Prayer and Fasting: Tatars of Central Asia

In the 10th century, Tatars converted to Islam. Six centuries later, the Muslim Tatar people suffered atrocities “in the name of Jesus” at the hands of Ivan the Terrible. That dark period of Tatar history continues to be an obstacle to the gospel after more than 500 years. Join in prayer and fasting on April 26.

Today's Prayer

Highland Singers of Central Asia

May 21, 2015
Highland Singers of Central Asia “While waiting for a flight, I met a woman named Amina*, who had worked for the government for years, heading up community projects for women. We really hit it off, as we were amused by the same things; it just was easy to talk with her. The flight was canceled, so we parted ways, and I didn’t see her again until last week. Amina is now the mayor of our town! She recognized me from years ago, and was delighted to be able to make plans for us to get to know one another better. I was, too, as I sensed God working in her heart. She told about a particularly hopeless day after the civil war, when, bereft of every material possession, she came upon a scrap of paper . . . yes, a page from a Bible. Much of the Scripture was obliterated, but what remained was enough to convince her that God loved her and that perhaps there was hope! When our friend Deborah* mentioned Jesus, and named Him as the Son of God, Amina agreed. I intend to pursue this friendship that’s been offered! Pray that our friendship not be hindered, and that I will be able to share Truth with her in a way that she will hear and believe--and share. Also, she asks for prayer for herself, that she will be able to do her new job well. She’s apprehensive, as she’s not used to working around men.” (*names changed)
