I was in church this evening, and a man came up to give his testimony. It was quite amazing to hear all the things he has been through and how God has saved him. It was very long and he went into a decent amount of detail, but just a brief synopsis: He was delivered from years of drug addiction (started when he was 12) and selling drugs, alcohol, criminal activity and all sorts of other wrong doings. He even despised God, and cursed anyone who ever mentioned Christ’s name. But he was saved because of the fervent prayer of his Mother (who’s prayers he wished would stop), and those who he did not know, but they believed in him. His jail sentence of 27 years was shortened to 2, and on the night he wanted to commit suicide, He found Christ. Prayer, calling on Christ’s name and pleading the blood can do amazing things and are truly powerful.
With that being said, these people who did not know this young man felt the love for him in their hearts and prayed for his Salvation. ~ God puts people in our hearts for reasons we sometimes may not understand, but when he does, never stop praying for them. No matter who they are, where they’re from or where they’ve been.~ Jahar needs our prayers, not only because he was deprived of his rights and the injustice that has occurred, but because he is a lost soul. And as Christians, it’s our duty to pray and bring God’s children back to where they belong. Win them for His Kingdom.
We must pray that Jahar’s heart is not hardened towards the idea of Christ being the Son of God. Pray that he has the desire to learn more and that his heart may be captivated by the love of Christ. That he may see the truth. By the Grace of God he shall be saved.
“And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” – 1 John 5:14
