Pray for the church in Azerbaijan as the government has been implementing various practices to restrict the religious freedom of its tiny Christian community. All worship gatherings need to be reported to the government. Churches must be registered in order to run; this registration process is often long and difficult as many churches are denied. Also, house churches are illegal and are often raided by police. Azerbaijan’s censorship system has made it extremely difficult for Bibles or other Christian literature from entering the country.
