PERSECUTED CHURCH - Mother sentenced to Death for the Name of Jesus

Please remember this sister in prayer, Asia Bibi, a wife, a mother and a believer, in Jesus Christ.  I heard of her case from recent news reports and learned more in detail From Voice of the Martyrs website where we read:

Asia Bibi, the wife and mother who was imprisoned and charged with blasphemy in June 2009, was sentenced to death on Nov. 7, 2010, according to Asia News.

Please Pray!
Pray that Asia Bibi and her family will find comfort and peace in the Lord. Pray that her sentence will be overturned, and pray for a repeal of the blasphemy law that has been abused repeatedly to cause undue
harm to many Christians.

Asia’s husband, Ashiq Masih, and their children are constantly on the run in Pakistan due to death threats. Other vocal supporters of amending the blasphemy law have had to flee the country because of threats to them and their families.

You can learn more about Asia Bibi, how to pray, and how to intercede in her behalf with the Pakistan Government on the Voice of the Martyr's Website:   - Search for "Asia Bibi" to find several VOM articles.
