Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
Meriam Ibrahim spoke out on the National Day of Prayer about the horrors she experienced during her time held captive by the government of Sudan.
She said that at one point she was “heavily pressured” by guards for three days to renounce Christ and become Muslim but she refused each time.
“Meriam revealed how she refused to waver in her faith in Christ, believing God would save her even as she was shackled in chains and sentenced to 100 lashes and death. Making matters worse, her infant son was in prison with her and she was pregnant with another child at the time — forced to give birth while shackled in chains,” said in an article ACLJ Executive Director Jordan Sekulow, who introduced Ibrahim at the Virginia event.
“In the face of persecution and told by Sudanese officials that she could avoid a death sentence if she renounced her Christian faith, Meriam stood strong and refused to reject her faith. For three consecutive days, she was told to renounce Christ. For three consecutive days, she refused.”
Ibrahim has said that her faith was “the only weapon” she used to survive her captivity.
Ibrahim said that her family had to leave behind very successful businesses in Sudan and they’re rebuilding in America from the ground up.
