The Last Dictatorship of Europe

Belarus is sometimes described as “the last dictatorship of Europe”. Presidential elections are due to be held tomorrow, but it is a foregone conclusion that Alexander Lukashenko will be re-elected. Despite a constitution that protects freedom of religion, the sate strictly monitors religious activity and many Christian groups face considerable repression. Pray for President Lukashenko, that he will realise he only holds his position of power because God allows it, and that his heart will be moved to uphold full religious liberty. Pray in particular that all Belarussians will be allowed to worship freely in whatever building they choose.
