Pray against Injustice upon Christians

  • North Korea- Christians make up 1.2% of the population (25 million). Christians in North Korea must worship the nation’s leader, and belonging to another religion makes you an enemy of the state. Thousands of Christians are imprisoned, and many have reportedly been tortured and executed. Believers meet secretly, and risk arrest and death by doing so.
  • Somalia- less than 1% (mostly likely in the hundreds) of the nation identify as Christians. Islam is the state religion, and converting to another religion is illegal. The Islamist group al-Shabaab has stated that it wants to rid Somalia of all Christians, and people suspected of following the faith are likely to be killed on the spot. Many meet in secret, or don’t meet at all, and cannot own Bibles.
  • Syria- About 4.9% of the population identify as Christian. An estimated 700,000 Christians have fled Syria since the start of the civil war in 2011. Parts of the country have been claimed by Isis. Christians are often abducted and killed.
