Dr. Nazir Bhatti & family of God,
My name is Robert (Bobby) Jackson. I live in Front Royal VA in the United States. I am praying for you & your nation. I applaud you - my brothers & sisters in Christ who love our Lord & hold to your faith in the face of such evil & darkness!
Like many other Christians in America I am often kept busy with my own life/family/job concerns. Generally speaking, it is hard for me to give much of my time or energy to people or causes that are not “right in front of my eyes.” In the past year there have been a few international situations that our Lord has brought to my attention for me to pray about. One of those situations was what happened with Malala Yousafzai. Below is what I have been praying & sharing with friends and fellow believers. This message is contained between <>
When I heard about Malala being shot Oct. 9 I began praying that our Lord would spare her life and appear to her in a vision. I have seen lives turned around when the Lord has spoken in dreams or visions. In this way he can bypass our prejudices & personal preferences. We have God’s promise that this is one way he will speak to us in these last days. – Acts 2: 17-21 Malala’s life precious to God. Also, she has already had an amazing platform of communication. If our Lord saves her life and offers her salvation she could be the key to open the gospel to the whole nation of Pakistan.
Please join me in prayer –
"Lord, we declare your healing power to save Malala’s life. You paid for Malala’s entire life of sin & purchased her eternity with your own blood. We ask for your grace to reach out to her. We declare your healing to her body. Daddy God, give her a vision of your Son. Reveal her true destiny as your daughter. Raise her up that she may declare to her nation & all nations that you alone are God! Lord, bring your Spirit filled children to Malala to love & touch her life.
Tuesday October 16, while listening to the song "Here I am to worship" by Hillsong I saw the Lord extend His hand to Malala. As the band sang "Call upon the name of the Lord & be saved" I saw her take His hand. Then I saw her extending her hand to her nation as she sang "Call upon the name of the Lord and be saved."
Love, joy, peace & power in Jesus name!

I don’t usually pay much attention to international news…until recently. Just recently I heard about the Rimsha Masih case. I am glad to hear that she was released from prison. However, I am very sad to hear about all the families from her community that had to leave their homes in fear.
I am praying for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit’s power on Pakistan. May the love & power that was seen in the first century church be surpassed by what the believers in Pakistan experience & carry forward. I am praying for you in agreement with your brother Paul “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.” 1 Corinthians 2:4-5
In Rimsha Masih & Malala Yousufzai I see our Lord using two “weak & foolish” people to put to shame the “strong & the wise”. 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 This is just like our Daddy God! How appropriate that He would use young girls to bring worldwide attention & begin to cause radical change to Pakistan. In Isaiah 11:6 we read about an unusual “Kingdom” reality. The wolf, the lamb, the leopard, the calf and the lion will be led by a child. I am praying “Lord, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Your kingdom come, your will be done in Pakistan as it is in heaven. Father God, stir up a great revival with your supernatural power! Let it begin with the children!”
May your sons & daughters, your young and old men and women receive dreams & visions that will bring the Word of God to life & cause multitudes to call on the name of the Lord and be saved. Acts 2:17-21.
I pray “Lord, your Spirit says in your word that no weapon formed against us will prosper and every tongue that rises against us in judgment we will condemn. As your children, this is our inheritance and our righteousness is from you! – Isaiah 54:17 Daddy God, I pray this for all of your children in Pakistan. Disable & destroy the weapons aimed against your children there. Also, may your love & power shine through them and enlarge your kingdom, let multitudes of lost people be adopted into our family.”
Again, for you my brothers & sisters in Pakistan I pray “Sovereign Lord, you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. Lord, hear the threats of your enemies against your children and enable them to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy son Jesus.” Acts 4:24 & 29-30 paraphrased
I’m praying for you and encouraging others to do the same!
