Pray for Churches Closed by Authorities

[227] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Closed Churches.

On Tuesday, Feb. 27, police closed two churches in Oran after informing them that they did not have state approval to operate. Since December, government officials have visited 25 of 45 churches affiliated with Algeria’s main protestant church. And on Nov. 9, 2017, a church that had trained and discipled more than 7,000 former Muslims since 1997 was forced to close its doors. Authorities claimed it had been illegally printing the Gospels and other publications for evangelism. Pray that these churches will find new places to meet and that believers throughout Algeria will support and strengthen one another. Pray that their faith will be a bright light in their predominantly Muslim nation.

  • Lord, fill these believer’s hearts with hope and with expectation. Remind them and the unbelievers around them that NOTHING can oppose Your word. Sealing church doors will come to nothing. Closing churches will be useless as heart after heart is opened to the joy that is Christ. Provide them with new places to meet and may they meet with joy.
