Pray for Sri Lanka!

The Sri Lanka Parliament may try and pass an anti-conversion law in the near future.

A standing committee assigned to consider a draft “Bill for the Prohibition of
Forcible Conversions” presented its report to Parliament on Jan. 6, suggesting
minor amendments that clear the way for a final vote in February. The provisions
of the bill criminalize any act to convert or attempt to convert a person from
one religion to another religion by the use of force, fraud or allurement. Those
found guilty of breaking the law could be imprisoned for up to seven years
and/or fined up to 500,000 rupees (US$4,425).

Please pray that the Lord would stop this bill from passing. Also pray for those who are pushing hard to have this bill passed. Pray that they would be convicted and turn in repentance to Jesus.
