Algeria

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Algeria’s National Global Strategic Institute and the Institute of Strategic Studies Islamabad have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together in various fields such as research and consultation on global challenges, formulation of common approaches on the issues of common interest at the regional and international levels and evolving a joint scientific vision. Algeria is working under the leadership of President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune to promote relations and diversify partnerships with Pakistan. Pray that the two institutes would meet the challenges of globalization and help accommodate the accelerating complicated global transformations and achieve better interaction and fruitful cooperation. Pray for Algerians to experience real revolution and life transformation through Jesus Christ, the Messiah (The Bible, Romans 12:2).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Algeria moved two spots up and is listed in the 24th position in the World Watch report 2022 of Christian persecution on the rise. Abdelmadjid Tebboune is the president of Algeria and  Aymen Benabderrahmane has been the prime minister since 30 June 2021. Algeria is the largest nation in Africa. The Berbers were the native people and the nation’s first inhabitants. Islamic expansions during the 8th and 11th centuries were highly influential, as the new religion and Arabic language were brought to the region. French ethos and socialist ideas became expressive during the French colonial rule, which began during the 19th century, similarly affecting Algerian culture and thought. The struggle for political control has cost the lives of over 100,000 people. Islamist factions continue to emerge, and the government, which identifies itself as Islamic, is making concessions to these extremists at alarming rates. The serious influence of Islam in Algeria and the government’s promotion of extremist ideals continue to determine the nation’s spiritual climate.
