Pray for Tunisia - facebook page

The Republic of Tunisia is on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa, between Algeria and Libya. Its population is roughly 11.5 million, the majority of whom are Arab and Sunni Muslim. Tunisia is one of the most secular states in the Arab world. Islam remains the state religion, but Tunisia prides itself on being a democracy. Events across the Arab world have shaken the beliefs of many Muslims, including those of the Tunisian people. However, It has also seen a rise in Islamic fundamentalism, which keeps rearing its ugly head with terrorist attacks. The flag of the Tunisian Republic is washed in red to represent the bloodshed by martyrs in the struggle against oppression, a struggle that continues today for Christians. It has long been considered a restricted nation, one that does not allow the spread of the Gospel. Christians face persecution from family and friends, and following Jesus risks their jobs, social stature, and pressure from authorities. Persecution has increased since the revolution, and several church leaders have left the nation due to threats. Of the 23 people groups in Tunisia, 14 have never heard the Good News.

Praise Report
Praise God for the underground church movement growing in the midst of increasing influence of the conservative Islamists and the extremist organizations such as IS operating in the area (The Bible, Acts 11:19).

Prayer Request
Pray for those who are being lured by groups such as IS. Pray that their eyes will be opened to the lies, deceit and false promises made by people who have evil intentions (The Bible, Psalm 140:2).
Pray for those who have returned from fighting in Syria. Pray that their experiences abroad will make them yearn for something new – a personal relationship with Jesus Christ ( The Bible, 1 Corinthians 1:9).

Call to Salvation
Pray for millions of tourists who visit Tunisia each year, including those from other Arab states to be influenced by the music festivals often featuring gospel choirs from abroad. Pray that sensitive Gospel sharing opportunities will happen between Christians who come as tourists and the Muslim tourists (The Bible, Isaiah 43:10).
