Today's Prayer

Tajiks of Afghanistan

February 10, 2016
Tajiks of Afghanistan He is a young father in his early thirties and has three children under the age of 5. Thankfully, he has a good job and is able to provide for his family, but he is heartbroken for them. He has found something that has changed his life; he has found a Rescuer, a Savior. He has found hope for this world, but his family does not share his beliefs. In fact, just a few weeks ago, he got the courage to share with his wife that he is a follower of Jesus. He told her and began to show her the film called "God Is Love," which was produced by Iranian believers. He said that is how he began to understand God's heart for mankind and he wanted his wife to understand, too. Please pray for this family, asking that God will use this husband and father to show the love of Jesus and speak the words of truth to them. Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the heart of his wife so that she may also embrace this great forgiveness and steadfast love of God. Pray for other Tajik men in Afghanistan who have become followers of Jesus, asking that they will become heartbroken over the need of salvation for their families and be bold in proclaiming the Good News.
