  1. Forty years of almost constant war (1962-2002) devastated Angola. Pray God for peace to them, and pray also that Church can lead the way to reconciliation as the country works to rebuild.

  2. Pray for forgiveness and love in action.

  3. Pray for Christian unity, holy living, and biblical faith.

  4. Pray for primary and secondary schools to be rebuilt, staffed, and full.

  5. Pray for ministries such as World Vision International, Samaritan’s Purse, and others, as they focus on primary health care, education, vocational training, and disease prevention.
