Prayer to prevent war in West Africa
today we pray that Gambian President Yahya Jammeh will accept his defeat and hand over power
to the elected successor, Adama Barrow,
before war breaks out. Lord, with tens of thousands of Gambians taking refuge
in neighboring Senegal, and armed forces from Senegal, Nigeria and Lagos
preparing for imminent battle, it is imperative for Jammeh to step down in
order to protect his people and nation. Please compel him to do the right
thing. Bring about a peaceful resolution. We pray for refugees as they flee and
tourists as they evacuate. Protect and guide them. We desire peace in West
Africa. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
