Algeria

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Since Russia launched a warring assault on Ukraine, Algeria cannot completely rely upon the Russian gas imports. Algeria and Italy governments have signed a preliminary deal on energy cooperation. After a meeting with President Abdelmadjid Tebboune of Algeria, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi announced the deal. Amnesty International is demanding the Algerian government drop charges against a group of activists as they are falsely accused. In fact, they reported exposing gruesome torture and attempted rape of a child in police custody. Pray for the mighty power of God who controls the entire universe to be seen in the lives of the Christian Believers in Algeria. Pray for the Algerians to see the Lord sitting on the throne, lofty and exalted, and open their hearts to Him. Pray for the suffering Algerians to derive their strength from God’s never-ending power and authority (The Bible, Psalm 108:5).

Chad

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

A massive airstrike by the Multinational Joint Task Force has killed a number of terrorists and a top ISIS commander in Chad.  The periodic killing of soldiers and policemen by IS is happening in the area. A sustained onslaught on the terrorists by Operation Desert Sanity and the MNJTF Lake Sanity on Boko Haram and IS strongholds killed over 100 terrorists, and their commanders were neutralized. About 300 Chadian rebel leaders went to the Qatari capital to sign a deal with representatives of Chad’s transitional government and pave the way for their country’s transition towards democracy. Pray that the political or military fierce fighting with each other for decades in Chad by the factions comes to an end. Pray that God reveals His mighty power over the country of Chad in turmoil with political and terrorist issues. Pray that the Chadian Christian Believers are endowed with the audacity to proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord(The Bible Luke 6:19).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Idriss Déby is the present president and Albert Pahimi Padacké is the current Prime Minister of Chad since 26 April 2021. The government is a unitary state with a Presidential system. Chad is landlocked in the middle of the continent and is bordered by six neighboring countries. Chad’s population is unevenly distributed in large part due to the variations in climate and physical geography throughout the country. With its freshwater, Lake Chad draws most of Chad’s over 17 million people to the southwest.
