Young Believer Threatened, Held Captive By Her Muslim Family

[190] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Nia.

After Nia’s Muslim family learned of her Christian faith, they prepared to behead her if she didn’t say an Islamic prayer. Out of fear, Nia recited the prayer. Her family subsequently kept her locked in her room for several days. Though they recently released her, they have forced her to take psychiatric drugs and see an Islamic leader for “healing.” Her Christian friends and church community are unsure how to help Nia, knowing that intervention could lead to the family hurting or even killing Nia. Pray for Nia’s safety, and pray that her family comes to faith in Christ through her witness.
