Praying for Equatorial Guinea: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - May 15 (Day 136)

As its name suggests, Equatorial Guinea is on the equator. An African country, it has the dubious distinction of having one of the worst human rights histories in Africa. Thankfully progress has been made. Let's learn about and pray for this country today. Please read pages 320-322.

My prayer for today: Lord, we lift up this precious country to You today. Thank You for beginning to stem the tide of human rights abuse, and for the growing religious freedom. We pray for laborers to the harvest who sense a call to walk through the door you are throwing open in EG. Lord, we pray for revival within the Catholic church. Open their eyes to the idolatry of animism and the need to completely reject those old ways. We pray for the newer groups that are working in EG to be pure, fervant, and doctrinally sound. We pray for missionaries to be humble and recognize ways they can come alongside those who are practicing Biblical faith. We ask for Your word in all the languages of EG and that Your word will completely transform the church and society. In Jesus' name, amen.
