We pray today for the believers in Djibouti. Christianity has been a part of the nation for many years, yet the influence of neighbouring countries and family ties are generating much persecution for believers in Djibouti.
Of the population of 829,000, there are an estimated 50,000 believers. For more information check out Open Doors USA.
Father, we pray for Djibouti. Believers here are being refused jobs and opportunities, including community resources, we pray for a change in this situation. We ask that you change hearts of the people persecuting believers, soften their hearts to receive the truth of the love and sacrifice of your Son. Give the followers of Djibouti wisdom and strength to share your love with those around them and beyond. Provide, protect and prepare them for what is to come next. Amen
We pray today for the believers in China. The government is working hard to tighten controls on Christianity and the spread of this faith. One might assume that the size of China and the vast number of people is one positive hindrance to the enforcement of these new laws.
Of the population of 1.37 Billion, there are an estimated 85 million believers. For more information check out Open Doors USA.
Father, we pray for China. When we see the numbers, we think that there are a huge number of believers, but once we compare it to the total amount of the population we see that it is very similar to other countries on this list. We pray that God you will open the eyes of the Chinese people to your sovereignty. That you are the creator and that their views on the world have been misguided. Give wisdom and knowledge to the Chinese believers as they take the steps of faith to reach their communities. Holy Spirit guide your people, protect them from persecution, give them many opportunities to reach the lost. Amen
We pray today for the believers in Kuwait. The government is riddled with contradictions when it comes to religious freedom. This makes it hard on the Christian immigrants who live there.
Of the population of 3.4 million, there are an estimated 420,000 believers. For more information check out Open Doors USA.
Father, we pray for Kuwait. We pray for opportunities for believers to share their faith, give them wisdom and foresight on when it is safe to share. Help them to reach family, friends, co-workers and government officials. Put a burning passion in their hearts to reach those around them who are on the wrong path. We ask for leniency on those believers who are trying to register to work and are looking for permeant homes, give them peace that these decisions will come quickly. Protect your believers in Kuwait, give them a boldness that has not yet been seen in this area. Let your light be bright here in Kuwait. Amen
We pray today for the believers in Algeria. Those who convert to Christianity will expect to be put on house arrest and face domestic abuse to convince them they were wrong in their choice.
Of the population of 41 million, there are an estimated 38,000 believers. For more information check out Open Doors USA.
Father, we pray for Algeria. We see a country hurting and in need of a touch from you. The youth desperately need to see you for who you are and become bold in their faith. We pray for this boldness in all believers in Algeria. This 1 % of the population can grow into a mightily army of heart changers, give them strength and conviction to reach their family’s, friends, coworkers and officials. Work miracles in Algeria, grow your church one person at a time. Let the world see your power in what you are doing in Algeria. Amen
Today we pray for Malaysia. Here there is a clear ethnic superiority with the native people in the way they treat foreigner and migrant workers as well as those who don’t accept their religion of choice. They even have re-education camps for those who convert to Christianity, as to ‘bring them back’ to their faith.
For more information, Open Doors USA has some details. They estimate just under 3 million Christians in the population of 31 million people.
Please pray with me and add your prayers in the comments.
Father, we pray for Malaysia. We ask that you give the Malaysia people a wisdom and vision on what they need to do here on the ground. Guide them in being able to forgive those who persecuted them as to be an example of your love to their oppressors and those witnessing it. Turn these re-education camps into revival epicenters where thousands if not millions of people come to know you. Envelope Malaysia with your love and forgiveness, let if overflow onto the neighbouring Islands. Bless the Malaysian people. Amen
