Young Man Disowned for Becoming a Christian

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

Ghana is a majority-Christian nation, but animistic beliefs are practiced in some areas. As a boy, Noah was chosen by his father to take over as the family’s shaman, responsible for carrying out occult rituals upon his father’s death. Through the witness of Christian friends, Noah gave his life to Christ. When his father noticed Noah no longer worshipped idols, he forced him out of the house, and Noah had to survive on his own in the jungle for three days. A Christian family eventually provided a place for him to live. Noah visited his father, who told him he would be disowned if he didn’t return to the family’s ways. Noah refused to deny his Christian faith and is no longer in contact with his family. Front-line workers have been helping the teenager. Noah asks for prayers that his parents will also become followers of Christ.

I pray he has been given protection & provision and continue to witness for the truth of the gospel according to the AV1611 Bible.

  • Dear Father, thank You for Your goodness towards Noah in that You provided him with a family who took care of him while he was abandoned. Lord Jesus, You said it is better for one to be hot or cold rather than lukewarm. Noah has shown that he is fired up for Jesus but his parents seem very cold. Intervene and cause Noah's parents to be converted. Amen.
