A Prayer for Bangladesh
Almighty God, we pray for Samuel, a young, newly married Christian in Bangladesh who is suffering from religious discrimination in his workplace. His Muslim employer, who has ties to a fundamentalist political group, has told Samuel that he would get a promotion if he converts to Islam, and that learning Arabic would be part of his job training. Honest and upright, Samuel is contemplating quitting his job; but the prospects of finding other employment are dim. Lord, uplift and guide Samuel in his struggle to earn a living, strengthen him in his faith during this time of trial, and give him hope for abundant life in you, in Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
