Joy in His Presence

Pray for unsaved women who came to a lunch and heard a short devotional on finding joy in God’s presence, to now begin to come to read the Scriptures together and learn to know Him through Jesus Christ.

Thursday Ladies’ Lunch

Please pray for a lunch on Thursday to which I’ve invited a number of S. Asian women. ┬áPray that those with spiritual hunger will come. Pray that the Spirit will fill the time and my home with warmth and love. Please pray that the Lord will open a conversation that allows me to offer a Bible study to any who would like it. Pray that some brave ones would respond publicly and say they would like to participate. Pray for others to be influenced by their example. Pray for the Lord to use this event to move each unsaved woman closer to faith in Christ.

Chatting on WhatsApp

There are a number of young South Asian women I met at a wedding a few months ago who like to chat with me by WhatsApp. Would you pray that the Lord will have them initiate conversations about spiritual things that open doors for the gospel? One of the young women would like to meet for coffee on Wednesday.

Needing Rescue

Pray for a young woman whose mom and dad are currently working on an arranged marriage for her, and the wedding could be very soon. This devout Muslim man would not only take her far away to live, but is also insisting that she take Islamic classes to become a better Muslim. A Christian friend has spent countless hours talking with her about the relational God of the Bible, but she has not yet put her faith in Christ. This change of life could be how God saves her, but we are praying that if this would pull her further away from Jesus, that He would spare and rescue her from this marriage. The young woman and her Christian friend will meet again next weekend. Pray for wisdom about what to say. Pray for her salvation, and that of her parents and whole family.

A New Bride

A Muslim S. Asian woman became a bride. She has been taken into her husband’s household to live, and can no longer hear the Bible stories her Christian friend shared with her back home. Please pray that she and her new husband will meet other Christians in their town and come to faith in Jesus Christ together.

Young Wife

A young Muslim wife will soon have her second child. She recently heard the gospel presented twice in the same day. Please pray that the word that fell on her ears will enter her heart and produce faith in Christ.

Broken People

A Muslim S. Asian family is broken and unhappy, living lives of discouraged trouble. Recently the mother received a Gospel of John and some reading glasses. Please pray that as she reads the gospel, she will find the Lord Jesus inviting her to come to Him in faith, and that the whole family will feast on the bread of life.

Receive Guidance

A S.Asian woman was deeply impressed by a Christian movie she saw, although she argued against the gospel when her friends shared it with her. Pray that during Ramadan she will receive the guidance that she boasts she asks for every time she prays to Allah…and that the guidance will lead her to faith in Jesus the Son of God.

Hungry for Forgiveness

A S. Asian Hindu man seemed hungry for forgiveness of sins. He was told, “There is a Savior, who loves you very much. Seek Him! His name is Jesus.” Please pray that he will seek the Savior and come to faith in Him.

The Gospel at a Wedding

A young South Asian woman heard the gospel from two Christian women at a Muslim wedding brunch. Please pray for the Lord to put her in contact with other Christians who can keep sharing the Word of Life, and that she will put her faith in Christ.
