New Christian Faces Daily Struggles in Orthodox Jewish Culture

[205] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Noa.

A former Orthodox Jew who came to faith in Jesus Christ is now homeless and has little hope of finding work. After meeting a Christian worker nine years ago, Noa gradually came to understand and believe the gospel. And recently, he placed his faith in Jesus as Savior. His decision, however, was met with intense ridicule from his community and his family, who kicked him out of the house. He is currently sleeping at a friend’s place of business while looking for work, but his options are limited. As an Orthodox Jew, Noa’s education was almost entirely focused on learning the Torah and Jewish traditions. In addition to persecution from his family, Noa has experienced harassment from radical anti-missionary groups like Yad L’Achim. Pray that Noa will find a place to live, that his needs will be met and that he will be able to attend school and pursue a broader education.

Don't let him be tempted beyond what he can bear, but deliver him and give him a home, an education, and a job. Thank you for faithful friends helping him endure rejection. Give him your joy in his suffering.

  • Father God, I praise you for Noa. Please help him to grow in faith of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Let His family be convicted of the Jewish prophecies that speak of their Messiah, that He has come, and His name is JESUS! He told the Jews they did not believe in Him, because they did not "know the scriptures" that proved Him (John 5:36-40).

  • We pray for Noa, that You may clean of the crust on the eyes of those he encounters, so that they may see the truth: Romans 1:16
    For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
