PRAYER REQUEST: Cult poisons young Christian in the Gulf

Friends, our partners in the Gulf region sent us an urgent request for prayer as they work on a case recently which involves an influential cult leader who is responsible for abusing and poisoning a young Christian woman named Leena*. Leena is currently in the hospital fighting for her life.

Our partners run an initiative called “Daughterhood,” which works to protect Christian women from persecution like rape, molestation and humiliation. These women are particularly targeted by these types of abuse and violence in order to force them to isolate and renounce their faith in Christ. Disturbingly, the persecution also sometimes includes the poisoning of pregnant women.

The Daughterhood team includes women and men who are pastors, healthcare workers, counselors, advocates and social workers. This team stands with the victims works to build their communities into safe havens for the women in the Church. Right now, they are working hard to help Leena however they can, and to seek justice for this crime against her.

URGENT PRAYER IS NEEDED

Please pray for the strengthening of Leena and her community’s faith.

 

Pray for God to have mercy as the Daughterhood teams fight for justice in the midst of these acts of brutality.

 

Pray God preserves Leena’s life.

 

Pray for our partners to be able to raise awareness against the cult that preys on young Christian girls who often think they have no one to fight for them.
