North Africa is a region of Africa that is completely distinct from the rest of the continent. Much of the area is covered by a desert, pounded by heat, and almost wholly Muslim. Once a base of Christianity during the time of Augustine and the early church fathers, this area currently has very little gospel witness, and persecution of the existing church is severe.
Sojourn has three families serving on a team in Millennium City, North Africa*. They have been in North Africa for close to three years and are establishing a business in this large coastal city. Our Sojourn City Team is focused on a Muslim unreached people group for 25+ million people with just around 1000 Christian. The needs are great. Pray that our small team can make an impact for Christ in this city. Pray for our team and the national believers we work with, that they may have boldness to share, and that God will multiply disciples and plant churches.
*The name of this city has been changed for security reasons.
Prayer for Millennium City, North Africa
O God who does new things, who makes a way in the wilderness and a stream in the desert, we pray for the people in and around Millennium City. Cause your name to be remembered again, that the peoples of this nation may praise you forever and ever. Please open their eyes and turn them from dark to light, and from the power of Satan to the power of Christ, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in you. Look upon the searing threats of the enemy and grant that your servants may continue to speak with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal through the name of Jesus. Amen.
