Convert Dies in an Eritrean Dungeon

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16
Convert Dies in an Eritrean Dungeon

Somalia

 94 38
No one is expected to be a Christian in Somalia, so there is no organized church. Muslim converts exist as individual secret believers, and can only know a few others to make a small underground group. The largest known group is composed of five believers. For parents, it is dangerous to raise their children as Christians for fear of being discovered and executed. In September 2011, Islamic militants from al-Shabaab beheaded a 17-year-old Somali Christian near Mogadishu.
Pray:
  • For an end to the chronic political instability of this war-torn country
  • That God will be with Christians who face attacks from the extremist group al-Shabaab
  • For freedom for believers to worship and grow in their faith.
 Help Christians where the need is greatest!

  3. Father we ask for a complete change in the government in this land…Bring more moderate and tolarant government…we ask largely for the expantion of the gospel there…For freedom for the believers to worship You.
    Father protect the belivers and increase the number in the land.
    Send forth Your word swifitly and give them an awakening even today Lord.
    Reveal Your lovingkindness, compassion …heal and set free today.
    amen & amen
  4. My God, my Father, please help Christians in Somalia.
    And I would like that the leaders in Somalia respect the Article 18 of the universal declaration for human rights.
    In the name of your son Jesus.
    Amen.
  5. Dear Father, We ask You to protect those who love You and to give them courage, comfort and a very real realization of Your presnce. We pray You will change the persecutors hearts and that they will allow the believers to worship in freedom and that even they, themselves, will come to know You. We ask this in Jesus name Amen
  6. Dearest sovereign God, your power, your love, your judgements cannot be suppressed. You reign supreme. Please God in your mercy and grace, pour out your presence in Somalia, to protect believers, to give them courage to persevere in faith, and to find creative ways to come together to worship you. Disarm the power of al Shabaab so that the good news of the Gospel can spread throughout that thirsty land. Praying in Jesus most holy name, amen.
    • Lord our helper, our refuge and our strength, I agree with Elisabeth, as I give praise to you our King. It is not because you are powerless to assist the Christians in Somalia that al Shabaab is successful in tormenting and killing your people. Father, if they knew you they would not do such horrible things. But Father, they need a revelation of the true God who wants all men to come to him in repentance and surrender. Father of Lights, please bring that revelation of yourself to the al Shabaab. Visit them like you did with Saul when he persecuted the church in the early days. Visit them, Father, in dreams and visions. Let them know that the Jesus they are persecuting is the Lord who wants to save them.
      Lord, I know it looks like peace has been taken from the earth, but there are so many areas of the world where the gospel of the Kingdom of God and its peace have not been experienced. So Father, Soverign Lord of the Universe, do that which at the moment seems impossible. Disarm the power of al Shabaab so that the good news of the Gospel can spread throughout that thirsty land. Protect believers.
      Give believers the courage to persevere in faith, and to find creative ways to come together to worship you.
      This is the confidence that we have in approaching you, Almighty God, that if we ask anything according to your will, you hear us. And if you hear us, whatever we ask, we know that we receive it. In Yeshua’s name we pray. Thanks.
      Amen

Pour out Your Holy Spirit on the country of Somalia that there may be many more believers in the country.

  13. Father, I pray for this politically unstable country that is war torn. Be with the Christians who face these attacks. I pray you cause great fear to come upon the extremist group al- Shabaab: that they will flee from attacking Your people. Father shut down these political groups that are self serving, filled with greed, hateful, murderers, both in Somalia around the world. Keep Somalia in the palm of your hand, fight with those Christians who face attacks, comfort them, protect them, provide for them! Blessed Be the Name Of Our Elohim. Show Them Your Glory and Power. In the name of Yeshua I pray
  14. Holy Abba, may Your perfect will be shown at work in the hearts and bodies of our Somalian brothers and sisters and that their testimony of the True and Living God, Jesus the Christ, shine brighter than anything ever seen by their neighbors and community; that their persecutors’ eyes be opened and their hearts softened to see the love of God in their countrymen.

We ask that You help them find other believers to be encouraged by. Please appear to these Muslim extremists. Please show them how much You love them and how much they need You. We all need The Savior of the world,Jesus. We ask for an end to the political instability in Somalia. Please raise up strong, righteous leaders who will allow Christians to worship You freely.

Amen.
    • I join my heart and my faith in this prayer for our brothers & sisters in Christ and their families suffering in Somalia. In Jesus most powerful name. Amen & Amen! Ephesians 3:20
  24. Lord, I join my voice this morning with the others who are crying out to You on behalf of Somalia. It is difficult to imagine living in a place where your very life is in danger just for believing something. But I know that You have a plan and a purpose for this nation and for each believer living in it. I want to pray today for their strength. I ask that You would encourage them today and give them supernatural peace even amidst great danger. I pray for the political situation in this country – that Your will would be done and that somehow those who love You would be able to influence the direction of this country so that it can fulfill the purpose that You have for it. I pray for those who are fearful for their lives because of their faith – especially MBBs. Protect them in Your name, Lord. Equip them with whatever they need to serve You and live for You and bring You glory in this land. I pray that You would bring about the downfall of al-Shabaab in the name of Jesus. Destroy this group that seeks to destroy your people. Bring down any leaders who are seeking to bring harm to Your name and Your people. And finally I pray that You would GROW and FLOURISH the believers who are in the country of Somalia – grow them, embolden them, strengthen them, help them to go out into their nation and spread and preach the gospel. Teach them how to be a witness for You, teach them the words to say and commission them to go where You desire them to go. Give them sound teaching and keep them away from false doctrine. Anoint them with power by Your Holy Spirit that will enable them to perform great acts and miracles in Your name to give credit to their testimony. Be glorified through these believers and through what You do in the nation of Somalia, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    UNIUS REI VS NIMROD BAAL IMF 666 -- Micah 5:1-6 [a]Marshal your troops now, city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel's ruler, on the cheek with a rod. 2. "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans[b] of Judah, out of you will come for me, one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." 3. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return, to join the Israelites.

    God the Creator of the heavens and the earth and man said in the Holy Quran. (83) Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah (God) and That Which is revealed unto us and revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael That Which Was and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and That Which Was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and Their prophets from the Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. (84)Surah Al-E-Imran - ANSWER - IF YOU were doing the works of God and the prophets? you would never have killed innocent people (Christians), but Satan is your father, because you do the same works that murderer of Muhammad had done, in fact, you do not follow the teachings of Jesus, it is impossible for a Muslim to enter, in heaven if despise the Bible, or the Gospel, but many Muslims Satanists, they burn the Bible and the Gospel!
