Pray for Our World: Morocco

Ancient Moroccan tanneries

Morocco is in the northwest corner of Africa.  Sunni Islam is the state religion, and the existence of Christians and Jews are tolerated but not accepted (prejudiced).  Arab armies invaded Morocco in the seventh century and Islam took over at that time.  The once-strong North African Church was erased.  Today, Christians are still persecuted and expelled from the country.  There are less than one percent Christians and Jews, and even less than that are Evangelical (about .01%).  The internet is beginning to change their access to other worldviews, as significant numbers search for the gospel online, and the Jesus film is also distributed in Arabic.
