Pray for Esmail, Unemployed After an Attack by Colleagues

[261] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Esmail.

A Pakistani Christian man lost his taxi business recently after two Muslim colleagues destroyed his car. “Esmail” was never shy about sharing his Christian faith, and when he began driving a taxi several years ago he continued sharing it with other taxi drivers, even giving a Bible to one especially interested colleague. But two other drivers disapproved of Esmail’s boldness, accusing him of trying to persuade Muslims to give up their faith. A village leader warned Esmail to stop sharing his faith with Muslims, but the two angry drivers decided a more severe punishment was in order. They smashed into Esmail’s car with a truck, destroying his taxi and sole means of financial support. Esmail was badly injured in the incident and had to borrow money to pay for medical treatment. Pray for Esmail and his wife, who now have no way of supporting themselves. Pray for Esmail’s healing, and thank God for their strong faith.

  • O Lord, fight those who fight with me!
    Attack those who attack me! Assure me with these words: “I am your deliverer!”
    May those who seek my life be embarrassed and humiliated!
    May those who plan to harm me be turned back and ashamed! Then I will rejoice in the Lord
    and be happy because of his deliverance. (from Psalms 35)
