UK: Police visit Christian cafe owner who displayed Bible verses

Australia: School bans Lord’s Prayer after parents’ complaints
A government school in Western Australia (WA) has banned students from reciting the Lord's Prayer before assembly in response to complaints from parents.
- Pray that the Christian cafe owner who was visited by the police for displaying Bible verses on a screen will continue to have the freedom to display Scripture without further difficulties.
- Pray that the banning of the Lord’s Prayer in one Western Australian school will not lead to the further marginalising of Christianity in the country’s schools.
- Pray that the BBC will reconsider its advice to staff regarding alternatives to BC and AD. Pray that the BBC’s example will not undermine Christianity and promote aggressive secularism.
