Imprisonment of Meriam Ibrahim

Hebrews 13:3 NOG "Remember those in prison as if you were in prison with them. Remember those who are mistreated as if you were being mistreated."

Meriam Ibrahim with her newborn daughter, Maya, who was born at the Omdurman women's prison last week.
Meriam Ibrahim is a Sudanese woman (married to a US citizen) who was recently imprisoned for refusing to deny Christ. Meriam was born to a Christian mother and a Muslim father, so in the eyes of Sudan, it automatically made her Muslim. But this was until the government discovered that she was truly a Christian... Her Christianity makes her an apostate (a crime in Sudan), and the only penalty to apostasy is torture and death. Meriam entered the Omdurman women's prison pregnant with her daughter, Maya, so the prison decided to punish her with 100 lashes and then kill her after the birth. This is directly from Satan himself!!!

You can read more about it here and here.
"She's still on death row for her Christian faith. She faces torture - 100 lashes for marrying an American Christian - before she is to be hung. It's pure evil. Her son Martin, a toddler, and her newborn daughter Maya - both U.S. citizens - suffer in prison with her. Sudan has publicly stated that executing her for being a Christian isn't "violating human rights." In the same statement, it outrageously claimed it supports religious freedom." -Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel
 We, as being free, can do something... We can pray, intercede, contribute, sign petitions, ... But we can't let this go for anybody!

Galatians 5:23 NOG "You were indeed called to be free, brothers and sisters. Don’t turn this freedom into an excuse for your corrupt nature to express itself. Rather, serve each other through love."

I pray that Meriam and her children have the strength to survive victoriously and stand firm in Jesus...  How blessed will they be when they enter heaven, but Lord willing not because of the hands of evil executers

James 1:12 NOG "Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him."

Thank You Jesus for hearing us, I know that You are in control!!

I hope that you have a beautiful day praising and thanking the Lord for our freedom!

In all sisterly love,


  1. I think this is SO HORRIBLE! I already heard about it through Facebook, but this is the first time I've seen a picture of her baby.. Did you hear that she is going to be able to live with her baby for 2 years until her baby is weaned? Oh, I pray that those 2 years will be used for good and she will be saved!

  2. Wow, no, I didn't know about this... It is so cruel!! You're right, there is so much, Lord willing, that she can teach Maya while she is with her! Oh, and we have to pray for their persecutors too... How lost they are!

    Thanks for telling me about it!

    In all sisterly love,
