Former Teacher Faces Seven Years in Prison

[238] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Alisher.

About two years ago, a school teacher named Alisher placed his faith in Christ and began actively sharing the gospel. As a result, he was fired from his job as a teacher. Then, the secret police forced former students to denounce Alisher in writing. The local prosecutor has since filed charges against him, and he faces the possibility of up to seven years in prison. Pray for Alisher’s encouragement and for a quick and positive resolution to his case.

  • Help us who do not have loved ones killed for their faith, to somehow try to understand what it takes to follow you under such circumstances. Grant those who suffer more of your grace, which is sufficient in all things. Bring peace to their souls; and, lead millions to faith in Jesus through them.

  • Father, Strengthen and mature this believer. Remove any fear. Keep him from prison but if it is your will, let him literally turn every prisoner he comes in contact with to you so Satan's plan is destroyed. Let every one of his students come to Jesus due to his witness. This man lost his job because of you. Please always provide for his physical needs

  • I pray that every plan of the enemy to jail Alister shall come to nothing. Every weapon formed against him & his family shall not prosper. According to Lamentation 3 vs 36-37; to subvert a man in his cause the Lord approveth not; who is he that saith & it cometh to pass when the Lord commanded it not. It shall be unto Alister according to this words.
