The pleas of the evangelical churches in Nicaragua for prayer support have been heard. The tragic loss of religious liberty has made it extremely difficult for many Nicaraguan churches to fulfill their ministries.

We are asked by Nicaraguan Christian brothers and sisters to join them in a worldwide campaign of prayer that will climax on October 12, 1987. They ask that we pray especially that freedom for all churches be restored, that radio stations with religious programming be permitted to reopen and that permission be granted for church publications, now forbidden, to be published and mailed.

Therefore, we call upon all Christians to join in prayer for the churches of Nicaragua and plan a Day of Prayer on October 12, 1987.
