Prayer for Guinea-Bissau: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - June 11

Today we pray for Guinea-Bissau. We are privileged to have additional insights on how to pray from a Guinea-Bissau believer. Please read pages 387-389, then read Domingo's requests below.
Guinea-Bissau is a small country in West Africa, one and half million population. We speak Portuguese, and we have 26 ethnic groups. Guinea-Bissau has 50% animism, 45% Islam, and 5% Christian, so the big job we have is to change the animistic people and Muslims to Christianity. We pray that God does this. Another aspect is the political situation. A recent misunderstanding has led to an unstable situation among the military. Please pray God turns this to peace. We need prayer. Thank you, and have a good heart to pray for Guinea-Bissau.

My prayer for today: Lord, we do join with Domingo and ask You to give us Your heart to pray for Guinea-Bissau. We pray for You to bring truth and peace into the misunderstanding and bring about stability. Lord, we pray for You to transform the country through drawing many to Yourself away from the false beliefs of animism and Islam. Thank You for religious freedom - we pray that the church will use this freedom to share the Gospel with the entire country. Raise up righteous leaders to lead Guinea-Bissau out of poverty, unrest, and conflict and into peace and sufficiency. Thank You for sound church leaders; raise more and more leaders who are willing to go to poor and remote areas. Lord, work in Guinea-Bissau for Your glory!
