Breaking through tradition and superstition

January 16, 2024

Meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ …. -Colossians 4:3

We’re praying Colossians 4:3 as we travel on our knees through southern Asia. Together let’s thank God for opportunities to reach listeners like Rukshana in India:

“Ten years ago, because of my illness, I came to know the Lord. My friends asked me to visit a prayer center and listen to your program. Since then, I began attending church and have shared Your teachings with others. Now my husband has passed away and all my children are married. Since I am alone, I find it difficult to tend to my needs. But I watch your program, which gives me courage to live for Him and trust Him.”

India is one of the most religiously diverse nations in the world, bound by thousands of years of traditions and superstitious beliefs. Today ask God to open the doors for THRU the BIBLE to reach more people, in more languages, with the truth and mystery of our Savior Jesus Christ. May the next generation in India be united in their worship of the living God.

1.8 billon Muslims have yet to hear the name of Jesus. Tomorrow we travel to and pray for those living in the Middle East.
