A young Pakistani man who came to Christ was murdered shortly after an Islamic holiday. Gohar gave his life to Jesus after listening to a Christian radio broadcast and his whole life changed. “Thank God I left Islam. I want to bring more people to Christ,” Gohar told a member of the radio program’s follow-up team.

Before he died, Gohar said he felt his life might be in danger. When the radio team member didn’t hear from Gohar for several days, he called him. Gohar’s brother answered the phone and said his brother had been killed a few days earlier. “He had changed a lot lately. He had become a happy man,” his brother said.

Many believers are exposed during Islamic holidays because they stop celebrating them. If their actions are noticed, they become targets for Muslims extremists.

  • Praise God that Gohar found Him. Pray that even now, Gohar’s testimony may be used by God for His glory and for the spiritual blessing of others.
  • Pray for new believers in Pakistan, that God would use them to spread the truth across the nation and that He will help them to be faithful when opposed. Ask God for His protection.
  • Pray for those grieving the loss of Gohar, may they turn to the Lord and be comforted.

Dear Lord, give courage and strength to these dear believers. May they experience your presence and peace. Protect them. May their testimony result in bringing others to faith in you. Thank you for your loving Providence. Have mercy Heavenly Father on these persecuted believers. Give them strength, patience, and trust in your Goodness and promises. May the Church in other places reach out to assist and encourage these brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.
