God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Kazakhstan grasp the Good News that we are justified IN Christ! (Galatians 2:17)
Malik is a 49 year old man from Gilgit Baltistan area. He had a lot of doubts about Islam that led him to explore Christianity. He shared that he had a very hard time finding evidence of any miracles Mohammad performed. One of the popular miracles Mohammad performed was splitting the moon in half. The more he looked into the history of this event the more disappointment he felt. No one had recorded this event to be true in history. On the other hand, the miracles Jesus performed had countless witnesses and had been acknowledged throughout history. His Christian friend told him about Jesus’ authority to perform these miracles. Malik learned Jesus not only healed people but he also forgave sins. He was eager to learn what more Jesus could do and as he learned about Jesus’ authority it became clear to him he needed to follow Jesus. He prayed for his salvation and became a follower of Jesus Christ. Pray for Malik as there are many others who are exposed to Christianity but need guidance to lead them in the right direction. Pray for him to grow in his faith and lead others who are in search of the truth.
“I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the war horse from Jerusalem; and the battle bow shall be cut off, and he shall speak peace to the nations; his rule shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.” (Zechariah 9:10 ESV).
Lord God, would you break the weapons of spiritual and physical war that harm the church in Kazakhstan and would you speak peace to this and to every nation as you build your Kingdom to the ends of the earth. (Zechariah 9:10) May your peacemaking spirit take deep root in the church in Kazakhstan and would you grant them to shake the foundations of society with the power of their sacrifice, service, and forgiveness.

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
