The family of a Christian man who was fatally stabbed in Bangladesh requests prayer for their comfort and for those who killed him. Three men attacked 68-year-old Hossain Ali on March 22 while he was on his morning walk. According to local police, the attackers fled the scene after stabbing him to death, setting off crude bombs to create panic and confusion. Islamic extremists later claimed responsibility for the murder, calling it “a lesson to others.” Hossain Ali converted to Christianity from Islam in 1999. After an attack many years ago, he requested prayer for those who had beaten him. Please pray for his family and other loved ones, and remember to pray for those who killed him.
