A S. Asian widow watched The Case For Christ movie with several Christians. She seemed deeply touched, very glad to be invited, and remarked afterwards, “That was really such a good movie.” Pray that she will come to faith in Christ.
A S. Asian woman held hands with two others as her Christian friend prayed that God would lift the veil that lies over her heart and that of her family members so they can see His light. Pray that God will answer that prayer and this Muslim family will see the light of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
Please pray for more laborers to work with South Asians. There are whole communities of South Asian families who have no Christian friends and never hear the gospel from birth to death. Please pray for God to send western workers who would live in their neighborhoods and share Christ with them. Pray also for African believers from other tribes who have grown up in churches and have had the gospel for generations to have the courage and concern to cross cultures and reach out to this unreached people group.
A missionary has returned to her place of service, and is seeking the Lord’s direction and open doors for renewing ministry to her South Asian friends. Pray that she will be guided to those who need her–and the Savior–most.
Please pray for a young S. Asian woman who is watching Youtube videos that encourage her to stay strong in Islam. She continues to cling to her religion although she has often heard the gospel, as do her parents. Perhaps she clings to Islam because she is hearing the soft invitation of Jesus Christ in her heart. Pray that she and her whole family will become disillusioned with their religion and will see Jesus in all His glory and give their allegiance and hearts to Him.
Pray for a S. Asian widow who will meet soon with a missionary. May God give her burning questions about spiritual matters and eagerness to ask her friend about those topics. May the Holy Spirit open her understanding to receive spiritual truth. May she put her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Please continue to pray that during Ramadan the Spirit of God will be at work in the hearts of South Asian Muslim friends, reminding them of things that they have heard and learned about from their Christian friends. May He make them dissatisfied with their own efforts and religion, and give them a yearning to enter into a relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ.
Praise God for the missionary zeal He has given to a young S. Asian university student. Wherever she goes, she shares the gospel with people who need Christ. Pray for her this summer as she spends time with her family in Kenya, that their fellowship will be sweet and that together they will have opportunities to share Christ with their Hindu friends and relatives.
Please pray for the Lord to bring S. Asian families to faith in Christ as He brought Lydia and her household to Christ, as He brought the Philippian jailer and his household to Christ. Pray that they will be released from their bondage to other religions and find strength in following Christ together.
Two S. Asian high school girls asked their Christian neighbour to answer questions about Christianity so they can pass their religion exam. When they brought the questions, however, they were mostly about peripheral practices rather than the gospel and doctrine. Please pray for more questions to come up and that they will come to faith in Christ.
