Let's be praying for this woman, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, in Sudan saints! Please! This is important as many others besides her also will be put to death, essentially martyred, for having faith in Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 2:6-8 says: (6) Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (7) Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, (8) And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed."
So many people around the world are offended at Christ being praised and worshiped. Jesus said, in Matthew 10:32-33, "(32) Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. (33) But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven."
Pray that Meriam, and the many, many others like her, will continue to keep her Christian faith in the midst of severe persecution. She was raised as a Christian, but under Muslim Sharia Law, if her father was a Muslim then she by default is also a Muslim. But it gets complicated because she married a Christian man who has U.S. citizenship. Because she refused to renounce her Christian faith in a Sudanese court, she was given the death penalty.
If the UN and Sudans leaders stand up and put enough pressure on its government, they just might me able to get the court that dished out the death penalty ruling to reverse it, especially since the woman is currently 8 months pregnant and will need to nurse the child for quite some time. Also pray for her Christian husband. He feels so helpless. Pray that God would give him such a great peace and a rest that truly surpasses all understanding. No matter what happens, I believe that when it's all said and done, God will get the glory.
I just want to encourage and inspire as many people as I can for Jesus Christ.
