Pray for Comoros

Ask God to give Christian foreigners within the country the boldness that they need to proclaim Christ, regardless of the consequences.

Pray that those who have left the country will come in contact with the Gospel, respond to Christ, and then bring the salvation message back home to their friends and families.

Ask God to minister to the indigenous Christians scattered throughout the country, bringing them encouragement, strength and access to the Word of God.
