Pray for Said Musa

Articles Collection cover image

On Sunday I often post a prayer here at the blog. Today I want to ask you to pray. You may have heard of Said Musa, a man imprisoned in Afghanistan and awaiting execution. His crime? He converted to Christianity from Islam. He needs our prayer.

Here is what Denny Burk posted yesterday. “Said Musa is married and the father of six young children. He has been a Christian for eight years. Compass Direct News reports:

In the two-page letter, a copy of which Compass received in late October, Musa addressed Obama as ‘brother’ and pleaded with the international community: ‘For [the] sake [of the] Lord Jesus Christ please pray for me and rescue me from this jail otherwise they will kill me because I know they [have] very very very cruel and hard hearts.’

Musa wrote of being sexually abused, beaten, mocked, spat on and deprived of sleep because of his faith in Jesus. He wrote that he would be willing to suffer for his faith in order to encourage and strengthen other Christians in their faith.

So why don’t you pray for our brother, that the Lord would spare his life. And if that is not the Lord’s will, that Said would be willing to face death bravely and with his eye on the Savior.
