Only Somalia has Sharia Law. Although the others officially do not have Sharia Law, in some places they are ruled by pockets of extreme Islamists. For instance, in North-eastern Kenya the terrorist group Al-Shabaab rule as if they do. Christians in Somalia and N-E Kenya are terrorized by this Islamic group, and many have lost their lives or been seriously injured just because they are followers of Jesus.
Al-Shabaab has been known to separate crowds of people into distinct groups of Muslim and Christian, and shoot all the Christians, as in their attack on the students of the university in Garissa in March of 2015 and the passengers on the Mandera-Nairobi bus in December 2016.
- Pray that all Christians in these countries remain true to the Lord in faith and good works.
- Pray that the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against all opponents of Christ and that they will come to a knowledge of the truth that will set them free from the bondage that is holding them.
