As we pray for this nation struggling under the military leadership following the coup, we raise up a battle cry saying enough is enough. Violence and retaliation must stop. The nation is also experiencing rising COVID-19 cases and its health care system is unable to cope. Pray for the family of a Christian leader who died of COVID-19 recently, leaving behind his wife and three young children. There was no oxygen in the hospital where he was admitted. Pray for the ministry of many Christians are trying to give people hope during great trials. Pray for the Church’s endeavors to meet the need for food and basic provisions in poor communities (The Bible, Philippians 4:19).

Command an end to the diplomatic stand-off between Addis Ababa and downstream nations Egypt and Sudan as Ethiopia says the hydroelectric dam project is essential to its development, but Cairo and Khartoum fear it could restrict their citizens’ water access. Lord bring to a halt the military conflict between Ethiopia’s federal government and the ruling party in the Tigray region blown up into a full-scale crisis in the Horn of Africa. Save the hundreds of thousands in Tigray facing famine, and millions more are at risk and let the humanitarian aids reach the affected people and the millions of people displaced by the fighting. Embolden the Churches to wage a war against sexual violence against girls and women in the region and preserve their lives. Arouse in Christian Believers the strong desire to ask God for a permanent solution and think about what causes fights and quarrels among them? Don’t they come from their desires that battle within them. They desire but do not have, so they kill. They covet but they cannot get what they want, so they quarrel and fight. And do not have because they do not ask God (The Bible, James 4:1-2).
