Pray for Czech Aid Worker and Three Others on Trial in Sudan

[1,013] prayers in [35] nations have been posted for Czech Aid Worker.

Petr Jasek, a former hospital administrator from Czech Republic, is currently being tried in Khartoum, Sudan, on charges of “crimes against national security.” If convicted of the charges, Mr. Jasek, along with two Sudanese pastors and another Sudanese man being tried on the same charges, could face the death penalty.

Mr. Jasek has a 20-year background in the medical field, including 10 years as a hospital administrator. This experience and training uniquely qualified him to serve suffering people in places like Sudan. Mr. Jasek has assisted VOM on different occasions to provide care to persecuted Christians in Sudan and Nigeria, including medical care for Christians attacked by Boko Haram.

Please pray for Mr. Jasek, along with Rev. Hassan Abduraheem, Rev. Kuwa Shamal and for the other Sudanese man, as their trial continues. Pray for favor with court officials, for justice in their trial and that all four men will be freed and allowed to return to their families. Pray that God will continue to protect and sustain these men who have been unjustly imprisoned for more than nine months.

Pray also for the wives and children of these men, who are naturally concerned for their loved ones. Pray that God’s peace will reign in their hearts during this difficult time.

(VOM will be sending some of the family members a link to this website so they can receive encouragement from your prayers.)

Lord, you know where they are and who they are: you created each in their mother's womb. You know prisoners who encountered Petr Jasek, Hassan Abduraheem, and Abdulmonem Abdumawla. And you can reverberate their faith in every cell.
