Prayer about attack on interim president of Mali

Father God, we are grateful that Mali’s interim president, Colonel Assimi Goita, was unharmed after a man attempted to stab him with a knife. We are thankful for the security members who interceded quickly to disarm the attacker. We praise you that none of the worshippers at the Grand Mosque were harmed. Lord, we are aware of the political unrest in Mali within the past decade. We know that Colonel Goita becoming the country’s president is not without controversy. It is our prayer that the government, pro-government militia, and autonomous groups in northern Mali will abide by the peace agreement they signed, and that they will work together toward stability throughout the country. We pray for collaboration and compromise. We pray that you will work in their hearts and point them to you, the Prince of Peace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
