Pray for Christian Mother Sentenced to Death for Apostasy

[705] prayers in [28] nations have been posted for Meriam Yahia Ibrahim.

A 27-year-old Sudanese woman, Meriam Yahia Ibrahim, was sentenced to death in early May for apostasy. Eight months pregnant at the time of her sentencing, she gave birth to a baby girl on May 26. Ibrahim explained to the court that she had grown up as a Christian under her Christian mother's care, but the court convicted her of apostasy because her father is Muslim. In addition, she is to receive 100 lashes for a charge of adultery, relating to her 2011 marriage to a South Sudanese Christian man. Since Ibrahim's father is Muslim, the marriage is not recognized under Sharia law. Her own family filed the complaint about her marriage, resulting in the charges. The court gave her three days to recant her Christian faith, but she refused to do so. Ibrahim's 20-month old son, Martin, and newborn daughter the couple named Maya, will be held in prison with her until her execution.

You came to set the captives free and Meriam is captive of a godless people. Nothing can be done apart from your hand moving so please deliver my sister from the sentence of death and set her free along with her children glory to U.
  • Dear Father, thank You for the faith of Meriam & that she & her children are out of prison. But we know that she is still not safe & is still not out of Sudan.
