PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Praise Report

Praise God that the Christian Believers have gained respect from their humanitarian work during the civil unrest. There are an increasing number of missionaries to the nation from Latin America and Asia, Pray for God’s protection over this nation with regard to keeping the growth of radical Islam at bay (The Bible, Isaiah 54:17).

Prayer Requests

We declare God’s glorious manifestations over this nation as the Churches are growing at an annual rate of 6.2%. Pray for excellent discipleship programs that help new Christian Believers to grow deep in God’s Word (The Bible, John 15:8).

Empower the 22 percent of the population who profess to be Christians with the Holy Spirit. Pray that the Holy Spirit will revive and renew Churches to become vibrant groups filled with a joy and desire to reach out to the communities around them (The Bible, Matthew 9:35).

Call to Salvation

Lord, change the hardened hearts of those who don’t think they need You. Make them recognize that sin has a grip on their lives and they need to be set free and find salvation in Jesus Christ (The Bible, Ezekiel 18:30).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s poorest countries. It relies on revenues from raising a cashew crop to feed most families, and its economy depends greatly on foreign aid. Umaro Sissoco Embalo is the President of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau since 27 February 2020. Nuno Gomes Nabiam is the Prime Minister since 28 February 2020. Outside of the agricultural sector, the government struggles to pay its workers. There are suspicions that the country aids the Latin American cocaine trade as the narcotic reaches Europe. Freedom of religion exists in Guinea-Bissau; however, an animistic Islam dominates the greater culture, particularly in the north and east. Christianity sees greater success in the south and coastal regions. The country has the sixth highest mortality rate in the world. Illicit drug trafficking has grown almost unchecked, as the government has no coast guard, police have no cars available, and the navy has no boats for patrolling the North Atlantic shores.
