Local Prayer Point

Study after study confirms that people are willing to come to church if they are simply invited. This even more true for Easter and Christmas. In two weeks we will celebrate Easter.

Please pray for opportunities for Southeast to invite family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to celebrate Easter.

Pray for courage as we proclaim the resurrection and invite people to our Easter worship service.

Over the last few years, the situation for Christians in Somalia has only worsened. Islamic militants have intensified their hunt for Christians, whom al-Shabaab operatives regard as high-value targets. Upon discovery, Christians are often killed on the spot. Al-Shabaab holds to the strict Islamic doctrine of Wahhabism and advocates for Sharia law in every facet of life for Somalis. While al-Shabaab poses a severe threat to Christians in Somalia, believers are also persecuted by their families and the community at large. If a Somali is suspected of conversion, their family members and clan leaders will harass, intimidate or even kill them.

Please pray:

  • That the Lord will build His Kingdom in Somalia in the midst of harsh circumstances.
  • For protection over Somali Christians who must be discipled in secret.
  • Thank the Lord for His promise to build His church and pray that He will remain at work to draw many Muslims to Himself. Pray that He will make Himself known to them.
