This was posted by a friend to an adoption group. This is real not a forward. Notice the list for which we are asked to pray. In our easy peasy western lifestyle, do you suppose we would ever be able to stand up to the kinds of threats other believer's live daily? I would hope!
Subject: VERY URGENT REQUEST!!!
Please pr' for a local believing friend of ours who has been kidnapped / arrested (we are not sure which) by "police" 12 hours ago. Makset, our friend, is a UN refugee for religious reasons. He is a Christian who fled for his life from Uzbekistan and was temporarily living here in Kazakhstan. The UN has called all police stations and they say they know nothing of his arrest. Please pr' for our dear brother Makset.
Pr'for:-endurance in torture
-strength and wisdom
-intimacy with the L'rd
-safety for his wife and 3 boys
If you or I were apprehended like this we would certainly treasure every pr' that was offered up for us. Imagine yourself in Makset's situation, then cryout to the Father on his behalf.
Thank you for pr'ing for our brother.
