Pray for Our World: Sri Lanka

The Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka is a large island 80 km southwest of India. They gained their independence from Britain in 1948, and were engaged in civil war up until 2009. Buddhism is the national religion, and is protected and promoted. Christianity is perceived as foreign, and evangelism as an unethical way of conversion. Missionaries have all but ended due to restriction of visas. Christian literature is in great demand. Literacy is high but affordable quality literature that is culturally relevant is lacking. Christian radio and the Jesus film are available. Pray that the people will receive the literature and resources they need to learn about Jesus Christ for themselves.
