Guinea

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, bless the Local Health Systems Strengthening Activity in Guinea to improve the health status of communities across the country by increasing utilization of quality of essential health services and strengthening local management and operational capacities. Make the people of Guinea be thankful to God as The Ebola outbreak that erupted there in early 2021 was declared over on 19 June, just four months after the first cases were confirmed in a rural community in the south of the country. As Guinea is keeping two of its borders closed to heightened political isolationism, make the leaders realize that prolonged border closure will exacerbate its economic crisis. Instigate the Christian believers to proclaim that You will protect them from the deadly sword. Deliver them; rescue them from the hands of their enemies whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. Then their sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and their daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace (The Bible, Psalm 144:11-12).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The peaceful country of Guinea hosts people who live on less than $1 a day, despite the country’s wealthy resources. Ethnic tensions increased with the country divided along equal-sized tribal lines. In recent years there have been significant riots around bauxite mines in the north protesting the destruction of the environment and loss of traditional farmland the mines have brought.
