Almighty God, we join our prayers with those of many Christians in Africa, asking for your blessing and guidance on believers who hold positions of political power in their continent. We pray that they will have wisdom and courage to use their position to help Your people, especially in responding to the challenges the Church currently faces. May they recognise that they have been given their position “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). We pray that other Christians will support and pray for their brothers and sisters in politics, recognising that they need special help to walk with You in such a calling. We ask this in the Name of Christ.
