Christian converts from Islam face the strongest pressure from their family, friends and neighbours to recant their Christian faith. Christians are affected by the growing Islamic conservatism in both their private and business lives. Employment, especially in the public sector, is discriminatory against Christians and children of Christians face discrimination and bias by teachers and fellow students in schools. Additionally, they are forced to take Islamic lessons. Converts are sometimes forced to go into hiding and many young Christians leave the country as they do not want to live in a society increasingly focused on sharia law.
You can pray Proverbs 4:18:
“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”
