    Pray for the Persecuted Church - August 30, 2016 - Asia Bibi, a Christian Pakistani mother who has been on death row ever since 2010 for allegedly committing blasphemy, will have her final appeal heard by Pakistani's Supreme Court during the second week in October. Asia has had several other appeals during her almost 7 years of imprisonment during which 3 of her supportive legislators were assassinated. Blasphemy accusations against Asia took place in 2009 between Asia and a group of Muslim women who were working together in a field and Asia drank from the same water bowl as the Muslim women. An argument ensued and the Muslim women reported to a local cleric that Asia had blasphemed against Islam by saying, "My Christ died for me. What did Mohammed do for you?" Pakistani courts have been transformed into little more than a rubber stamp for accusations against Christians. Asia's case has received worldwide attention as many human rights and religious freedom organizations have taken up her cause. Petitions have been signed for her release - but to no avail thus far.

    Asia's final appeal the 2nd week of October is her last chance to avoid execution. Her only other chance would be a pardon by Pakistan's President.

    Let's add our prayers to the thousands of others around the world who have been and will be praying for a favorable outcome for Asia. Pray that her faith and her witness for Christ will remain strong - that she will be able to physically endure this critical process and decision. Pray for her family who have suffered in many ways during these years of separation.

    "Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you also were suffering." --Hebrews 13:3

    May you and Asia be blessed as you pray.
