Maryam’s Awakening

Maryam’s Awakening

“But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. ‘Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.'” Peter 3:14

Maryam called Mohabat TV to plead for prayer. Recently divorced and separated from her children, she desperately sought peace in her religion but couldn’t find it. “I am tired of my religion,” she lamented. “I am looking for a relationship with God.” One of our counselors introduced Maryam to Jesus… and in that moment, her heart was awakened to life! She immediately accepted Jesus as her Savior and then asked how she could become a pastor. Despite the risks, Maryam’s already told her cousin and a classmate about Jesus.

Maryam’s testament exudes a true surrender and trust in the Lord. He does make all things good in His ways. Maryam was willing to put her fear aside and keep her sight set on Christ.

Prayer Point: May we have a newfound surrender to Christ’s ways, amidst ridicule, hatred, and chaos in the world.

Amin and Laleh’s Belief

“For I will restore you health and heal you of your wounds.”
Jeremiah 30:17

Amin* and Laleh* called Mohabat TV to ask for prayer for their son who was paralyzed following an accident. During the prayer, their son was able to blink his eyes! The family shared this with the phone counselors, fully seeing the Lord’s healing power.
*names changed for security

How easy it is to lose faith, especially in times of pain and suffering. Amin and Laleh’s testament to remaining faithful and putting their hope in the Lord is truly powerful. 

Prayer Point: May we obtain a faithful spirit to God, amidst the joys, amidst the sorrows.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Naser’s Strength

Naser’s Strength

“For our momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”

2 Corinthians 4:17 

 Naser, sick with cancer, accidentally phoned into our call center from the hospital. He was watching television, and while changing channels, intended to call another channel. However, he reached our team and by the grace of God, began asking questions about the Gospel. As one of our counselors explained the Good News, he prayed for his salvation. Moments later, the counselor prayed with him for his healing and belief. Naser then felt a great peace and proclaimed how happy he was that he “accidentally” called Mohabat TV. 

Thank God that Naser “stumbled upon” Mohabat TV. Especially in times of great pain and suffering, it is easy to lose the hope and peace that Christ offers. He sanctifies us. He makes us holy. He makes us pure. 

Prayer Point: Let us pray for the healing of Naser, as well as the strength bear our own pain and suffering.

 

 

 

Lila’s Healing

Lila’s Healing

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

John 1:9

Desperate for healing from a life of prostitution, Lila was flipping through television channels and came across Mohabat TV. After watching a couple of our shows, she called into our call center. Lila called in a second time just a couple weeks later, proclaiming, “I had turned to prostitution to make a living but found myself depressed and disillusioned. I called the counselors at Mohabat TV for comfort. They told me about Jesus, His love and His forgiveness of my sins!” 

“Depressed and disillusioned” is how Lila described the season she was in- until she found Christ and His redeeming love. So often we thing our sin, that brings such shame and guilt, prevents the Lord from loving us deeply. How wrong we are! God is a merciful God.

Prayer Point: Let us pray for forgiveness for our sins and wrongdoings, turning away from shame and guilt and falling deep into the Lord’s arms instead.
