Daily Prayer - Sunday 05 August 2012
“My attitude has changed. Before I was often very irritated. Now I can come here.” In January, Hina, a 19-year-old Christian girl in Pakistan, started following a one-year, church-run course in sewing and literacy, which is funded by Barnabas. The course is opening up new worlds for her. Before she was always at home helping her mother with household chores, unable to read or write. Her mother never left her alone at home out of fear that her daughter might be attacked or raped by their Muslim neighbours. Now she can read from the Bible, her favourite book. Pray that all 17 women following the course this year will be transformed by what they are learning. Ask the Lord that their new sewing skills will enable them to earn an income and provide for their families.
