Pray for 17 New Believers Facing Persecution from Family Members

[313] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for 17 New Believers Facing Persecution.

Seventeen Liberian believers are facing persecution from their families after their conversion from Islam to Christianity. They have been threatened, beaten and ordered to stop attending church and listening to Christian music, and many have fled to nearby villages for safety. The young believers placed their faith in Christ after hearing the gospel from visiting Christian pastors, who also gave each of them a pocket-sized Bible. Although they were initially afraid to listen to the pastors for fear of persecution, they continued visiting with them and other believers at night. Eventually, the new Christians’ relatives noticed they had stopped attending Mosque and learned of their conversion to Christianity. Please pray that these new believers will continue seeking Jesus and will grow stronger in their faith.
