Algeria – Please pray for Pastor Youssef

Pastor Youssef is the vice president of the Église Protestante d’Algérie (EPA), an association consisting of more than 45 Protestant churches. He also serves as a senior pastor who oversees a number of churches and Bible schools.

In March 2023, Pastor Youssef held a 3-day gathering with a few Christian families in a compound which had a church building that was sealed by the government in 2019.  Because of this gathering, Pastor Youssef was arrested and charged with holding an unauthorised religious assembly.

He was convicted and sentenced to two years’ imprisonment and a fine at a court hearing held in his absence. The accused pastor was not informed of the hearing and verdict until recently. He has since appealed against the verdict and another hearing has been scheduled on 19th November.

Pray for wisdom, guidance and direction for Pastor Youssef and his legal advisers as they prepare for the upcoming hearing. Pray that the court will rule in favour of Pastor Youssef. Pray that the Name of the Lord will be glorified in all situations.
