Man Kills Son, Threatens Daughter-in-Law for Following Christ

[280] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Lea and children.

Lea and her husband, Solomon, lived with Solomon’s father, who was a priest in the traditional religion of their village. When Solomon’s father discovered that Solomon and Lea were going to a Christian church, he killed Solomon and threatened Lea, kicking her and her three children out of his home. Unable to provide for her family, Lea sent her two older children to live with her sister in a nearby village while she works to expand her sewing business to be able to fully support her family. “God gives me peace, and I know he is with me,” Lea said. “Please pray that God will help my business grow, and for protection from my father-in-law.”

Write your own prayer for Lea and children

  • LORD, please comfort this sister through Your Holy Ghost. May she have become prosperous and especially a great witness so that others in her village have repented of their sins. She lives in a dark place where the people are under false gods. May they come to learn the gospel from the A1611 Bible and develop broken & contrite hearts so You increase.

  • "Teach me Your way, O LORD,
    And lead me in a smooth path,
    because of my enemies.
    Do not deliver me to the will of my

    And such as breathe out violence.
    I would have lost heart, unless I had

    In the land of the living."
