Release International Prayer Shields, Somalia, Those Who Mourn


Somalia

In Somalia, ‘Amanda’ was beaten by her husband after she gave her life to Christ. He later abandoned her. Pray that God will make prosperous the small shop she has set up with the support of our partner.


Somalia

As he works with others who have had to flee Somalia, ask God to bless Pastor Samuel’s discipleship of Muslim-background believers, born out of a desire to help them stand firm in their faith and not waver due to isolation.


Somalia

Thank the Lord that ‘in all things God works for the good of those who love him’ (Romans 8:28). In Somalia, Al-Shabaab published Pastor Samuel’s story on billboards. ‘They were preaching the gospel to those I could never reach!’ he says.


Somalia

Pastor ‘Samuel’, a former imam who came to know Jesus in the 1980s, has led many to Christ in his new homeland, after fleeing persecution in Somalia. A fatwa has been declared against him by Islamist extremists al-Shabaab.


Somalia

‘Lula’ had to leave her family in Somalia after coming to know Jesus. Her father publicly called for her to be killed, and her house was demolished. Thank God for her enduring love for her persecutors.


Somalia

Please pray for Release International partners as they provide vital practical and spiritual care for Somali Christians who have left their homeland.


Prayer of mourning

We know that mourning is a common experience for persecuted Christians and we continue to pray for those suffering as a result of persecution. Thank you that all who know and love the Lord Jesus are caught up in his victory over death.

‘Where O death is your victory? Where O death is your sting?’

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
