Thousands of Families and children have been on the run for many decades to escape violence and death in Senegal. They wandered in the fields, and forests in very hot conditions. Despite a number of ceasefires over the past 40 years, the Senegalese army continues to clash with separatist rebels of the Movement of Democratic Forces of Casamance. People separated physically, culturally, and linguistically from the rest of Senegal, have historically suffered from a lack of attention from the capital. Pray for the Sovereign Lord, who has made the heavens and the earth by His great power and outstretched arm to direct the leaders to deal with the persisting problems and perils.
Pray for the young Senegalese to get proper employment, and take charge of their future.
Pray for them to become stronger in faith in God who can fulfill the promises to them (The Bible, Luke 1:45).
The country of Jordan is facing severe water scarcity because of climate change. It is rated as the second most water-scarce country in the world. Jordan is largely a desert land and the population increased rapidly following the Syrian civil war. There is also the influx of refugees to the country. The rainfall is inconsistent in the country which leads to temperatures soaring. The current news that is heating up in the kingdom is that Jordan’s Prince Hamzah bin Hussein renounces the title of prince. He accused the country’s leaders of corruption, incompetence, and harassment and was put under house arrest for a year. Pray that God releases His glorious power over the country of Jordan and grants seasonal rain to the parched land to alleviate the sufferings of the vulnerable mass. Pray for the Christian Believers to be reminded that God is always powerfully at work on their behalf. Pray for them to see His power and strength and bring peace to their lives (The Bible, Exodus 14:14).
A Human Rights Watch report released last month says that the government in the Maldives has made progress in media freedoms but has not sufficiently addressed broader issues. These include addressing the threat that religious extremist groups make against people with differing values or religions, and the ways that the justice system remains vulnerable to the influence of powerful interest groups. Pray that the government will continue to take steps towards greater freedoms. Declare that nothing is impossible for our God who raised Jesus from the dead by His power (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 6:14).
Horrific crime events and heart-breaking accidents are continuously occurring in Nigeria. Gunmen on motorbikes shot sporadically into homes and businesses during the rampage in central Plateau state.

26 people have died in a wooden boat mishap on the Shagari River near the Gidan-Magana village of the Shagari local government area of the state. Pray for people to escape death traps and for the murderous gangs to be wiped out of the state. Pray for those who have lost their loved ones and belongings in a moment. Pray for God’s extreme power to control this country and its leaders. Pray for the sufferers to know that God is their shelter and a refuge in their terrible trials (The Bible, Psalm 9:9-10).
