Prayers for Persecuted Church:


What does persecution look like in Burkina Faso?

Burkina Faso is located in a region where Islamist groups have a huge and growing influence. The central government is very weak, particular in the east of the country where Islamic law is informally implemented by groups who’ve gained control over these areas. Jihadist violence has been rapidly increasing in recent years, and extremists have exploited the government’s weakness during the COVID-19 crisis to gain control of the country’s infrastructure. This has led to hundreds of church closures—while many Christians are among those who’ve fled their homes because of extremist attacks. There are over 1 million internally displaced people in Burkina Faso, many of whom are Christians. Believers who’ve converted from Islam face the most persecution. Family and community members often reject them and try to force them to renounce their Christian faith. Many are afraid to express their faith in public because of such threats.

Meet “Salamata”

“They told us we deserved what happened to us because the jihadists told us to stop making noise.”

Salamata is a teenager—her church was looted and burned down by jihadists, who then killed all the men. She attended Open Doors trauma care.


PRAY for Burkina Faso

· Pray for wisdom for the government and its international partners as it seeks to bring an end to Burkina Faso’s insecurity.

· Pray that the Lord will be at work in the lives of traumatized believers to bring healing and comfort.

· Ask God for protection over Open Doors partners as they travel to volatile regions, and for God’s blessing on plans and logistics.
