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.

Albania

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Some definitions of the word contend include to grapple with, rumble, fight an adversary, strive, or contend as with a judge. Today we contend for Albania in our prayers. We cry out to the Lord in our prayers on behalf of this nation, saying it is time for the Church to rise up in unity and love, sharing the Gospel boldly. It is time for Albanians to have open hearts and minds, receptive to hear the Good News that is being shared. Pray that God will rescue Albanians for spiritual darkness and bring them into the light of Christ. Pray for those who do not fear the Lord, that they may find themselves seeking to know the truth about Jesus Christ (The Bible, Psalm 55:17-19).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Albania was once the poorest nation in Europe, but poverty has been cut by more than half, and the economy continues to show positive signs of growth. Despite having a well-known mob, Albania made notable steps in combating drugs, weapons and human trafficking. Reconstruction after the devastating earthquake in November 2019 had only just started when the COVID-19 pandemic began. Under Communist rule, no religion was allowed. Now, Islam claims twice as many followers as Christianity. Christian Believers enjoy worshipping openly in a country that once restricted religious freedom.
