Pray for a Kidnapped Nursing Home Worker and Vulnerable Residents

[305] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Kidnapped Worker.

Tom Uzhunnalil, a Christian worker from India, was kidnapped during a violent attack on a Christian nursing home in Aden, Yemen. Gunmen burst into the residential facility and went room to room, handcuffing full-time and volunteer staff members before executing 16 of them. Workers from India, Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Yemen were killed. The facility cares for 80 poor, elderly and disabled Yemeni citizens, none of whom were harmed. On Christmas Day, militants released a video of Tom pleading for help and stating that he was kidnapped because he was working for “the Christian religion and the church.” Please pray for Tom and for everyone mourning the loss of those killed in the attack. Also pray that the facility can continue caring for some of the most vulnerable in Yemen.

  • Father, it would seem at times that darkness is winning this battle for the hearts and minds of the lost in Yemen but we know that the gates of hell will not prevail against Your kingdom anywhere in this world. We ask for physical deliverance for Tom Uzhunnalil, just as You delivered Peter and Paul from their Jailers; do so for Tom in Jesus' name!
