The New Government And The Future of Somalia

June 5, 2013 by Open Doors in Stories of Persecution

About five months ago, Somalia elected a new government. Since then, multiple measures have been taken to enforce security in Mogadishu and throughout the rest of the country.

The BBC recently interviewed the new president of Somalia about the current state and the future of his country. If you have a few minutes, it is definitely worth watching.

One of the things that struck me most in this interview was that the President was hopeful, but unsure of when stability would return to his country. He noted that the country had been without a centralized government for 43 years, so it would be difficult to tell when the country would become a fully stable society again.

We humans, whether President or citizen, do not know what tomorrow will bring, specifically for Christianity in Somalia. We hope for a brighter future (especially for our persecuted brothers and sisters), but are unsure of what lies ahead. This is why it is so vital for us to pray for Somalia during this time of transition.

Our God is powerful enough to touch the hearts of leaders and to restore peace to the land. Will you take a few moments to pray for the future of Somalia and for the Christians who live there?
