Prayer Request for Mauritania
July 31, 2012
If you're one of the thousands of people who have downloaded our mobile phone apps on either Android or Apple platforms, then you would have read the following for today's prayer request.
Mauritania: Pray for Pastor "Anwar" and other Christians who are threatened by Muslim extremists.
If you're not familar with the little country of Mauritania, let me share with you that is is a restricted nation and the population is about 99.8% Muslim. The Christian population is approximately 0.3%.
This small country is also one of the world's poorest countries and also one of the most restricted, as you can see from the tiny population of Christians who reside there. There is no freedom of religion in Mauritania and the people live under Sharia law.
The saddest part of this little country is that still, after all of these years, that 14 of the 19 people groups have never heard the gospel.
Please join me in praying for Mauritania and her people. Pray for the Christians who are living there, and also pray that the gospel would reach all of the unsaved Muslims who reside in this country.
