Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
President Idriss D?by of Chad came to power in a coup in 1990. The latest Chadian constitution will allow him potentially to continue as president until 2033. As a Muslim, he rules over a Muslim-majority population with a substantial Christian minority and some who follow African traditional religions. The Chadian army is considered the most effective in West Africa for dealing with Boko Haram, the jihadi militant group originating in Nigeria which is apparently seeking to eliminate Christians from the territory it controls. But in the Central African Republic, Chadian troops are regarded as favouring the Seleka Muslim militants. Pray to our almighty Lord God, who raises up and brings down leaders as He wills, that He may use President D?by for His purposes (Isaiah 45:13).
