‘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 has been sharing her faith with a Syrian couple from 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.

- Pray for Zahirah as she pursues her ministry; pray the Lord will encourage her by allowing her to see His Spirit at work in her life and the lives of those around her.
- Pray the Lord may provide for the needs of her and her children. Ask the Lord to work in the heart of her husband to draw him to repentance.
- Please pray for this couple; ask the Lord to give them His grace and strength as they count the cost of following Him. Pray their desire to know the Lord will be greater than any feeling of fear or apprehension.
