Praise God for the millions of Christians in Indonesia and bless them today with a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit, and a desire to share the Good News with others.

Having Southeast Asia’s strongest economy, Indonesia is also one of the G20’s wealthiest. It is the world’s fourth most populous nation. It also has the largest concentration of Muslims, yet Indonesia has an astonishingly high level of Christian presence. More than ten percent of the population are Christians, over 28 million people, with church growth continuing to increase. While Christianity is not illegal, provincial laws can override it and Islamic law is sometimes used. Muslim extremists continue to spread anti-Christian messages in the public sector.

Benin

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Bless the people of Benin to detach themselves from evil practices and turn to God. This nation is the birthplace of voodoo and witchcraft. They opened the door to the devil, putting their people at risk.

We bless the people of Benin with repentance, that they will fall at the feet of God and ask for forgiveness for the gross sins of idolatry and voodoo.

Bless the nation with zealous Christian witnesses to reach out to the lost people with the Gospel. Bless those who are risking their lives to serve the Lord in villages where evil rituals are common.

Pray for the people of Benin to have uncommon opportunities in 2022 to know the truth of Jesus Christ and be saved from cults and occult practices (The Bible, Psalm 49:3).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Patrice Guillaume Athanase Talon is a Beninese politician and businessman who has been President of Benin since 6 April 2016.  An economist and investment banker turned politician, Lionel Zinsou was appointed Prime Minister of Benin in June 2015. Benin is best known for its peaceful democracy, one of the most stable in Africa. However, corruption remains a significant issue. The country, once hosting main ports crucial in the slave trade, still negotiates shady deals. Poverty increases each year. At the start of this year, the government made moves to effectively exile all political opposition. This resulted in massive public protests, with unrest continuing for some months.
