Description: 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.

Prayer Points:
• Numerous military coups along with corruption have impoverished the Comoros nation. Half of the population of the Comorian people live below the international poverty line (living on less than $1.25 a day). Pray for their deliverance from the curse of poverty through the gospel of Jesus Christ and for development ministries 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.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, your word says that the islands will rejoice in you. May this promise be activated over the Comorians through your Son Jesus.
Each year 9,000 Comorian die without Christ.
