Mauritania

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The Mauritanian government is trying to speed up its COVID-19 vaccination drive. This country needs economic growth and humanitarian aid to help those suffering from acute poverty. We declare God’s governance and peace over Mauritania and the lives of the Mauritanian people. We pray for God to bring honor and glory through the Christian Believers in Mauritania. We also pray for Mauritanians to draw closer to God as they realize that Christ came to save sinners, and He is Emmanuel, God with us. (The Bible, 1 Timothy 1:15-17).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY
