This prayer request comes from our dear sister Naomi (Naomi’s blog page)
Dear Acts 12 Movement,
Please pray for the life and salvation of Peter Kassig. Peter is currently being held as a hostage by ISIS (Islamic state).
He converted to Islam during his imprisonment yet he was recently shown in the execution video of aid worker Alan Henning. From all reports ISIS are planning to murder Peter some time in the near future.
Peter is a gentle soul, a self-described “hopeless romantic and idealist” who desperately needs to find Jesus before his life is taken. Peter has found comfort in Islam, so he is a man of faith, but he has faith in the wrong God. Please help me pray for him to be shown God’s true character, love and mercy in the person of Jesus Christ.
In 2012 Peter founded a humanitarian aid group called SERA (Special Emergency Response and Assistance), so he is also a person with a strong social conscience. The non-governmental organisation, based in Gaziantep, Turkey, but not currently functional, provided food and medical supplies for refugees fleeing Syria’s civil war.
Please help me pray for Peter’s life to be spared and for his salvation. His soul is hanging in the balance.
Please also help me pray for Peter’s captors, that they would receive repentance unto life as well and be saved.
Thank you for listening and helping with this need.
Together we can petition the Lord for mercy for all concerned.
Love in Christ,
