Evangelism Team Opposed, Threatened with Violence

[144] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Evangelism team.

An evangelism team based in Peshawar, Pakistan, conducted outreach into many cities in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region in the summer of 2022. Some of the materials distributed during the outreach efforts were discovered by Islamic religious leaders, and an ulama, a meeting of Islamic religious legal scholars, convened to organize against the evangelism. Since the outreach efforts, the members of the evangelism team have all received threatening calls. They were then dispersed to other areas for their safety after hearing that the police were searching for them. This team asks for prayers that the evil plans against God’s people would be changed, and that those who received the evangelism materials — even the Islamic scholars who reviewed it — would trust in Christ in the process.

  • Lord, I pray for those "reproached for the name of Christ" by Muslim
    threats and by police:
    In their baptism of sufferings, they partake in the sufferings of Christ.
    May they know the True Comfort of Christ Himself (2 Cor. 4:10).
    May God's Glory in their witness of Christ during suffering (1 Pet 4:14) soften the hearts of many Muslims...
