Officially, Azerbaijan is a secular country with religious freedom. Christians, however, are often under surveillance and don’t know who to trust. The law is used to justify fines, police raids, detentions and imprisonments. Spies are also sent to church gatherings. Compulsory re-registration laws have led to the de-registration of many churches, making them targets for the authorities.
Pray: For Christians in the workforce who are disadvantaged and often overlooked because of their faith.
