Pray for Algeria - facebook page

The official notice that a village pastor in Algeria received confirmed that his church had been ordered to close. Several churches have since received written orders to cease all activities, and authorities have closed a number of them for operating without a license. Islam is the state religion in Algeria, where 99 percent of the population of 40 million are Muslim. Since 2000, thousands of Algerian Muslims have put their faith in Christ. Algerian officials estimate the number of Christians at 50,000, but others say it could be twice that number. Pray that the closure of the Churches will not negatively affect the faith of the Christians living there. Pray that God will open new doors for more planting of Churches all over Algeria (The Bible, Isaiah 54:17).
