Pray for Nou, Whose Family Tried to Kill Him

[290] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Nou.

In February a Hmong Christian, Brother “Nou,” was confronted at his house by a relative with a gun, a knife and the intent to kill him. Brother Nou has been persecuted by family members repeatedly since coming to faith in Jesus Christ two years ago. After their attempts at persuading him to deny Christ failed, they turned to anger and threats. When the relative showed up at his house last month, a neighbor prevented the relative from shooting Brother Nou, but the relative was still able to pull a knife out of his bag and injure Brother Nou. He was taken to the hospital for treatment, and local police arrested the relative for the assault. Praise God for this brother’s faithfulness to Jesus. Pray for healing of his wrist, which sustained a deep knife wound, and for his continued ministry. Pray, too, for his relative’s salvation.
