Libya | Christian Sentenced To Death

Please pray for a young Christian in Libya who has been sentenced to death. Since his conversion four years ago, this Christian brother was arrested several times, and pressured to renounce his faith in Jesus. Because he has refused, a local court has sentenced him to death.

He is forced to publicly display this verdict outside his house and even to announce it in a local newspaper and on a local radio station. He has not had any access to legal representation throughout his case.

In Libya, converting from Islam is no longer illegal since the law changed in 2014, but there is enough ambiguity that the local court can take advantage of the lack of clarity.

Pray For Libya:

  • Pray that the Lord will strengthen this believer and keep fear away.
  • Pray that he will be allowed a fair trial and legal representation.
  • Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide those around him to act and make decisions.
