Ears to hear
In the country of Yemen—that’s in the northern part of Africa, a little boy named Abdu* sits outside the front door of the house. Abdu can’t hear anything, but he is always happy to shake hands, give a “thumbs up,” or try to sneak his hand into a pocket! He shoots of fireworks throughout the day, so it is not surprise that he is deaf. It seems impossible to think that this little guy could ever hear the Good News of Jesus.
Be we know God, He is in the business of doing the impossible. God heals people, and He can heal Abdu. Pray for Abdu that he will have “ears to hear” what millions around him have not heard. In Yemen, there are very few people who know about Jesus. Even if Abdu cannot hear with his ears, he can hear with his heart. Pray for someone to tell him about Jesus and break up the silence around him.
