Recently, prayer has been sought for a Saudi convert to Christianity who has several court cases against him and is under pressure from his in-laws.

In a further development, on 5 May his wife was contacted by her family and told her mother was ill after receiving a Covid-19 vaccination. However, when she arrived at the family house she was locked in and is no longer allowed to leave.

Her family tells her they believe her husband will be sent to prison soon and it would be better for her to stay with them. The family is also pressuring her to divorce him.

The Saudi convert is accused of trying to convert Muslims to Christianity and of helping his sister leave the country against the wishes of her husband and the wider family. His next court hearing is on 30 May, meanwhile, he is trying to secure his wife’s release.

Let us pray.

  • Ask the Lord to intervene in this case so that soon this couple will be reunited. Commit to the Lord the upcoming court hearing, pray for justice and favour.
  • Pray the couple and their son will feel the Lord’s peace and sustaining presence in this difficult and uncertain time.
  • Pray for the wider family, ask the Lord to bring revelation of Jesus as Lord so they too may know Him for themselves.
