Join us in praying for Africa

Prayer is a great privilege that we have been given as God's children. We can reach God's heart and petition Him with our desires and requests. It is the desire of CfaN and hopefully yourself to see Africa saved, washed in the blood of the lamb, and redeemed as a continent. This can only be achieved through prayer and obedience (action).

Please use this monthly prayer guide to pray for different nations of Africa as we seek God's will and purpose for this great continent and its people.

Together we will see Africa saved!

Yours in Christ,

Evangelists Daniel Kolenda & Reinhard Bonnke

Points for prayer

  • Boko Haram, a Muslim Islamist movement, implements Sharia law in many northern states and persecutes Christians in the north. Pray that the organisation would be dismantled and that the leaders would turn to Christ.
  • Pray for continued growth in the church in Nigeria and for indigenous evangelists who will evangelise their northern Muslim neighbours.
  • Pray for the leadership of the country, for wisdom to meet the challenges of governance and to ensure that all citizens are treated fairly regardless of their religion.
  • Pray that the government would do more to deal with corruption and the stealing of the nation's wealth. Pray that the wealth would be distibuted fairly and help to build a stable country economically, politcally and socially.
