Current president, Alpha Condé, was the first freely elected president in Guinea’s history when he came to power in 2010. The constitution says presidents may serve for a maximum of two terms. Mr. Condé’s second term is now coming to an end, however he recently indicated he intends to stand for a third term and was telling his supporters to be ready to fight any opposition. Bless this nation in Jesus’ name with peace and stability. Pray that Mr. Conde will act righteously, and ask the Holy Spirit to bring conviction (The Bible, Isaiah 33:15-16).

Dhanin Chearavanont heads up the family owned business conglomerate, Charoen Pokphand Group Co. They are the world’s biggest producer of animal feed, largest providers of shrimp, and a top telecommunications firm in Thailand. They are the richest family in Thailand. They also spearhead the “Eastern Economic Corridor,” Thailand’s military regime’s plan to bring in Japanese and Chinese investment and technology giants. The plan is indeed bringing fast economic growth, but critics say the wealth is going to the rich, and not benefiting the locals in the region. Ask God to expose corruption at every level. Pray for righteousness and justice (The Bible, Proverbs 21:21).
