Increased violent attacks from Islamic militant groups, as well as rising violence along ethnic and religious divides, has resulted in mass internal displacement of over 270,000 people. When farmers flee, they are unable to plant the next season’s crops which will result in increased food scarcity in the future. Pray for heavenly wisdom for the government of Burkina Faso. The uncertainty in the nation is also resulting in increased church growth as people are responding to Jesus in the midst of their fear and crisis.

Pray for the Church to be effective in sharing the Gospel and discipling people deeply (The Bible, Hebrews 6:1-3).
