Morocco

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord strengthen the diplomatic relations of Morocco and Israel after a 20-year lull amid a wave of normalization agreements between Jerusalem and Arab countries. Make the contribution of Morocco of 100 intensive care beds and a similar number of ventilators to help Tunisia tackle the surge in COVID-19 cases and improve the health care system suffering severe stress and depleting oxygen supplies. Lord, manifest miracles in the lives of the Moroccan Christian Believers and let them increase in their faith in God. Embolden them to ventilate their voice against the oppressed and the downtrodden suffering poverty and intimidation. Armor them with the all the spiritual weaponry to fight the enemy at the day of evil and stand their ground utterly defeating the evil one (The Bible, Ephesians 6:13).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The Kingdom of Morocco is the most westerly of the North African countries known as the Maghreb – the “Arab West”. Morocco is a primarily urban country. Currently nearly 60% of the population lives in a city.  The suppression of Christian activity is meant to forestall sectarian conflict desired by extremists in other African Muslim countries. There are just a few thousand Moroccan Christians in the country, but they often keep their faith secret, making it hard to know them. Moroccans are expected to be loyal to Islam, king and country. If a Muslim decides to follow Jesus, it is seen as a source of shame to their families and communities. Christians have been accused of being disloyal to the king.
