July-Sunday 10

Dear Lord Jesus, You said that unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground it remains only a single seed, but if it dies it produces many seeds. We pray that these words will comfort the loved ones of many who have died for You. Today we remember especially the widow, son and three daughters of Hossein Ali in Bangladesh, hacked to death by three motorcyclists as he took his regular early morning walk earlier this year. We praise You for his decision 17 years ago to leave Islam and follow You, for His witness that brought two other Muslim families to know You, and for His courage in resisting the threats and pressures from local Islamists. We pray that his death may bring others to know and love You. (John 12:24)
