Release International Prayer Shields: Algeria and Indonesia


Algeria



Pray for a change in Algerian law to end the deadlock over church licensing. Churches are currently required to have a licence for ‘non-Muslim worship’ – yet the authorities refuse to issue them.


Algeria



Please pray for a Protestant congregation in Oran, Algeria: a court ordered their church to close in January. Pray that the church’s appeal against the ruling will be successful.


Algeria



Between November 2017 and the end of January 2020, 12 churches in Algeria had been forcibly closed as part of a crackdown on Protestant congregations. Pray they will be allowed to reopen soon.


Indonesia



Pray for wisdom for leaders of a Baptist church near Semarang city, Java, Indonesia, which has been closed and denied permission for building works even though it has had planning permission for years.


Indonesia



Pray for the congregations of evangelical churches in Yogyakarta and in Sumatra that have been closed recently, following complaints by Muslim neighbours in Indonesia.


Indonesia



Pray that an increasing number of Christians in Indonesia will have a heart for sharing the gospel in their communities.


Indonesia



Radical Islamist groups in Indonesia continue to pose a threat to churches in more conservative areas such as Aceh. Pray for wisdom and courage for Christians in such places.
