Praying the impossible in Uzbekistan

September 20, 2019

In Matthew 19:26, Jesus said, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

And that’s the hope we’re clinging to today as we visit the country of Uzbekistan.

As we’ve mentioned before, there are only 25,000 known Christians in Uzbekistan (in a country of nearly 28 million) and they need our prayer. It is not uncommon for these brothers and sisters to face persecution, arrest, torture, and targeted attacks from government-controlled police and media.

Yet praise God that in spite of this harassment, the church continues to grow, mainly in urban areas, where about one-third of Uzbeks live.

Today let’s pray for these brave saints and ask God to grant them freedom to worship without fear. And let’s boldly ask Him to bless Thru the Bible’s broadcasts heard in Uzbek and Russian. May the millions of Uzbek people be changed as they hear the name of Jesus.

On Monday the World Prayer Team is traveling on our knees to Yemen. Invite a friend to join us and meet us there!
