Guinea

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Praise Report

Praise God that in spite of the sudden political change, the country of Guinea is relatively calm and peaceful. Pray that the transition government will respect God, and the people, and protect this peace going into its future (The Bible, Leviticus 19:32).

Prayer Requests

We declare God’s mighty anointing upon the evangelical Christian Believers numbering less than one percent and the Churches to wake up to address their needs and serve the country at large in the present scenario (The Bible, Nehemiah 4:22).

Pray that the military government will have the wisdom to make wise decisions that protect the people from their hardships and also from the economic crisis that will follow (The Bible, Acts 7:10).

Call to Salvation

Pray that the sudden political change stirs Churches to actions of love and service in the community, and stirs the hearts of those who don’t know God to seek after the Lord Jesus Christ (The Bible, 1 Chronicles 16:10).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Guinea, relatively a peaceful country, is jolted by the coups. Incumbent Mamady Doumbouya is the president since 1 October 2021. Incumbent Bernard Gomou is the prime minister since 17 July 2022. Experiments with socialism and a two-year rule by a junta have taken their toll on prospects for development. The 2010 election ushered in a decade of civilian rule but led to violent ethnic clashes as well. In addition, hundreds of thousands of refugees from Liberia and Sierra Leone have strained Guinea’s struggling economy. The instability has generated suspicion and ethnic tension – as well as accusations between neighbors of attempts at destabilization and border attacks. Muslim converts to Christianity fear family reactions and harassment by the extremists.
