Islamic Holidays Bring Extra Attention to New Christians

[235] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Gohar's Family.

A young Pakistani man who came to Christ was murdered shortly after an Islamic holiday. Gohar gave his life to Jesus after listening to a Christian radio broadcast and his whole life changed. “Thank God I left Islam. I want to bring more people to Christ,” Gohar told a member of the radio program’s follow-up team. Before he died, Gohar said he felt his life might be in danger. When the radio team member didn’t hear from Gohar for several days, he called him. Gohar’s brother answered the phone and said his brother had been killed a few days earlier. “He had changed a lot lately. He had become a happy man,” his brother said. Many believers are exposed during Islamic holidays because they stop celebrating them. If their actions are noticed, they become targets for Muslims extremists. Pray for new believers in Pakistan, that God would use them to spread the truth across the nation.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for preparing that place much greater in every way beyond this evil age. Please comfort Gohar's family and bring many to Jesus so his death is not in vain.
