Day 6: East Africa
Series: 30 Days of Prayer for Muslims and Christians – 2016 Ramadan
Presented in American Sign Language, no voice interpretation.
From Sudan’s Red Sea coast to South Africa’s Cape of Good Hope, the nineteen nations are found along the coastline of East Africa. There are about 298 Muslim people groups, and out of about 357 million people, there are 78 million Muslims. Many of these nations are ruled by the sharia and Christians routinely face persecution from Muslim-majority populations. Under the threat of persecution and death, many Christians choose to stay in East Africa because they want to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. They feel obligated to enter mosques and preach about Isa al-Masih so that others might know Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord.
– Pray for the followers of Isa al-Masih in East Africa for wisdom and courage to remain faithful to Jesus in midst of their local communities.
– Pray for greater freedom as believers seek to freely teach, learn about and express their faith without fear.
– Some 80 million Muslims do not know Jesus Christ yet; pray that God will raise up more workers to adopt this region as their mission field.
