Algeria

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, we declare Your mighty rule over the country of Algeria and bless the new government with the Prime Minister Ayman Benabderrahmane and President Abdelmadjid Tebboune. Make the new cabinet made up of 34 members that includes four women to jointly serve as a good team. Energize the leaders and the Algerians to valiantly fight the CORONAVIRUS pandemic. Grant job opportunities for the Algerian unemployed youth and bring hope into their lives for a better tomorrow with real changes in the country. Help Algeria to overcome the economic disaster and help the leaders to deliver meaningful changes in the financial sectors. Arouse the Christian Believers to unite and strive for transformation in the country by declaring the saving power of Jesus Christ because they are from God and have overcome the evil one; because greater is He who is in them than he who is in the world (The Bible, 1 John 4:4).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Before the pandemic brought the world to a standstill, Algeria was swept up in a wave of peaceful protests – known as the Hirak, Arabic for “Movement” – which eventually forced President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to step down in April 2019 after 20 years in power. Abdelmadjid Tebboune promised to extend a hand to the Hirak movement to build a “new Algeria”. But with no sign of desperately needed jobs, protests became increasingly tense, with scores of activists arrested. Just as the stand-off seemed to be reaching a climax, CORONAVIRUS emptied the streets. Algerians have something in common with them- the urge to help others in difficult times.
