After 50 years of authoritarian rule with a communist influence, the 2010 elections ushered in a new, more democratic rule, when Alpha Condé was elected. However, since Mr. Condé was elected for his second term in 2015, the maximum number of terms the constitution allows for, he has been working towards making changes that would allow him to run for a third term. There remains one year before the next elections take place.

Pray that God will make a way for a peaceful and successful transition to a new president and government.
Pray that Mr. Condé will not try to hold onto power (The Bible, 1 Timothy 6:9).

The death of a 25-year-old model, presenter and party entertainer in September caused nation-wide scrutiny on the service and entertainment industry. Women have reported widespread abuse, sexual harassment and being coerced into drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. Though these women are not sex-workers, the nation’s general tolerance of sex-tourism results in a skewed impression of the place and roles of women.

Pray that this nation will repent of its wicked ways.
Ask God to bring healing to the place of women in this society.
Pray that the Church will teach strong, Biblical values related to women (The Bible, John 8:1-11).
