In 2015, Nepal changed its constitution to become a secular nation with the freedom of religion, but in October, Nepal’s president signed a Criminal Code Bill into law known as the anti-conversion law, making religious conversion illegal and punishable by five years in prison and a fine of about 50,000 rupees. Despite the law being in place, Nepal has one of the fastest growing churches in the world. In response, Christians in Nepal recently sent a petition to their government asking that the ban on religious conversions be repealed.
- Pray for the Church in Nepal to thrive despite government opposition.
- Pray for Nepal’s Christian leaders to serve with boldness and without fear.
- Pray for the repeal of Nepal’s anti-conversion law.
