Lenten Focus: Kenyan Church

For more on my Lenten Focus, see my Ash Wednesday post. A quick summary is that I am spending Lent fasting and praying for the Persecuted Church and I invite you to join me.


Kenya is not a country that most people associate with Christian persecution. In the last few years, Kenya appeared at number 40 or lower on the list, but this year it is number 19 on Open Door’s World Watch List. It has a secular government and a majority Christian population. However, the unrest around the world, particularly with its Islamic neighbor Somalia, has spilled across the border. Pastors have been killed and churches burned.

From Open Doors:

Homegrown radical Muslims and militants crossing the border from Somalia are severely persecuting Christians. The government’s approach to pushing for an unbalanced secularist agenda also has an impact on the Kenyan church, as some of the agenda being pushed by the government contradicts with the values and principles of Christianity. Violence has increased in different parts of the country particularly where Islamic radicalism is high. The future of Kenyan Christians will continue deteriorating as long as the underlying issues are not properly and adequately tackled. The future of the Kenyan church appears precarious. The government’s stance towards religious institutions is becoming less and less positive and the church faces intensifying levels of persecution, especially from the militant group al-Shabaab.

Prayer Points:

  • That growing persecution and violence toward Christians by al-Shabaab will decrease in 2015
  • That God would enable Christian leaders to reach out to those in the Muslim community
  • For peace and comfort for the families of Christians who were killed in 2014, including 36 quarry workers murdered in December outside the city of Mandera
