Drought, violence, famine surrounds the people of East Africa today. This drought is being quoted as the worst in 60 years and has the potential to affect more than 12 million people. Contributing to the already difficult situation are rebel groups that hinder delivery of food in the region and the need of additional funding for international aid. As humanitarian agencies are working to provide food and resources to the Horn of Africa, we can be a help to the many suffering people by praying for this nation as they face a time of great crisis.
- Pray the Lord will move in a miraculous way to get food and supplies into Africa.
- Pray this will be a time that people will look to the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior and their refuge.
- Pray protection for the people who are working and serving to try and get help to those in need.
“Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
Rescue the weak and needy;
deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.”
