Chad

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

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).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Mahamat Idriss Déby is the present president and Incumbent Saleh Kebzabo is the current Prime Minister of Chad since 12 October 2022. The government is unitary state with Presidential system. Chad is landlocked in the middle of the continent and is bordered by six neighboring countries. Chad’s population is unevenly distributed in large part due to the variations in climate and physical geography throughout the country. With its fresh water, Lake Chad draws most of Chad’s over 17 million people to the southwest. The dry Saharan climate in the north is the least populated region of Chad. More than half of the population is Muslim, with one-third Christian, and the remainder follow indigenous religious beliefs or have no religion. Most northerners practice Islam, and most southerners practice Christianity or indigenous religions.
