Persecution in Sudan

Pray for the persecuted!

Religious freedom is severely restricted by government and society. Islamic groups, wanting to form an Islamic state, persecute the church. Conversion is not recognized: believers from a Muslim background are treated as if they are Muslims. Following South Sudan’s secession from the north in July 2011, the President asserted that Sudan’s constitution would be based on Sharia (Islamic law). Many believers have since left the country. The possibility of war between Sudan and South Sudan is a concern for Christians – warfare can easily cover up acts of religious persecution.

Pray:

Praise God that, despite the difficulties, the number of Muslim-background believers in Sudan is rising

For peace and stability in this volatile region

That God will strengthen individual Christians to stand strong.
