New Believer Threatened, Homeless

[190] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for New believer facing hardship.

A Christian brother is facing hardship after leaving Islam to follow Christ. This brother came to faith in Christ just weeks ago. After his girlfriend found out about his newfound faith, she reported him to his Muslim family, who locked him in a room for more than 24 hours to try to force him to recant his faith. The Christian brother fled after his release because his family threatened his life, and he is currently staying with another believer while he looks for a new home. Despite the opposition, the Christian brother remains committed to Christ. "He is firm in his commitment to follow Jesus," a front-line worker said. "He wants to devote more time to studying the Bible. Please pray for peace, comfort and joy in Christ." Pray also that this believer’s family will come to know Christ and cease in their persecution of him.
