Dear ,

We urgently need your prayers once again for the Indian state of Assam.

Assam's longtime ethnic feud between the Bodo tribe and Muslim immigrants from Bangladesh erupted into violence July 6 when a local Muslim man was shot and killed. Nearly a month later, the situation continues to worsen.

In the ensuing riots, a leader from each group was shot, four Bodo people were found hacked to death and 500 villages were burned.

This decades-old fight has become a major national crisis.

So far, 235 relief camps have been established for nearly 400,000 displaced people, and 57 people have lost their lives.

We need desperate prayer for God to intervene as lives are lost and suffering becomes acute. In the Bodo region, our missionaries are still helping many recover from the devastation of recent flooding.

Please pray for God to bring peace to this situation.
