Christian Woman Kept at Home by Relatives Opposed to Christianity

[174] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Sita.

Sita is a 65-year-old woman and the only believer in her family. She was an active member of the church, but three years ago, her son married a woman who is aggressively opposed to Christianity. The daughter-in-law turned the family against Sita. Since that time, the family has barred her from attending church. Sometimes she is able to slip out to a women’s fellowship group. Front-line workers have given her an audio Bible so that she can listen to God’s Word when she is alone at home.

  • Lord,
    Thank You for Sita and her willingness to follow You despite the opposition from her own family. It is incredible to me that a daughter-in-law would seek to hurt her mother-in-law in this fashion. Please soften her heart and the hearts of their family toward Jesus. Please provide Sita with all of her needs and enable her to fellowship.
