Pray for Christians in Zanzibar

[415] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Christians in Zanzibar.

The government of the semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar is actively working to expel Christians, according to VOM workers who recently visited the area. All schools, even private Christian schools, are now required to teach Arabic and Islam; the construction of new churches is prohibited; and government authorities allow and even encourage Muslim citizens to intentionally drive out Christians. In 2013, 24 churches on the island were burned down, and crimes against Christians are almost never investigated or prosecuted. In addition, pastors have reported receiving poor medical treatment at hospitals, becoming even sicker than when admitted, so Christians don’t trust local hospitals. Thankfully, Christian leaders on the island remain committed to maintaining a Christian presence in the predominantly Muslim area. “I can’t orphan my church,” one pastor told VOM workers. Praise God for their strong commitment to shepherding their flock, and pray for the perseverance of all Christians in Zanzibar.
