Mauritania

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Almighty God, we confess that You are Omnipotent over the country of Mauritania. We declare to the Mauritanians that the LORD their God is the one who goes with them to fight for them against their enemies to give them victory. Lord strengthen the ties between Tunisia and Mauritania supporting each other in their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Instruct the officials to make proper use of the 80,000 COVID-19 vaccines sent by United Arab Emirates to bolster the country’s efforts in curbing the spread of the virus. While the country is fighting the pandemic and slavery added to poverty, charge the Churches to fight the works of the enemy and bring people into victorious living in Christ (The Bible, Deuteronomy 20:4).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The Islamic Republic of Mauritania lies on the Atlantic coast of North Africa. Slavery and institutionalized racism are still common here. Those who convert from Islam lose citizenship and may be subjected to the death penalty by law. As a result, the state is a major source of Christian persecution, and that persecution is increasing. The country is one of the poorest Arab nations with a range of social and political problems, including racism, slavery, illiteracy, child marriage and female genital mutilation.
