Prayer for Congo-DRC: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - April 28 (Day 119)

Please review pages 268-275. As you can see there is much to pray for about this country. The Lord will highlight any special emphasis for your own prayer time. Below is the prayer He put on my heart.

My prayer for today: Lord, I find the realities of Congo-DRC to be overwhelming. To think of a land only a few years removed from being a failed state; of an infrastructure so non-existent that only the presence of the churches can maintain things basic to society's existence; of the level of destruction they have faced. And yet the response is equally amazing: phenomenal growth in the church, and an incredible response by the church to have a significant social impact. Thank You, Lord, for the church in Congo-DRC. Bless their efforts and draw many to You through their loving service. What an example for us. Lord, we pray against the spiritual forces that would love to completely destroy Congo-DRC. We pray for the children that have been victims far too often. Deliver them, Lord, and deliver this land. Send Your mighty angels to fight against these demons. Continue to strengthen the church for the battle. Give them a solid foundation in Your Word and wisdom and discernment as they move forward. Lord, raise up a new generation of leaders ready to take up the challenge of being the church as Congo-DRC continues to rebuild its government. We pray for godly leaders and wisdom from above as they move forward. In Jesus' name, amen.
