in its power to prevent such violence against helpless women. Please lift the hearts of these precious victims. May Your will be done. In the name of Your Son, Jesus, we pray.
'Cursed is he who distorts the justice due an alien, orphan, and widow.' And all the people shall say, 'Amen.'
