Man Threatens Wife for Choosing Christ

[378] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Bright.

A member of a tribal group in Southeast Asia was forced to flee her home recently after her husband, who abuses alcohol and drugs, threatened to stab her. Bright became a Christian two years ago, at age 59, through the witness of a pastor. Her tribe, the Tai Dam, worship spirits, especially those of their ancestors, and the women are responsible for maintaining home altars. Bright’s husband often told her he would stab her if she did not abandon her Christian faith. And he recently warned her that if she continued to follow Jesus he wasn’t sure what he would do to her. Bright’s Christian friends then took her to another city for her safety. “She is a strong believer, and we believe that God brought her to us so that He can strengthen her even more,” a VOM contact said. Please pray that Bright’s husband will come to know Jesus.

  • Dear Lord, we thank You for Bright! We celebrate her life and how she stands for You. We know that certain spirits can only be cast out by prayer as Jesus taught. So hear our united prayer for both her husband and the Tai Dam community that worship false gods May the light of Christ in Bright cause radical transformation in her spouse & tribe.
