God will never leave us

As a teenager, it can be hard to be a Christian. There’s all kinds of pressures facing us, and holding onto God can be really tough. For Farah, from the Middle East, her faith in Jesus is shared by her family, but being a Christian has had some severe consequences for them. Her home was raided by the authorities, her things were searched, her dad arrested. She’s been spied on, followed and had to leave her home country all because she and her family have chosen to believe in Jesus. Watch her story below:


  • Is there anything in this story that has stuck with you?
  • If faced with prison and hassle from authorities, how would you respond?
  • Farah’s dad kept sharing about Jesus even after he was told doing so would get him in serious trouble. He knew the cost, but wanted others to know Jesus too. Ben inspired by Farah’s dad – how can you take a risk for Jesus this week?


  • Thank God for Farah and her family. Ask God to give them courage and strength as they settle into life in a new country.
  • That Farah’s dad will be able to find stable work and income.
  • The family will be part of an incredible and supportive church community.
  • That Farah would do really well in her studies and find brilliant friends who accept her and her beliefs.
