Western Sahara

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord let Western Sahara considered a non-self-governing territory by the United Nations to be delivered completely from the control of the neighboring country and the state repression. Release the imprisoned activists subjected to cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment and torture. Bring a lasting solution to the most critical and the latest series of unprecedented developments in the Western Sahara conflict. Lord, embolden the Churches to protect the suffering people with the divine power to demolish strongholds.  Empower them to proclaim Your mighty name. Let them courageously wage a war against every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ ( The Bible, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Western Sahara has been occupied throughout its history. Once under Spanish rule, the land was later divided between Morocco and Mauritania. When Mauritania removed its claim, Morocco advanced.  The Polisario Front contested Morocco’s occupation, which led to decades of guerrilla warfare, ending with a 1991 cease-fire. The promised referendum, in which Western Sahara would be given a choice between independence and integration into Morocco, has yet to be offered.
