Please pray for Rifqa Bary

Teenager Rifqa Bary, 17 years old, grew up in a Muslim family, originally from Sri Lanka. They moved to Ohio when she was 3 years old. Over 4 years ago, she became a Christian, but did not tell her parents, because she knew the consequences. When their mosque found out by seeing her Facebook page, they reported it to her parents, and told her dad to "take care of it." She fled to Florida after her dad (who has been abusive to her for many years) threatened to kill her. There were several court hearings in Orlando, FL, and she was sent back to Ohio, where there has been a court hearing, and will be another one in Jan. She is living in a foster home, no visitors allowed. A CAIR-appointed lawyer is representing her dad. CAIR has been shown to have terrorist ties. In Muslim countries, it is a capital crime, punishable by death, for any Muslim to convert to any other religion.
“When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.” — ‘Umdat al-Salik o8.1-2
