Pray for "Suraya," Whose Children Have Been Kidnapped

[665] prayers in [30] nations have been posted for Suraya.

“Suraya,” a Christian convert from Islam, was abused by her husband long before she became a Christian. He became even more violent after she turned to Christ, even trying to kill her. A judge had granted Suraya custody of their children, but her ex-husband has kidnapped them. Suraya’s children have been allowed to leave her voice messages, but she hasn’t spoken with them directly. In the messages she has received, the children are often crying for her to remember them. Suraya’s ex-husband does not answer her calls. Please pray that Suraya’s children will be returned soon and that the Lord will comfort them.
