God, we love you! As your Church, help us to do what it takes to let the people of Jordan grasp the Good News that Jesus has authority even over all of nature! (Matthew 8:27)
Hamid is a Muslim background believer who is facing a lot of difficulties and persecution because of his faith. He was reported and arrested by the police and is going through a court case because he decided to follow Jesus. He has been beaten by the police to threaten him and the law may not help him. This is a fear most of the Muslim people have when they decide to turn away from Islam.
Please pray for Hamid as he goes through this difficult time. He has more enemies than friends and his family may also not step up to help him. Pray for his protection, strength and comfort from God.

Lord Jesus, you have gone before us on the Way, showing what it means to be faithful unto death. Would you give your church in Jordan the grace to remain faithful in proclamation and holiness unto death, that they might joyfully receive the crown of life that your perfect grace has prepared for them. (Revelation 2:10).

God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Jordan 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
