Pray for Persecuted Church: Mauritania

[The Voice of the Martyrs prayer calendar] Mauritania is one of the world’s poorest countries and one of the most restricted. Freedom of religion is non-existent, and Islam has dominated for more than 1,000 years. Social and family matters are judged under Shariah, or Islamic law. A bloodless coup in August 2008 led to democratic elections and a new president in 2009. Fourteen of the 19 people groups in Mauritania are unreached by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Restricted Nation
Muslim 99.8%, Christian 0.2%
Head of State
Gen. Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz

The Green flag is Mauritania
The government prohibits distribution of non-Islamic religious materials and the evangelism of Muslims. It is illegal for citizens to enter non-Muslim households, and anyone who confesses Christ faces the death penalty. “Shadrach,” a The Voice of Martyrs (VOM) worker in Mauritania, and several others were attached and beaten in July 2011 by an Islamic group led by a Muslim leader.

Pray: Pray for revival in underground churches and for strong Christian leadership.
