Ramadan Day 12

Link to 30 Days Prayer Calendar


Leader: General Mohamed Abdelaziz
Population: 3.3 million (8,400 Christians)
Main Religion: Islam 
Government: Islamic republic 
World Watch Rank: 13
Citizens are Muslims by default. The government restricts the evangelisation of Muslims and the distribution of non-Islamic religious materials. Conversion to another religion is punishable by death. Extremist group al-Qaeda in the Maghreb is gaining support and is also monitoring Christians in the country. In 2020 a young woman was beaten and burned to death by her family when her Christian faith was discovered. Over 20 Christians - some with children - received dead threats and most had to flee their homes to escape a similar fate.

Please Pray:

  • That this young church will become deeply rooted in faith, so it can withstand the storms of persecution
  • For wisdom for Christian parents as they bring up their children in a Muslim society that can be very hostile
  • That believers will be equipped and trained to reach people groups who never heard the gospel.
