Prayer for Persecuted and Persecutors!

Matthew 5:44

44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

 

We must, as intercessors for Global Advance take our prayers to a new level.  As we have seen through info from Alpha Relief, and in these emails from Oliver, persecution is taking on deeper, more often, and more insidious actions.   Feel free to post your prayers on GroupMe but please don't use names or specific locations.   

 

The email traffic below is between Ken and Oliver Zia in Pakistan.  Ken forwarded this to me this morning so that I could share with you all.

 

PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD, POST TO OTHER PRAYER SITES, DISCUSS OUTSIDE THE CONFINES OF THE IC AND IMMEDIATE GLOBAL ADVANCE STAFF..... STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.

John,

 

Brother Ken,

Thank you so much for keeping my family and I in your prayers in this time of need.

 

I went to Lahore to deliver a lecture on minority rights in Ambassador Hotel on 22nd July. THE WEATHER in Lahore was not good as well. I have been followed by the unknowns.

 

Then my fellows suggested me to remain inside, I wanted to see Pastor Daniel Raffique, and give a copy of Church Planting Manuel but then decided to hand over the copy to one of his branch Church members to deliver to him for the fourth coming Seminar in Rawalpindi in August. 

 

Thanks Lord for His Divine protection up till now. I believe the same in the future. Bro not I but the leadership in Quetta along with the youth needs your fervent prayers.

 

Another bad news the car of one of our church Pastors has been burnt completely by some unknown people while it was parked outside of the home. please pray for that family.

 

Oliver
