In September an earthquake measuring 5.8 in magnitude hit the port city of Durres. 105 people were injured as a result of the earthquake and the 340 aftershocks. Pray that God would shake this nation out of complacency and that many would seek the Lord as a result of this earthquake.

Pray that Christians will respond by offering trauma counseling and welcome people into the safety of their church fellowships.
Pray that this will be a time of breakthrough for church growth in this nation (The Bible, Hosea 10:12).

Morocco’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Nasser Bourita, has renewed the country’s commitment to African causes. Bourita cited the “visible efforts” the North African has made in the past two years to promote “effective and coherent” intra-African initiatives. He was speaking at a panel on “The Independence between Peace, Security, and Development” during a side event of the ongoing UN General Assembly. He mentioned the long list of conflicts still affecting many African countries. “But if the prevailing picture in Africa is not particularly all roses in the current moment, we nonetheless have reasons for hope,” the Moroccan minister pointed out.

Pray that the leaders and people will turn to God for security and stability.
Pray that the decade long conflicts will be resolved keeping faith in God (The Bible, Isaiah 57:10).
