Pray for "Zahirah," a Christian Convert Forced to Leave Home
“Zahirah,” a Christian convert from Islam, was abused by her husband long before she became a Christian. And her husband became even more violent when she put her faith in Christ. She and her children left home and are now living in a building shared by several families. Zahirah is sharing her faith with a Syrian couple with a Muslim background. Though the wife has had a vision of Jesus, the couple decided to become more devout Muslims for fear that their relatives would kill them if they converted to Christianity. “Jesus died for me,” Zahirah said. “How can I give him less? I need to give my whole life for Him.” The Syrian couple told Zahirah that they are now reconsidering their decision. Please pray for this couple. Pray also for Zahirah as she pursues her ministry, and pray that she will be granted legal custody of her children.
