Hello and welcome to Into the Pray!

Our Friday session this week continues with our season focus of "All the Prophets" and we're delighted to be joined by former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali.

Michael served as the Anglican Bishop of Rochester between 1994-2009 whereupon he began working with the Oxford Centre of Research, Training, Advocacy and Dialogue (OXTRAD). His work with OXTRAD today is perhaps especially pertinent in our world at the moment with the unstable situation in Afghanistan resurfacing.

OXTRAD seeks to support the Church in situations wherever it is under pressure. You can find out more here.

If you would prefer to watch the Youtube version of this podcast, you can do so here.

Michael was born and raised in Pakistan in the 1950s during which time his Father (a Shia Muslim) converted from Islam to faith in Jesus Christ. It was during Michael's teenage years at University in Karachi that he received the gospel himself. This was, in part, thanks to an Anglican Chaplain who, entirely incognito, had registered as a 'mature student' in order to spread the gospel among the students - where there's a will there's a way!

Many thanks to Michael and his team for helping us with the episode this week.

This thrice-weekly podcast is essentially a faith-based ministry so if you would like to support it (and our wider work) in an ongoing way, please consider doing so here.

If you would like to watch our latest YouTube video - The Terror of the LORD - you can do so here.

Our flagship 2021 content is
here.

Until next week, let's be found praying, "Come, Lord Jesus!"

Love,
