prayer for Southern Mexico.

COUNTRY Mexico (Southern) MX
DESCRIPTION Category: Hostile
Major Religions: Catholic 70.2%, Evangelical 14.5%
Prevalent Ideology: Catholic Syncretism
Leader: President Enrique Peña Nieto

Mexico has the second largest economy in Latin America, but rural areas are often neglected.

Life for Christians
Rural Catholics in the states of Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero (among others) see evangelicals as a threat to their way of life. Local leaders also view them as a threat because they don’t participate in town rituals involving heavy drinking and worship of saints and other deities. Some villages post signs reading, “No Other Religions Allowed.” Evangelicals are often expelled from their communities, losing land, homes and crops. Pastors and Christian workers have been threatened with death.

VOM Work
VOM supports front-line workers who share the gospel and plant churches in these regions

Father God, we declare that you are Lord and you are Lord over these persecuted men and women and also over their persecutors. Lord Jesus, we thank you for their faith and the endurance you give them to keep on going. Jesus, we lift up those in Southern Mexico and we ask that they would have a deep sense of your presence Lord. We ask Lord that you would remind them that you have given them a spirit of courage, power, and love and you will never leave them nor forsake them, for you are with them. Jesus may they be bold in you and may you continue to open doors for them to share your gospel with others. May you bring others to know you through them and may their ministry in you grow in the name of Jesus. May young men and women be raised up as disciples in this area and may they go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus come and descend upon this place. Thank you Father God for being a faithful Lord to unfaithful people. In Your Name and for Your Glory, Amen.
