Being a part of a church community is all that Layla has ever known. She attends weekly, is very involved, and even serves where she can. In her North African culture and background, it is very important to show commitment through involvement. She recently entered a discipleship relationship and started reading the Word fervently. Sometimes she even reads 10 chapters a day. She wants to understand God’s Word, but still feels like there is so much to learn. Layla is very intelligent and is often recognized for that academically. Please ask the Father to connect her head knowledge to her heart. May the truth of verses like Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV) resonate in her heart: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Praise God for the work that He is already doing in her and in her community!
