International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted l Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

Join Kerusomen Gospel Ministries and Pray for India

November 3, 2019

Open Doors, an advocate for persecuted Christians around the world writes: 
"This International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is the time for Christians to pray with their brothers and sisters in India. India recently moved into the top 10 on the Open Doors World Watch List of the most dangerous countries in the world for Christians. Believers in India are often shunned, unjustly arrested, attacked—even killed—because they choose to follow Jesus and not Hinduism or the local religion. Our Indian family needs the prayers of the global church this IDOP to stand strong in the midst of persecution—and to remain a light for Christ in the world’s second-most populated country."
In the six states Kerusomen has churches, there has been a 77.5% increase in incidents of persecution reported... 

Fast Your Birthday and Change Lives

Imagine: Your Birthday a Blessing

Just by skipping your birthday...

That's what Maureen did this year. By giving up (fasting) her birthday to rescue widows in India, she raised a total of $315 dollars. (including personal checks sent directly to her). This was nearly enough to provide 2 widows food and medicine aid FOR A YEAR.

Pray for India / Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

Want to Change the World? Pray.

If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.  - John 14:14  

Billions of people are living in India today without having a saving relationship with Jesus. Billions. Unless something changes.
We call them the "unreached" or "unengaged".  We hear the statistics and wonder: "What can I do? "
When Jesus was confronted with our dilemma, He saw the "multitudes" and He called them "sheep without a shepherd" and felt "compassion" for them.  Then He told His disciples:  "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."   Matthew 9: 35-38
Four things jump out in these verses:  First, when Jesus saw the multitudes He called them "sheep without a shepherd".  He personalized them. These were real people with real faces who were really lost without Him. Second, He felt "compassion".  He really cared about them because He really understood them.  Third, He commanded us to pray in a certain way: "earnestly".  Synonyms for earnestly are strongly, deeply, intensely, seriously and industriously. Finally, Jesus focused first on the opportunity: "the harvest is plentiful".      
Putting Jesus words into practice when praying for our KGM family in India and their mission to reach the "unreached" means getting personal.  Really caring enough to generate true emotion, compassion and empathy as we cry out to God for them with persistence and passion. Knowing that only God can change their situation. 
Prayercast has a beautiful, moving prayer on video that can jumpstart us on our journey to adopt God's heart for His lost people in India. It combines music and stunning visuals of the Indian people and places. As we watch and pray along with an Indian pastor who knows the desperate needs of his country and its people, may our hearts be broken and stirred to a new passion and urgency.   
Prayer is the first and most critical step in reaching the people of India with the Gospel. We know this intellectually in our head - may God shift it to our heart.
