Urgent Prayer Request:
10-year-old boy in Danger
February 13, 2018
This week, MORE International is facing one of our toughest challenges yet. A Pakistani brother that was connected to us by a partner organization left his country less than two weeks ago and has been staying at our Brazil base. The same group that has been relentlessly persecuting him has kidnapped his 10-year old son this past Sunday. Now our brother is on his way back to Pakistan, as the group demanded that he will give his life in exchange for the child.
Here is the prayer note from our partner organization:
Urgent prayers are needed for a Christian family in Pakistan, as extremists have kidnapped their 10-year old son. The gentleman is currently overseas and the extremists are demanding to speak to him for his son’s safe return. His wife, who is a former Muslim who now follows Christ, went into a coma due to the grief of her son’s kidnapping and has been rushed to the hospital.
Due to an honour/shame culture in Pakistan, extremists can potentially harm this believing family. Please pray for the following;
1) God will protect their son and help him come home unharmed.
2) God will recover the wife and give her health.
3) God will protect the whole family and help them move to a safe place ASAP.
Join us in prayer for this situation. Their suffering is a direct result of their faithfulness to Christ. They need the Body of Christ at this time.
