We praise you because you sent your Son Jesus. For he was slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.
We praise you because, many Muslim background believers in the West Africa are drawn to Christ through; the vibrancy of Christian communities , and the impact of Christians schools, orphanages and community development projects. We thank you for these Christian brothers and sisters who are showing Christ’s selfless love to the people around them. We thank you for their obedience to you.
We thank you for the Christians in this country who live out the Gospel in everyday life. May it never turn into a programme or a pragmatic approach of a Christian life.
We rejoice that the Christians in the West Africa are fervent and passionate in their prayer and fasting and in their approach to outreach. May they never loose the power of passionate prayer. Give us the desire to do the same.
We pray for the emerging movements to Christ in West Africa, that they will grow deep and strong in their newfound faith.
We pray for protection from forces of evil represented in Boko Haram. We ask for Saul the Tarsus type conversions among Boko Horam.
We pray that, you would set free the Christians who practice syncretism. Would you sanctify and purify them by your Gospel. We pray that they will have boldness to let go of some of their traditions, customs and culture that are not in line with your Truth.
We pray for those 514 distinct ethnolinguistic people groups that still remain unaware of the reality of Christ, that you would reveal yourself to them. We pray for long term Gospel workers in this region, who will take the Gospel regardless of the risk and difficulties.
So that, One Day with these 514 distinct people groups we would stand before the throne and before the Lamb with multitudes too large to count, from every nation, tribe, people and tongue. And will cry out in worship with a loud voice, “ Salvation to our God, who sits on the throne and to the Perfect sinless Lamb—Jesus Christ”
