Lord, strongly urge the Churches in Burkina Faso and the Christian Believers to campaign in prayer against the gruesome atrocities happening in the country. Empower them with the mighty Holy Spirit to wage a spiritual war against the demonic forces operating behind this bloody carnage. Deliver the children indoctrinated by the terrorists who threaten them and misuse them. Make the government take all the precautions to safeguard the citizens. Make the U.N. and UNICEF to strongly condemn the recruitment of children and adolescents by non-state armed groups as this is a grave violation of their fundamental rights of children. Command the government to take tougher measures to stop the growing bloodshed and to contain the worsening violence in the country. Make the persecuted declare: Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light (The Bible, Micah 7:8).

Record low voter turn-out for the recent presidential elections may indicate the lack of confidence the public felt that their vote would make any difference in the outcome. 3.5 million people also cast blank ballot sheets, part of a public boycott. Despite this, as expected, hardliner Ebrahim Raisi won the election and will take up office this month. We pray for this nation and its people and declare with holy faith that Jesus Christ is ruler over all. We pray especially for Christians in Iran today, that they may be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith (The Bible, 1 Peter 5:8-9).
