God, we love you! As your Church help us do what it takes to let the people of Kazakhstan grasp the Good News that Jesus is coming back like lightning! (Matthew 24:27)
I am a twenty-three year old woman. My family situation is very difficult, especially with my father. I finally ran away. I went through some very hard circumstances. One day a friend introduced me to a Christian family. They welcomed me and told me about the Messiah. They said, “The Messiah is able to help you in your suffering.” Later I got online and was looking for a solution to my problems. Again, I was shocked to find information about the Messiah. I met Christians and they prayed with me a lot. One day I woke up and I had such joy in my heart. I heard a voice say, “Accept the Messiah. Accept the Messiah.” I accepted Christ and was filled with the Holy Spirit. I felt new life come into my body and fill me with strength and renew my soul. Within a week, God began to prompt me to forgive my father. Pray that God will give me faith to trust Him and forgive my father. Pray for others who are bound by the slavery of bitterness and unforgiveness.
Pray that God will give them strength to forgive.
“Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.” (Luke 10:3 ESV).
Lord Jesus, you have sent your followers in Kazakhstan out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Be their ever-mindful, every-caring shepherd as you grow them in confidence and steadfastness to trust you as the wolves encircle and threaten. Would you give them a supernatural, attractive gentleness that even their suffering might a witness to their enemies who would see them divided and lost. (Luke 10:3).

God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Kazakhstan grasp the Good News that Jesus knowingly took one step after another toward Jerusalem knowing He would be condemned to death, mocked, flogged, crucified and then be raised on the third day!

God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Kazakhstan grasp the Good News that Jesus' cross was the one place in the world's history in which your Father's justice AND mercy were simultaneously fulfilled as He was marred beyond human semblance, despised, rejected, sorrowful, acquainted with grief, smitten, afflicted, pierced, crushed, chastised, and anguished (Isaiah 52-53) so that WE don't have to be.Read
