Prayer for Ivory Coast: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - May 3 (Day 124)

Today we continue prayers for Ivory Coast. Please review pages 284-288. We'll focus on points #7-14 today.

My prayer for today: Lord, we thank You for the work of the mission agencies from Africa within Ivory Coast, and pray for the success of these endeavors. We pray for congregations to understand the importance of sending and for the people's needs to be supplied. We pray for those who haven't heard the Gospel and for the wisdom to reach the underserved sectors with the Gospel. Provide ministry to the refugees. Lord, we pray for wisdom in the challenge of Islam. Help believers understand the importance of humility and love, of developing relationships with Muslims and allowing You to use them to heal the ethnic divide that often determines religious realities. Provide all that is needed in the way of literature and Bible translation. Thank You for Your work in creative media sources and we pray for more music and films to come that present Biblical truths in culturally relevant ways. We lift up Ivory Coast for Your glory, Jesus. Amen.
