India is under attack from divisive forces both within and outside the country. These forces are attacking the very concept of India. Jesus Christ said, “Every country divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls.”

India needs peace both within and at its borders. India needs its citizens to JOIN TOGETHER TO PRAY AND WORK FOR A RECONCILED INDIA.

  • Mumbai 26/11: Terrorist attacks injured and killed hundreds, but united a billion citizens against terror.
  • Kandhamal 23/09 till date: Killing of the Swami Laxmananda Saraswati by Maoists and the subsequent killing of over 58 Christians and displacement of over 50,000 Christians in Orissa, should unite citizens for peace.
