Pray for Maldives - facebook page

The Maldives is Asia's smallest country by area and population known for its lucrative tourism industry. Despite tourism, it is an extremely closed country, boasting 100 percent Islam, and heavily repressing Christian influence. Only a handful of secret Believers live in the Maldives, believed “fertile ground for recruitment” to radical Islam. Dozens of Maldivians left have joined IS. In the last year, the Maldives elections brought surprising results with the opposition leader Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, defeating the former president, Abdulla Yameen who now faces corruption charges. The new government has begun reforms.

Praise Report
Give praise for the shake-up in the government. Pray that this may shake up the nation’s repressive laws and human rights abuses (The Bible, Deuteronomy 32:3).

Prayer Requests
Conversion to Christianity results in a loss of citizenship. Churches and Christian gatherings do not exist. The few Maldivian Christian Believers live in fear of being discovered. Pray for religious freedom in Maldives. (The Bible, Isaiah 43:1).
Pray that the new government will be moved to pursue genuine change and usher in an era of greater openness (The Bible, Mark 1:3).

Call to Salvation
Pray that despite the closed nature of the country, that Maldivians will have opportunities to hear the Gospel (The Bible, Luke 7:22).
