Pray for "Suraya," Whose Three Children Were Kidnapped

[323] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Suraya.

Suraya’s ex-husband kidnapped their three children more than 13 months ago, after a judge granted her full custody of the children. Her ex-husband abused her when they were married, and he became even more abusive when Suraya converted from Islam to Christianity. He occasionally allows the children to send Suraya recorded messages, which usually include crying and pleas that she come and get them. Suraya said that when she feels she can’t go on, she sometimes feels the presence of Jesus in her house and a comforting hand on her shoulder. Please continue to pray that Suraya will be reunited with her children. VOM first posted about Suraya in April 2016:
