Reclaiming Jesus in a Time of Crisis


This film shows how the Holy Spirit is at work even in the darkness of these difficult, political times. We feel the Spirit calling us to reclaim Jesus from those who have appropriated and hijacked his name for worldly power: https://sojo.net/media/reclaiming-jesus-time-crisis



 

Update from Release International


Please pray for Iranian Christian Naser Navard Gol-Tapeh who was arrested almost two years ago. He hadn’t been a Christian for very long prior to his arrest. This dear brother in Christ needs your support and your prayers.

 

Pray:

 

  That God will strengthen Naser (a recent convert) physically, spiritually and emotionally

  That Naser will experience a profound sense of God’s presence with him in the prison cell

  For physical healing of his painful gum infection and any other sickness

 

For more information see the noticeboard and online at: https://releaseinternational.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/PP-Naser_Navard_Gol-Tapeh_v5.pdf

 

Please also pray for Abraham Ben Moses, recently sentenced to four years in prison in Indonesia for religious defamation and for Asia Bibi in Pakistan who was sentenced to death for blasphemy in 2009 and is awaiting an appeal. Pray that the case will proceed quickly and justly, and for the protection of all involved including the Chief Justice.
