Throughout Somalia, Christians face isolation and persecution. In the areas where Islamic extremists are active, anyone even suspected of leaving Islam is publicly executed. It is illegal to proselytize, and Sharia law does not recognize the right to convert from Islam. Christians face exclusion, torture, and death. Ask the Lord of lords and King of kings to give believers boldness to proclaim His Word; to protect those who trust in His name; to comfort believers in their troubles; to watch over His children; to enable believers to experience joy in their trials and learn perseverance and become mature; to give His Somali children patient endurance.
