In the lead up to the presidential elections, a number of protests were held, a rare occurrence in a nation which bans them. Many of the protestors were young people, expressing dissatisfaction with the dictatorship, and a desire for greater freedom and change. The government’s tightly controlled election process has left young people feeling powerless and without a voice.

Pray that God will turn this dissatisfaction into a hunger for spiritual hope and meaning in life (The Bible, Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
