Editor’s Note: Dedication of a Temple


Did you catch the live stream of the big temple dedication? It was celebrated globally. More than a billion people around the world watched and 8,000 were present.

No, it wasn’t the temple in Israel. It was India’s new temple of Ram, built on the site of a former mosque and dedicated last Monday in what some see as a symbol of the nation’s turn away from the secular, multicultural vision of its founders.

As you take it in, ask the Lord to guide you in praying for India and the watching world.

You might also be interested in news about a mosque destroyed last month in Gaza. Previously, it was the site of the Dagon temple we read about Samson destroying in Judges 16:25-30 (perhaps the sort of thing described in Isaiah 42:8) and after that a Byzantine church and a Catholic cathedral (Religion News).

Thanks for praying,

Pat Noble
