Muslims On The Riviera?
Hump Day - Day Of Prayer For The Muslim World Vol. 87
"... because I have many people in this city." Acts 18:10
Marseille is a beautiful city located on the French Riviera. How come it has a sizable Muslim population?
Marseille - Some Fast Facts
Marseille and Islam
- Marseille is the 2nd largest city in France and has the 3rd largest metropolitan area in all of France
- Over the years, due to tourism and immigration, Marseille has become a cosmopolitan melting pot of people
- Marseille has a population of 850,000
- 1/4 of the population of Marseille is Muslim
- By far, the largest groups of foreign residents in Marseille are from these Muslim majority nations - Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco
10/10 Prayer Initiative
- Praise God for the openness to the gospel shown recently by many Muslims in Marseille. Some have given their lives to Christ! (Philippians 1:9-11)
- Pray particularly for the nominal Muslims in Marseille. It's estimated that only 70,000 of the 225,000 Muslims in Marseille are actually practicing Islam. Pray their hearts would open up to Jesus.
- Pray for the salvation of Marseille's Muslim residents who have immigrated from Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco. Pray they would be discipled, trained and led by the Spirit to implement effective ways of getting the gospel into their native countries. (Algeria - 95% Islam; Tunisia - 99% Islam; Morocco - 99.6% Islam)
- Pray for the gospel laborers who are evangelizing on the streets of Marseille. We have friends doing so for the next few months (Acts 18:10)
Pray for a minimum of 10% of the Muslim world to come to Christ by the end of 2027. More laborers are needed. More partnerships are needed. More prayers are needed.
