Urgent Prayer Needed


for Rifqa Bary!


"Rescue those who are drawn toward death,
And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter."
(Prov 24:11)

"Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die."
(Prov 31:8)

"The LORD executes righteousness
And justice for all who are oppressed."
(Ps 103:6)


As you may be aware, Rifqa Bary is a 17 year-old ex-Muslim teen who converted to Christianity and is now fighting to stay in the U.S. She fears being forced to return to her native Sri Lanka with her parents, which will result in her death. Islam recommends death by stoning as the punishment for converting from Islam.

Brethren, we have written in the past about Honor Killings (see here for more information). Here is the situation in Rifqa's own words:

"In 150 generations in family, no one has known Jesus. I am the first — imagine the honor in killing me."

"There is great honor in that, because if they love Allah more than me, they have to do it. It's in the Koran"

"I'm fighting for my life. You guys don't understand. … I want to worship Jesus freely, that's what I want. I don't want to die." (courtesy of Fox News Article below)

Juvenile Court Judge Elizabeth Gill has indicated she will hold another hearing soon to discuss Rifqa's immigration status, which will affect her ability to remain in the U.S. Please pray specifically for Judge Gill to execute justice on Rifqa's behalf.

"The king's [judge's] heart is in the hand of the LORD,

Like the rivers of water;

He turns it wherever He wishes." (Prov 21:1)

Please Cry Out in intercession:

For Judge Gill to Execute Justice in Rifqa's favor (Prov 21:1, Deut 27:19, Ps 37:6, Is 30:18);

For Protection; that her life will be saved! (Ps 17:7, Ps 9:9-10, Ps 35:17);
