Guinea-Bissau

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

It sounds defaming of a country for Guinea-Bissau to be known as Africa’s Narco-State and is prone to continuous coups. In the recent coup attack President Umaro Sissoco Embalo, Prime Minister Nuno Gomes Nabiam, and members of the cabinet have escaped death. The terrible multiplication of coups has weakened the government. The president condemned the attack saying that it will provoke political chaos, instability, and destruction of development expectations.  The political instability should not take the acute forms of armed conflict, violent regime change, or politically motivated assassination attempts. Pray for the omnipotent power of God to be transmitted over the Republic of Guinea-Bissau. Pray for the Lord to manifest His splendid and majestic works and His righteousness in the lives of the Christian Believers (The Bible, Psalm 111:3).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

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. Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s poorest countries, relying on revenues from raising a cashew crop to feed most families, and its economy depends greatly on foreign aid. 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.
