13. How did prayer help one family who were unjustly treated?
13 Consider the experience of a sister named Vero, who lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Vero, her unbelieving husband, and their 15-year-old daughter had to flee their village when it was attacked by a militia group. Along the way, the family came to a roadblock where the militia detained them and threatened to execute them. When Vero began to cry, her daughter tried to calm her by praying out loud and by repeatedly using Jehovah’s name in her prayer. When she finished, the commander of the militia group asked, “Young girl, who taught you to pray?” She replied, “My mother did, using the pattern that is found at Matthew 6:9-13.” The commander said, “Young girl, go with your parents in peace, and may Jehovah your God protect you!”
This study article is all about how Jehovah helps those who show faith in him. Faith in Jehovah overcomes obstacles, injustice, great storms and how Jehovah helps materially with those in need.
Paragraph 13 is just another made-up experience that the Society loves to shove onto their faithful followers. A sister named Vero ( no last name ) who lives in Congo ( no village name ) is detained by a militia ( no name of militia ) and are threatened with execution. When Vero's daughter prays out loud to Jehovah, the commander is so moved he say's the following, “Young girl, go with your parents in peace, and may Jehovah your God protect you!”
In the mean time, Jehovah has a tough time helping brothers and sisters in Russia.
