Senegal

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, rule over and control Senegal’s new counterterrorism laws originally made to strengthening the fight against terrorism, maritime piracy, and transnational organized crime that could be used to punish political speech and peaceful protest. Command the government and parliament to amend the laws before they are enacted and ensure that they meet international human rights standards. Enable the authorities to curtail the growing influence of Islamist armed groups in the Sahel region and the threat. Bless the efforts of The Institute Pasteur in Senegal’s capital Dakar planning to construct a new plant in Senegal to manufacture COVID-19 vaccines and produce 25 million doses per month soon. Make the government to alleviate the fear of civil society activists, youth groups, and others in Senegal about the new counterterrorism laws that could have a serious impact on civil liberties and be used to further shrink democratic space in the country. Give confidence to the Christian Believers because the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen them and protect them from all evils (The Bible, 2 Thessalonians 3:3).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

As a model of democratic success, Senegal has remained relatively peaceful and enjoyed economic stability, and freedom of press for years. Agriculture and tourism are the country’s main sources of revenue. Tightened security laws have affected freedoms as the nation has concern about encroaching militant Islam in the region. Senegal is a Muslim-dominated multi-party democracy, but remains accepting of other religions. Christian Believers remain free to worship openly and rarely face persecution.

Jordan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, establish the new ties between Jordan and Israel for improving relations for the benefit of the people. Jordan reached an agreement to purchase an additional 50 million cubic meters of water from Israel and to increase its exports to the occupied West Bank from $160 million a year to around $700 million. Direct both the countries to iron out the differences and rifts to have a renewed diplomatic tie to avoid confrontations and to ease all Israeli-Palestinian conflicts. Make the strategic partnership between the United States and Jordan yield positive results as U.S. President Joe Biden will host King Abdullah of Jordan at the White House on July 19. Inspire the Christian Believers in Jordan to seek the Lord for His miraculous intervention for peace and stability in the region. Bring them into realization that everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God (The Bible, 1 John 5:4-5).

Maldives

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Pray for the very small and underground Christian community that they may be on their guard. May they have great wisdom and may they learn to hear the guiding voice of the Holy Spirit very clearly. Pray that they will stand firm in the faith despite being such an overwhelming minority. Pray that they will be courageous to share their faith quietly and carefully with others around them. May the Lord lead seekers to the Christian Believers. Pray that they will be strong. Pray also for the government, that their hearts will soften and that greater religious freedom will come into this nation (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 16:13).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The Maldives is Asia’s smallest country by area and population known for its lucrative tourism industry. It is an extremely closed country, boasting 100 percent Islam, and heavily repressing any Christian influence. Only a handful of secret Believers live in the Maldives, believed “fertile ground for recruitment” to radical Islam. Dozens of Maldivians left have joined IS. The new government has begun reforms, but has struggled to see any real effective change take place. COVID-19 had a significant impact on the tourism industry in the first half of 2020, but looks set to recover.

Nigeria

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, Command the kidnappers of the 150 students in northern Nigeria’s Kaduna state to immediately release the innocent mass starving without food. Empower the unstable and feeble government with Your might to ensure safety of their citizens and children. Bring to end of this kind of continuous raids and attacks as this has happened for the tenth of such attack and mass kidnapping of children since December 2020. Expose the Boko Haram bandits terrorizing civilians, destabilizing the region and empowering jihadists, and make the government eradicate them completely. Strengthen the Churches to wage a war against the latest alarming trend of waves of mass kidnappings of students, endangering millions of children’s futures. Lord, give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked (The Bible, Psalm 82:3-4).
