#8 - SUDAN
Islamic law is the foundation of Sudan's legal system - leaving Islam is punishable by death. This means Muslim-background believers must keep their faith secret. Those from Christian backgrounds can be more open about their faith but face increasing pressure.
For protection for secret believers, and for them to find fellowship with others they can trust.
For churches that have lost their buildings to find ways to keep meeting together.
For courage for believers to stay faithful to Christ in face of pressure and attack.
SCRIPTURE: John 16:33
