Kyrgyzstan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

One definition of the word contend is likened to the intense effort of a wrestling match. Today we contend for breakthroughs for God’s Kingdom in Kyrgyzstan.  Too long has the Church remained small and harassed in this nation. Pray that God will empower the Church to preach with authority, evangelize with great effectiveness and minister with compassion and love. Pray that Christians will be inspired to share their faith widely, and that some of that seed will fall on good soil, reaching others who are seeking for truth, hope and purpose in their lives. Pray for the beginning of many Bible study groups in homes all across this nation (The Bible, Jude 1:3).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Kyrgyzstan remains the second poorest country in post-Soviet Central Asia. Unemployment, corruption, inflation, and religious and human-rights violations still plague people’s lives, as it did before the Tulip Revolution. In 2010 a parliamentary constitution with elaborate checks and balances was adopted, making Kyrgyzstan the only Central Asian country in which the president is limited to a single term. Most Kyrgyz are nominal Muslims, but a growing Islamic identity is concerning. A lack of growth in the Church has been observed.

Niger

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, make the people of Niger seek after Your goodness and grace to live a peaceful life and support President Mohamed Bazoum who took office, making it the first democratic transfer of power in the nation’s history. Bless the support by Germany for the North African country to help face the difficulties and challenges and make progress. Let Niger’s new emphasis on educating young girls and women to have better access to health care become a reality through partnering solidarity. Enable the Churches and the Christian Believers to arm them spiritually to face the major challenges of Niger. Empower them to pray and battle against the armed conflict in the region and the human traffickers and Islamist militias. Lord, make the international agencies to extend their support to Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world. Let the Nigerian Christian Believers arise and pray for the lives of their children, who faint from hunger at every street corner (The Bible, Lamentations 2:19).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Médecins Sans Frontières began supporting the national response to COVID-19 in Niamey, the epicentre of the new CORONAVIRUS pandemic in Niger. MSF teams that regularly work in several other parts of the country have also implemented a number of measures as the virus spread to other regions. In a context characterized by stigma and violence, there are many challenges to respond to the pandemic.
