KENYA: Christian Family Bribed to Convert then Attacked

A Christian family living just outside Nairobi, Kenya has been facing attack and threats by a local group of Muslims.

Hassan has been beaten on multiple occasions, the most recent attack occurred on 19 January. His family has received constant death threats and bribes to convert back to Islam.

His mother said that these attacks have left them in fear. They fled from Somalia after Hassan’s father died, looking for a safe place in Nairobi to lead their new Christian lives. However, all they have had since then is fear from the local Muslim community, including from their own family members.

Though Kenya is a majority-Christian nation, it suffers constant attacks from the terrorist group al-Shabaab from Somalia. Local Muslim background believers also often suffer at the hands of Muslim Somali communities.

  • Ask the Lord to minister to Hassan and his mother to bring healing and comfort. Pray they will be shielded from further harm.
  • Ask God to strengthen them in their faith so they may not be despondent or fearful but filled with the peace of God.
  • Pray the family will receive much encouragement from local Christians in the community. Pray too the local authorities will ensure their safety.

    Please tell all my brother and sisters in Christ they are loved and prayed for by many Christians all over the world. You know how I know because I don’t know all my brother and sisters in Christ names but often the Holy Spirit will have me praying for all my brother and sisters in Christ all over the world. Prayers for encouragement, peace that surpasses ALL understanding, prayers that you will all know God loves you and will never leave nor forsake you. That when you have no Bible He will send by His Holy Spirit a reminder of His Word and true Christian songs lifting your spirits in Praise. Prayers for the Lord to supply all your needs. Prayers for your protection and if it is the Lord’s will for you to die for His name sake, strength beyond understanding to be faithful even unto death. If I am often moved to pray then I am sure God has many true Bible believing Christians praying for you all. We don’t deserve our Lord’s amazing love but He has promised nothing will seperate us from the love of God and He teaches us to love one another for this is His commandment that we love one another that your joy may be full
