Christians Struggle Amid Government Crackdown on Churches

[216] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Algerian Christians.

In 2019, the Algerian government permanently closed many churches, and several others that closed temporarily during the pandemic have not been allowed to re-open. “Many believers have gone for months or even years without gathering with their brothers and sisters in Christ,” a front-line worker said. While Christians in Algeria are receiving biblical training via the internet and Arabic Christian satellite TV channels, relying on the internet and other media sources can leave them vulnerable to false teaching and manipulation. One such heretical cult is targeting believers in Algeria, the front-line worker said. He requested prayer that Christians in Algeria would hold fast to “the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.”
