In Jonah 4:11a God said, "And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh...?” God was troubled about the evil city of Nineveh and went to great lengths to have His Word brought to it. In the same way, we should be concerned with the cities and countries in our world. While we may not be able to physical do something to help all the people around the world, we can certainly pray for them. I would like to provide a place where we can learn more about our world and how we can be praying for the different countries. Each week I will be posting a new country that we can pray for. I will include information about the country along with praises/prayer requests.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
The needs may not be ours, but they are the needs of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and the needs of fellow humans.
If you have a country you would like mentioned, send me a pm. I will be getting information from websites such as operationworld.org and persecution.com. Also, feel free to post any info or more prayer/praises requests if you know any.
Religions: Muslim 86.7% of the population (+73,000,000), Christianity 12.8% (almost 11,000,000), Evangelicals 3.9% (+3,000,000)
59% of the peoples are unreached. Here is a link to a pdf containing a list of the groups who are unreached http://www.joshuaproject.net/assets/prayer-cards/en/prayercards-country-eg-en.pdf
Praise God as the distribution of the Bible has increased in the last 10 years and Christian literature is being widely distributed. Pray for the groups of people who still need the Scriptures translated into their language.
Tension between the Muslims and Christians has continued to increase and there is political unrest in Egypt. People are being killed in protests and riots. Church buildings are being burned and Christian business owners are being targeted. Pray for the violence in the streets to end and for peace between the Muslims and the Christians. Remember to pray for the persecuted Christians in Egypt.
