Guinea has faced many challenges since gaining independence from France in 1958. Marxist rule plundered Guinea of its economical resources for three decades. In 2010, after protests and the demise of an oppressive regime, Guineans conducted their first free and fair election but Guinea is still one of the poorest countries in West Africa. This year, we want to bless Guinea with economic breakthroughs. Pray that corrupt leaders, officials and business practices will be exposed and uprooted. Pray that a new generation of young entrepreneurs and leaders will find favor and grow in stature and wisdom to serve their nation (The Bible, Galatians 6:9).

In 2018 one of the most watched news stories was the rescue of the youth football team from the Tham Luang caves. A park ranger explained that the caves would get 10 to 20 visitors a day but now visitors number more than 6,000. There has long been a shrine to Nang Non, a mythical princess, next to the cave entrance, where people could make offerings to her spirit. Caves are traditionally viewed as places of great mystical power in Thailand and the seemingly miraculous rescue has enhanced her allure as a bestower of good fortune. Pray that many who visit the shrine will have an encounter with our Heavenly Father, the God of all power and blessing (The Bible, Joshua 4:24).
