The Hindu right wing said of Prime Minister Modi’s re-election, “Modi is a tsunami that has brought awakening in the country. I believe there would be no elections in 2024 after this election is done."

Pray that Modi will not be able to consolidate his power as some might like in the coming years.
Pray that there will always be something to remove him from that position of absolute power.
Pray that God will raise up righteous leaders in this nation in the coming years.
Pray that in the midst of Hindu nationalism, many will be disenchanted, and seek after Jesus instead (The Bible, John 17:14-16).

Cheikh Ould Mohamed Ould Mkhaitir was sentenced to death in 2014 on charges of blasphemy. He was released on July 30, 2019 with the end of Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz's presidency in Mauritania.

Pray for more reforms to follow as the new Presidency of Mohamed Ould Ghazouani is inagurated (The Bible, Luke 18:27).
