Challenges for Prayer

  1. Most people long for safety, stability, food, work, and for honesty from leaders. Corruption threatens to overturn the newfound peace. Pray for God to fulfil these longings, and for no further violence to come.

  2. Pray for God to bind the dark powers, and to break the influence of secret societies.

  3. Pray that Christians will live lives of faith, and will depend on Jesus alone for provision, protection, and power.

  4. Pray that Christian witness to Muslim peoples (Fula Jalon, Krio Fulani, Mandingo, Susu, others) will be clear and bold, and also sensitive and humble.
