Sentence Reduced for Convicted Christians

[159] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Believers in Algeria.

In December 2021, Algerian police raided a worship gathering and arrested 12 Christians. The believers spent 48 hours in jail before being charged with “unauthorized worship” and sentenced to a six-month suspended prison sentence and a $1,380 fine. The believers appealed in April 2022, and the fine was reduced by half. Praise God for the reduction in the Christians’ sentence, and pray that the believers can worship freely without oppression by Algerian authorities.

  • Jesus,
    Thank you for showing compassion to my siblings in Christ. Thank you for helping them. Father, we know this world is not our home and you told us we would have troubles in this life. Help us to be focused on our Heavenly home and seek to do good to our enemies. Whatever, wherever that may be. We love you. Thank you for loving us so much.
