Western Sahara

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Prince of Peace, bless Western Sahara with a peaceful settlement with Morocco. Let them shun the idea that war is the only solution.

Loving God, bless the people suffering from the fighting with constructive ways of making a peaceful living.

Bless those facing hardships without freedom of expression and other human rights by the repressive government.

Lord, we lift the oppressed and the socially suppressed people of Western Sahara. May they have the chance to hear the good news of Jesus Christ and experience salvation through Him. (The Bible, Proverbs 11:25).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Western Sahara is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. It has been a disputed territory since 1975. Morocco controls 80% of the land, while the remaining 20% is controlled by the Polisario, an independence movement established in 1973, and the government of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. Presently, camps run by the Cuban-backed Polisario Front exist in southern Algeria, where thousands of indigenous Sahrawi people are sequestered and treated inhumanely. Public beatings are common and young children are taken from their families and sent to Cuba for re-education.
