Most of the inhabitants of the island are Comorians. The Comorians are a blend of settlers from many areas: Iranian traders, mainland Africans, Arabs and Malagasy. Comorian communities can also be found in other parts of the Comoros chain as well as in Madagascar.

Father, I thank You that You love every person in the world and You are not willing that even one should perish. So I want to share in Your heart to see every person come home by declaring Your unconditional love for Mayotte today.
Father, I ask that Your Kingdom would come and Your will would be done in Mayotte and I pray that every person who lives there, would encounter a fresh revelation of Your amazing love for them in Christ today.
In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
