Thousands of Christians in Garo Hills in India participated in a day of prayer and protest against rising religious intolerance in India. The event took place on January 7 and was led by the area's Catholic leadership. Attacks on Christians and their places of worship have continued to escalate as Hindu radical groups enjoy near complete impunity. Over the Christmas holiday, ICC documented at least 23 separate attacks on Christians celebrating the Christmas season, making it one of the worst Christmas holidays in recent history.
- Pray for the government to recognize the community’s peaceful calls for protection.
- Pray for India’s Christian community to support and encourage one another through these attacks.
- Pray for the Gospel to spread throughout India.
