Christian in Coma After Beating

[185] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Simon.

Simon became a Christian after receiving an audio Bible and listening to God’s Word. He was raised in a family that practices a form of fetish worship common in Burkina Faso. As the eldest son in his family, Simon was expected to lead the burial ceremony following the recent death of his father. As a Christian, Simon did not want to lead or participate in the animal sacrifices typically required in these traditional services. Still, he wanted to help bury his father. When he arrived at the funeral, his family and village would not allow him to participate and started beating Simon’s wife. She escaped into the bush with their child, but Simon was beaten unconscious. He is still in a coma at a local hospital, and the whereabouts of his wife and child remain unknown.

  • LORD, I pray that Simon has recovered according to Your will & reconciled to his family. I pray the villagers were brought to a place of repentance of their sins- worship of false gods, idolatry, & murderous hearts and actions. May they have broken and contrite hearts which received Your word in the A1611 Bible and this man's witness. In Christ's name
