Prayer for Mali: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - August 25

Today we pray for Mali again. Please review pages 564-567.

My prayer for today: Lord, we praise You and thank You for the stability and freedom in Mali. We thank You that it has resisted the pressure to become an Islamic state and we thank You that the church is really taking root within the culture. What a blessing to see the diversity of ministry, the holistic approach, and the partnerships. Lord, Mali needs Your touch in the economic needs that they have. What a challenge the government faces. We pray for the children with their low survival rate; we ask You to minister to them and raise up people with creative ideas to help Mali develop. We pray for Muslims in Mali to hear about Jesus and for the Christians to have wisdom and passion for outreach. We pray for the church to make a positive impact in many ways in the country. We pray against dependency and for You to unleash Your Spirit and bring creative resources into this country; use the church significantly in the development of Mali in such a way that it's written into the fabric of the nation's collective history. Praise You Father, for Mali. In Jesus' name, amen.
