This is an update on the Peter Kassig ISIS hostage situation in the Middle East, where God is answering our prayers.
It has been 26 days since Alan Henning’s execution video became public, and Peter Kassig (or Abdul-Rahman, as he prefers to be known) was threatened to be the next victim. However, new videos put out by ISIS (see http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/10/isis-shifts-their-social-media-patterns/381988/) give no information on his status. The other beheading videos were all released about two weeks apart. A number of calls have been made to spare Abdul’s life — he is an aid worker and devout Muslim. Even Abu Omar Aqidi, a high ranking official in the al-Qaeda sect Jabhat al-Nusra, has called for his release. ISIS is known for its well-organized social media activity, yet it seems to be slowly changing patterns, which to the eyes of faith is evidence of God’s great mercy.
Please continue for the Lord Jesus’ spirit to continue working in the hearts and minds of ISIS, their captives and the people ISIS are warring against, so that as many people as possible come to Christ and are saved.
I will continue to pray for Peter Kassig release and about ISIS. Also, we need to pray the same prayer as ISIS for Boko Haram, the other radical Islamic group killing many.
