Tunisia's President Beji Caid Essebsi, the North African country's first democratically elected leader, has died at the age of 92. He took up office in 2014 and has been responsible for a number of social reforms including drafting a new democratic constitution guaranteeing fundamental rights such as freedom of speech. He also championed women's rights in Tunisia and made Tunisia the most socially advanced Islamic country in the region.

Pray for God to choose a new leader to lead Tunisia from hereon.
Pray for the interim government to honor the reforms brought-forth by the late President Essebsi (The Bible, Psalm 8:6).

In June, a seven-story building under construction by a Chinese construction company collapsed killing 28 people and injuring a further 26. Since that collapse, the construction quality and unregulated buildings built by Chinese companies has come under scrutiny. A 100-member commission was established to examine the construction industry.

Pray they will do their job efficiently and without corruption.
Pray for adequate construction and safety standards to be observed.
Pray for compensation to be paid to the families of those who died (The Bible, Matthew 11:28).
