Sh Br 49: Walking Uprightly

Shiite Muslims – a people God is pursuing to be Jesus’ Bride

The next Ashura begins approximately December 29, 2008 to January 7, 2009. Fast and pray with us, and tell your friends! Download a copy of the ten day prayer guide in English, Chinese, Korean, or Portuguese at:

Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right. Psalm 106:3 (NIV)

"Praise God," Salam replied when I asked how his family was doing after he lost his job. Salam is a Shiite husband and father - a man of justice and integrity living in a land of corruption and scandal.

Salam has lost multiple jobs. He was fired when he didn't give a high grade to an undeserving student - even when that student's father was the university dean. At another university he refused to cooperate with corrupt leadership and colleagues, and they got rid of him. His educational computer software had to be abandoned because pirated computer software became all too common in his homeland.

Most recently Salam resigned as mayor of his Shiite village. He opened a medical dispensary, paved and lit roads, and gave the community their first little fire station. Even though he struggled as the mayor to make enough money to provide for his family, Salam always put his mayor's paycheck back into the village's budget.

Even though Salam gave much to the village, many people began to spread rumors about him, and some even called his home threatening to kill him. In a land where people in authority commonly steal from the community, Salam was doing the opposite. The pressure became so bad that he resigned.

Salam has lost or quit jobs for different reasons, but the root is always the same. Salam refuses to compromise his integrity and is unwilling to give God a bad name. As a Shiite Muslim man of peace, Salam prays daily. Every month now Salam wonders how he will be able to provide for his wife, children, and mother. He knows he can't depend on his government or the economy of his nation, but he is fully trusting God.

Friend of His Shiite Bride, pray for Salam and his family - and other Shiite families like them - to be blessed as they maintain justice in their corrupt villages and cities. Pray that Salam's entire family will come to know Christ personally and be bright lights of Truth in their Shiite village - boldly proclaiming the gospel no matter what the threats.
