Pray for Zhafar Bhatti, Imprisoned Since 2012

[303] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Zhafar.

Zhafar Bhatti, who was arrested and charged with blasphemy in July 2012, remains in prison, where he has been beaten several times. Zhafar, a traveling salesman for various medications, often used his door-to-door presentations to also share the gospel. He established a small NGO called “Jesus World Mission” with the purpose of helping the poor. On July 11, 2012, he was accused by a fellow NGO worker of sending blasphemous text messages from a mobile phone that she had given him. Zhafar and his wife left their village to avoid a riot, and police arrested him on July 26, charging him under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. Other prisoners have beaten Zhafar several times and tried to poison his food, and Muslim prisoners continually pressure him to embrace Islam. Pray that Zhafar will remain strong in his faith, and pray that he will be released and reunited with his family soon.

    I am so sorry you are suffering so, but take heart. The Apostle Paul spent a good deal of time in prison and was able to keep the faith not in his own strength, but in the might of Christ. God is your strength and resistance and you will stand strong in Him.

    I’m Jesus Name,
