Series: 30 Days of Prayer for Muslims and Christians – 2016 Ramadan
Presented in American Sign Language, no voice interpretation.
Mauritania, a country about three times as big as Germany and made up mainly of desert. Many people groups such as Arabs, Berbers and African people are living in this area. In 1920, Mauritania became a French republic and gained independence from France in 1960 as an Islamic country. Nowadays, the majority of the population are adherents of Islam and observe Islamic law more carefully than before. Partially because of social issues related to poverty, corruption, slavery, injustice, drought, etc., and also because of the Islamic jihad, this seems to be the only solution. Many do practice nomadic lifestyle.
The population of Mauritania is almost 100% Sunni Muslim and there are only a few Christians.
– Pray that this former normadic people will find their way to Jesus.
– Pray for those believers whom God has called to demonstrate His love among the people of Mauritania
– Pray that new believers will grow strong in their faith and in courage to share it
