There is violence and increasing hardship in the neighboring country of Sudan. Millions of the displaced people from there, including children and women, seek refuge in Chad. Chadian leaders are struggling to meet their humanitarian needs. Chad’s President Mahamat Idriss Déby said that immediate assistance is required from the international community to help refugees and host communities that need protection and humanitarian aid, including food, shelter, water, and sanitation. Chad is one of the world’s poorest countries. Pray for impoverished Chadians to accept, receive, and protect refugees and the displaced persons who come to their country. Pray for protecting Christian Believers from deteriorating health situations caused by continuous conflicts (The Bible, Job 5:21).
The political, institutional, and constitutional crisis in Niger has worsened since the takeover by the military. Algeria offered mediation to stop the escalation of the situation. However, the Government of Algeria decided to postpone the initiative. The preparatory meetings scheduled to happen are on hold. The Algerian Government hesitates because the Nigerian authorities are reluctant to hold talks. The military regime is governing Niger after overthrowing the elected President, Mohamed Bazoum, in a coup attempt. Pray for the Algerian Government to pursue proper measures to help re-establish constitutional order in Niger. Pray for the Churches to overcome opposition and threats (The Bible, Judges 21:13).
