Morocco is a beautiful North African country that attracts over 10 million tourists annually. Well-known tourist spots include the Marrakesh market, the Badi Palace, and the waterfront fort. A former French colony, Morocco annexed neighboring Western Sahara to gain access to their vast mineral wealth. Although the United States and Israel recognized Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara, the rest of the international community does not recognize this authority. Today, Morocco is a middle-income country and one of the foremost economies in Africa. Recovery from COVID-19 is slow in the tourism sector. More tourists are becoming victims of scams and other hostile behavior from local businesses. Like most Islamic countries, Morocco does not allow conversions from Islam to any other religious belief. In the past year, there was an increase in violent attacks on home churches and against individuals. Persecution levels are high, especially in extremist stronghold areas. On September 8, 2023, an earthquake measuring 6.8 claimed over five thousand lives. More than 250,000 people have faced a humanitarian crisis in Morocco since this seismic disaster.
Albania, we bless you today, in Jesus’ Name, with the joy of the Lord, who is your strength. May the joy of the Lord set people free from discontent and uncertainty concerning the future.
Bless the government with wisdom from above to lead their nation into a new future, free from corruption and increased educational and job opportunities for a bright future.
Bless church leadership with wisdom to help their congregations know the will of the Father concerning their nation and the role of the Church to lead.
God, we pray for Albania to be filled with the Holy Spirit, the presence of God in our lives today. We pray that You will lead and direct with clarity and vision (The Bible, Habakkuk 2:2).
Albania is a beautiful country with pristine beaches and medieval-era castles. Albania is no longer under communist rule. A NATO member with an future EU membership, Albania looked like another success story. However, corruption and downward-spiraling criminal activity transformed the country into one of the poorest in Europe. Albania’s main problem today is gangs operating in human trafficking, and drug smuggling rings in addition to the Albanian mob. Moving tons of cocaine into Europe, Albania is fast becoming known as “The Columbia of Europe.” Unemployed youth find it easy to be employed by the criminal enterprise. Cocaine addiction is also on the rise in Albania. Although a Muslim majority, Albania allows freedom of religion. The persecution of Christian Believers happened in Albania to those who converted from Islam. The congregations of traditional denominations are largely nominal in practicing their faith.
