Lord, bless the Local Health Systems Strengthening Activity in Guinea to improve the health status of communities across the country by increasing utilization of quality of essential health services and strengthening local management and operational capacities. Make the people of Guinea be thankful to God as The Ebola outbreak that erupted there in early 2021 was declared over on 19 June, just four months after the first cases were confirmed in a rural community in the south of the country. As Guinea is keeping two of its borders closed to heightened political isolationism, make the leaders realize that prolonged border closure will exacerbate its economic crisis. Instigate the Christian believers to proclaim that You will protect them from the deadly sword. Deliver them; rescue them from the hands of their enemies whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. Then their sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and their daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace (The Bible, Psalm 144:11-12).

Thailand was planning to fully open its borders to international tourism soon. However, the deadly COVID-19 third wave makes these plans doubtful causing fear for the economic future. As we pray for many developing nations that are increasingly struggling as the pandemic goes on, we ask God to increase our holy faith, and raise up a battle cry for the poor and needy. As we pray, we are reminded about God’s victory given to Gideon. “The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars, they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” Let our prayers be as shouts to the Lord, declaring that satan’s plans will be brought to nothing in Jesus’ Name (The Bible, Judges 7:20).
