The Comorians are a genetic and cultural mix of Arab, African and
Austronesian settlers who began migrating to the Comorian islands in the 6th
century AD. Once a major trading hub in East Africa, the islands converted to Islam
in Midieval times through the influence of Arab traders.
• Numerous military coups along with corruption have impoverished the Comoros
nation. Half of the population of the Comorian people live below the
poverty line (living on less than $1.25 a day). Pray for their deliverance from
curse of poverty through the gospel of Jesus Christ and for development
to be established among them.
• Evangelism among the Comorian Muslims is forbidden, though God is using the quiet
witness of medical missionaries to bring some to faith. Pray for the protection of
these new believers and for opportunities to reach the influential classes of
Comorian society through medical outreach.
• Occult practices are widespread among the Comorians. Pray for spiritual awakening
that will bring freedom from the powers of darkness and for the spiritual
protection of God's people.
Heavenly Father, your word says that the islands will rejoice in you. May this
promise be activated over the Comorians through your Son Jesus.
