A new friend I met converted to Islam because she married a Somali man. We have a lot in common. Please pray that we can have deep conversations about what she understands about Islam and that she will come to understand what it means to be a Christ follower. Pray for her salvation, and that of her family.
Praise God for the good discussions with Somali ladies in our weekly Bible studies. Pray that they would grow in the knowledge of the Lord. Pray also for perseverance in their different situations of life and that they would learn to cast their cares on Jesus who cares for them
Pray for young Somali men. As they grow, they are susceptible to radical ideas that lead them to become hostile to Christians and the gospel. Please pray that those young men who are in their teens and early twenties right now will instead put their faith in Jesus the Messiah and become zealous for Him.
Pray for a family of Somali refugees in Uganda, for an opportunity to connect more with our chaplain so they can hear and believe the gospel.
Praise God for the good discussions with the Somali ladies in our weekly Bible studies. Pray that they would grow in the knowledge of the Lord. Pray also for perseverance in their different situations of life and that they would learn to cast their cares on Jesus who cares for them.
Please pray for doors to be opened for more refugees to come for medical help. We’ve noticed that the flow of Somali refugees has decreased since the beginning of the year. We assume the cut in funding for medical expenses in the refugee camps means the patients cannot afford to come.
Please pray for a Somali man named Ali. Pray for opportunities to connect more with the missionary he met and had friendly talks with. Pray for his salvation.
Pray that God might raise up a “sent one” from this city to go to another people and so transform the hearts of all local followers to think first of others and of His Name among all nations.
This week we focus our prayers on the Somali people. Pray the Lord would ‘bind the strong man and plunder the house of Islam’ particularly the room of Somali (Mark 3:27). O Lord, do a new thing among the Somali people. Have mercy on those who have committed acts of violence. May they repent and find forgiveness and shalom in Jesus. Have mercy on those who have suffered persecution, would you strengthen weak knees and give grace to stand firm in the faith. Have mercy on those who are weary of war and feel hopeless. May they find hope in Jesus.
Please pray for Abdulaha, a Somali patient. He got an infection after surgery. He was witnessed to and agreed to be given more literature, but at the next visit he hid under the blanket pretending to sleep. Pray that he will see the glory of God, that his infection stops, and that a door to his heart is opened.
