Please check out this blog and pray for Cyd Myzell. She has been working in Afghanistan as a relief worker. She has been kidnapped by the Taliban. Pray for this sister who is suffering for following our Lord. My heart aches for her and all who love her.
Father,I thank you that You have counted Cyd Mizell worthy to be persecuted for Your name. In my human fear, I pray for her physical protection. Even more, I pray that she may have opportunities to share Your love with her kidnappers. I pray that You will use her testimony to bring many to know You. I pray that you will bless her ministry in her prison as You did for Joseph, Paul, Peter and all those we admire in the Scriptures who were imprisoned for You. I thank you for the work that she does and her trusting heart. Hold her close–let her feel Your presence and fill her with Your peace, strength and wisdom. Thank you for allowing her the privilege of being able to identify with our many brothers and sisters around the world who suffer for You daily. Thank you that she has counted the cost and chose to follow You. Thank You for her book of Acts kind of faith. Comfort those who love her and are anxious for her safe return. Draw their hearts close to Yours. Fill them with Your strength and peace as well. Glorify Yourself and restore this woman after Your heart to her ministry. We desire You to be glorified in all of this.
