She was only 11

by  – CURE

 

She was only 11. Two men brutally raped her. They tore open her ligaments and tendons at her hips badly, so badly that as she healed physically from this horrible act, scars encased her hip joints so that she could no longer straighten her legs – could no longer walk normally.  She was only 11.

She came to us at CURE Ethiopia a year later, when she was 12.  We could offer her free, loving, respectful care.  Care to release those scars around her hips.  To make her free again to walk as a girl should.  To run and jump and play again.

The other day, as she came into surgery, she was shaking.  This only became worse as she lay down. We exposed only so much as we had to, but I am sure there were memories that returned to her.  We spoke words of reassurance.  We gave her medication to help ease the fear.  The surgery was successful to make her legs straight and freely moveable again.

I pray God will release the scars that are sure to be encasing her heart.  I pray she won’t have to carry this memory, this burden for the rest of her life.  I pray that her mind would become free. Only God can do this part.  He is a God of liberation, healing, and restoration.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.

Psalm 40:1-3

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all of those who have been brought near to God are on is not one that is about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but rather focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer and sound biblical teachings.

We, also, differ from most ministries in another key area and that is working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4, by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected and re-connecting them, one soul at a time to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” which is made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
