To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
The leader of the Church in Makouda, in Tizi Ouzou province – the second-largest Protestant congregation in Algeria – has been warned he faces charges for building violations. Pray that these threats will come to nothing.
Pray for a landowner in Azaghar, Algeria who has been charged with allowing unauthorised worship on his land. A church whose building was sealed in 2018 has been meeting in a tent there.
Christian convert ‘Ahmed’ was charged in Algeria with ‘undermining Islam’ after his wife filed a complaint against him – but he was later acquitted. Pray that ‘Ahmed’, whose wife has now divorced him under pressure from relatives, will be allowed access to his daughters.
Rachid is an Algerian Christian with a Muslim background whose Muslim wife charged him with inciting her to change her religion. Thank God that he has had his acquittal upheld. His wife ended their ten-year marriage in March.
Pray that Algeria’s Christians will be a powerful witness to God’s love and grace, especially to those officials who are obeying orders and shutting churches down.
Pastor Youcef is Vice-President of the Protestant Church of Algeria, an organisation of 45 churches. Several others have been ordered to close like his. Ask God to grant these church leaders wisdom.
A church and its Bible school in Boudjima, were closed in May, despite the fact that its pastor, Youcef Ourahmane, says the church has applied for a permit. Pray that this congregation in Algeria will continue to enjoy strong fellowship.
'Let us be on the side of those who sit in jails and are sentenced to death for their faith. Let us pray for them and help them'.
