In many Muslim majority nations, there is a mandatory closure of churches. In many of these countries, the church is in real danger. The government leaves the church with no options, forcing them to close.
It is happening in Pakistan and Algeria, for instance, where the church is a small minority. In Egypt, the churches are “asked” to close as a precaution against attacks from radical Muslims.
- Pray for the churches in Muslim-majority nations to have the freedom to meet; and that governments will protect Christians minorities.
- Pray for the Christians to stand firm, to not succumb to fear, and that they will find creative ways to meet.
