  1. Right now I don’t have it all together at all. I am very distraught and could use your prayers. The director of the school I work with in Pakistan, and who is like a son to me, is fearing for his life. They are rounding up Christians, beating and torturing them, sentencing them to long prison terms or worse. Please pray that God would put a hedge of safety around him and that I would be able to help in the best way(s) I can. Right now I am just so torn up over this. Thank you in advance for your prayers…

    • Supernatural protection around him and all the believers there. That God will change hearts and minds of the extremists. Praying this.

    • i see them in God’s hands they are comforted and peaceful. i also see you there with him and pray that God gives you the peace that you need.

    • Praying God’s protection over him and others persecuted for their love of Christ. Dear Lord, stay the hand of evil against your beloveds.

    • Prayers for everyone involved! May God intercede and help those in harm. May God deliver comfort and peace to your heart. Prayers for the young children living in this dangerous area!

  2. I pray that more people will see this and begin to pull away and begin to intercede. May Psalm 91 be made manifest in the lives of our brethren. Thank you for sharing this information.

  3. Happy Palm Sunday everyone!

    No one has it all together in this crazy mixed up world! Everyone needs someone to encourage them and lift them up in prayer. We are all called to bear one another’s burdens! People are always going through something at one point in their lives! We need to be uplifting and encouraging each other showing them God’s love!
    Blessings 🙂

  4. Thank you all for your kind and heartfelt prayers…I can’t tell you how much it means to me! If you would continue to keep this young man in your prayers as well as the children I would be ever so grateful! I know that God hears your prayers…
    With blessings and thanks,

    • Bev, thank you for sharing this. We’re lifting up our brothers and sisters in prayer with you.

      Father, you are LORD over all. You see all. You know all. And You hear the cries of your servants. We pray for Your protection. Surround our brothers and sisters with the Peace that only comes from You. Envelope our brothers and sisters with Your steadfast love. Pour out Your Mercy we pray. We thank You — for we know that You are always with us. We place the fullness of our trust wholly in Your hands. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
