Pray for Somalia

​Somalia is located on the Horn of Africa. Its terrain consists mainly of plateaus, plains, and highlands. The weather is hot year-round, with periodic monsoon winds and irregular rainfall. Somalia has an estimated population of around 16 million. Over 2 million live in the capital and largest city Mogadishu. 85% of its residents are ethnic Somalis who have historically inhabited the country's north. Ethnic minorities are largely concentrated in the south. The official languages are Somali and Arabic. Almost all Somalis are Muslims, most of them Sunni.

      Capital City:                        Mogadishu

      Government:                        Federal parliamentary republic

      Major People Groups:         85% Somali, 4% Others

      Population:                         15,893,219

      Religion:                             99.8% Islam (official) 0.2%

Somalia is number three on the Open Doors World Watch List of countries where Christians face persecution. For more than 25 years Somalia has been a safe haven for Islamic militants who constantly target Christians both in Somalia and in neighboring countries. Groups like al-Shabab operate with little pushback and control large parts of Somali territory. The small number of believers in Somalia are largely Christians who have converted from Islam. Christians are viewed as high-value targets by al-Shabab. Even when Christian converts are not targeted by Islamic extremists, they are intensely pressured by their family. Any conversion from Islam is seen as a betrayal to family and community, so even just suspicion of conversion can lead to harassment, intimidation and even murder.

  • Pray that God will protect His children in Somalia.
  • Pray that God will stop al-Shabab from killing Christians.
  • Pray many will turn to the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Pray that the Lord will preserve the faith of our Somali brothers and sisters, especially those facing persecution.  
  • Pray that the witness of believers will be strong.

 

Prayer resources:

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Rom 8:35-37 ESV)
