Pray for Somalia. Religion is a major influence on the lives of Somalis. More than 99% of Somalis are Muslim, most of them Sunni Muslim. Sharia law is the law of the land. Somalis mix Muslim teaching and tradition with Sufi spiritualism which is characterized by chanting, whirling, chewing khat, and falling into a trance as a way to commune with Allah. Most Somalis believe in mortal spirits called jinn, who are said to be descended from fallen heavenly spirits. Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda, is fighting to take over Somalia and impose a stricter form of Sharia law. Pray to the One True God to break the power of Satan and tear down spiritual strongholds in Somalia; that Somalis will know the truth and be set free; to raise up workers to fight the lies of Satan with the truthful speech and the power of God; to reveal Himself to Muslim believers in dreams and visions.
