OVERVIEW OF COMOROS

ComorosThe rise of radical Islamic sympathies among the population at large, government officials, religious leaders and Muslim youth groups in particular causes anxiety among Christians. Christians are facing severe pressure due to their faith. According to an Open Doors expert, Islam and only Islam is effectively endorsed at the national level and converts to Christianity are persecuted severely in their private lives. Foreigners are allowed to practice their Christian religion but must not proselytize at the threat of being deported. There seems to be less space for Christian church life to develop and flourish.

PRAYER POINTS

  • That the rise in radical Islam in Comoros will decrease and Christians will be able to worship without facing severe pressure
  • That the harassed Christians will be encouraged and not give up their faith
  • For believers to have access to Bibles and religious literature without repercussions
