Hey guys,

This is a sobering post, but I feel gripped by this situation.  You can find the article on Fox News here:,2933,289317,00.html

 This girl is 19 years old, and she will be beheaded by the Saudi government very soon unless she receives a pardon.  The reason for here death sentence is that she was allegedly taking care of a baby and while feeding the child, the baby died.  She has been charged with murder and thus will be sentenced to death in the name of Allah.

 As I read this article I was shaken to the core by this “godless” atrocity that will take place.  19 years old!! The “crime” (or accident) was commited when she was 17!  She’s just a child!  And she will be slaughtered.  In any case, the reason for this post, is that I invite you to join with me in interceeding for this young girl.  I’m pleading with the Lord, that He will move heaven and earth to rescue this girl from her captors.  I’m pleading with Him that He will appear to her in a dream and that He will reveal Himself in all of His beauty, splendor, and love.  He is not this “god” who demands a beheading for an accident.  He is a loving and compassionate savior who longs for her.  Please pray with me that God will deliver her and intervene in the situation to save her.  Pray that her accusers will give her pardon so that she may live and experience the salvation of the Lord.  I invite you.

“Arise, O Lord; Save [her], O my God!!  For you [will strike] all [her] enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.  Salvation belongs to the Lord…” (Psalm 3:7-8)
