  • Pray for emphatic Biblical teaching in the churches that will, in turn, impact other spheres of society (i.e. poverty, witchcraft, radical Islam).

  • Pray for trained, mature Christian leaders who will be able to evangelize the unreached in a predominantly rural nation.

  • Pray for more effective Bible translation teams and initiatives.
