Pray for Muslim convert
« on: May 12, 2004, 03:51:50 PM »
Please pray for D. He is a convert to Orthodoxy from Islam and has just gone back to Saudi to visit his father. He should be returning later this month. Do please pray for his safety now and his safe return.

Good heavens!  The gentleman is Saudi himself and converted?  If so, I'd be concerned that he doesn't get killed or imprisoned in S.A. for apostasy from Islam.  Yikes!  I've prayed for him.

I don't want to say too much. He's an Indian whose family lives in SA. It is very hard and dangerous. He surely needs our prayers.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I am praying for D also. May Christ protect him and cause him to be a light for other Muslims to find their way to Christ in Orthodoxy.

I lived in that part of the world for 8 years, and I am all too familiar withwhat could happen if someone is suspected of apostazing from Islam.

Peter, if your friend D ever needs material explaining Christianity against false Muslim claims, here is a web site that I am associated hith. It also has a large section of converts from Islam to Christianity testamonies:

The prayers of the Mother of God be with him.

Prayers!
Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Prayers for him and his family despite the age of this thread.

Whatever happened to him? Is he all right?

Lord, have mercy. St. Nicholas, Please keep him safe.

Lord, grant Thy servant protection and safety wherever he goes, as the shining and living light of Thy holy Gospel on earth.

Lord Almighty, we are thankful for Thy wisdom, we are thankful for Thy guide us, we are thankful for Thy keep us save, with or without our earthly body. We ask you to protect our brother D. please guide him, please help Him to be a light unto the S.A. nation.
And even though it is hard, but because of Thy command, please open the eyes of those who meet D. So they can see Thy Glory trough Thy servant. Amin

Lord have mercy and protect his servant!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
