Christian Teenager Cursed by Father

[254] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Carla.

Carla, age 16, came to faith in Christ in 2021. Though she grew up in a culturally Christian home, her widowed father practices animistic beliefs. When he learned about Carla’s decision to follow Jesus, he tried to force her to marry a non-believer. After Carla refused, her father became enraged and tried to place a curse on her. He also bribed a government official to bring a state case against Carla. Carla fled to an uncle’s house and has dropped out of school amid the hostility she is experiencing from her father. Pray for Carla’s hope in Christ to remain firm, and pray for her father to trust in Jesus for salvation.

  • "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
    adversaries;
    For false witnesses have risen
    against me,
    And such as breathe out violence.
    I would have lost heart, unless I had
    believed
    That I would see the goodness of the
    LORD
    In the land of the living.'
    Psalm 27:11-13. Amen.
