PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Bless the endeavors of Solidarte Feminine a local organization in Djibouti that provides resources to women in need in Djibouti as well as those directly or indirectly affected by HIV. Cause their mission for Women, Peace and Security to empower the women at risk with the teachings on first aid and English. Empower the Churches to positively respond to the crying needs of those affected with HIV in the communities providing medical care and spiritual nourishment. Make them exercise their spiritual authority to combat the disease and ensure proper living ethics among people. Help them to extend a loving care to children, the innocent victims of the disease. Make the training beneficial to the ladies who work in the hospitals dealing with HIV infected. Bless the people of Djibouti as they celebrate the 44th anniversary of your nation’s independence with Your loving mercy and goodness in the land. Raise the Christian Believers that together they will be like warriors in battle trampling their enemy into the mud of the streets. They will fight because the LORD is with them, and they will put the enemy’s horsemen to shame (The Bible, Zechariah 10:5).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Djibouti has seen a rapid spike in CORONAVIRUS cases with the Horn of Africa nation now recording the highest prevalence on the continent as the population largely ignores measures imposed by authorities. The jump in cases is largely because of mass testing. Djibouti, with a population of about one million, has conducted more than 10,000 tests – a similar number to neighboring Ethiopia, which has more than 100 million people.
