On August 18th, Mali underwent a Coup that overthrew the sitting leader, President Ibrahim Keïta Boubou. President Keita resigned and dissolved the existing government after gunshots were shot in the town of Kati. Former President Keita was recently released from prison. The country is currently being ruled by the military. Once the Covid crisis passes, the nation has been promised a fair democracy.
What could this mean for World Evangelism?
Mali is a country of over 1.2 million people, predominantly Muslim. As Africa’s 8th largest country, Mali cries out for the gospel truth.
Now that the government system is changing, it is time for the gospel to infiltrate this nation.
Here are a few ways that we can pray for Mali.
PRAY FOR THE NEW GOVERNMENT.
We don’t know what Mali’s new government is going to look like, but we do know that God has all the control. Let’s pray that the leaders, laws, and systems put into place will be in favor of allowing missionaries in.
PRAY FOR MEN TO GO.
If nobody is willing to go, an open door won’t do much. We need men who are willing to give their lives for the people of Mali. Let’s pray that God would mercifully prepare laborers for this nation.
PRAY FOR THE HEART OF THE MALIANS.
If God gives us an open door and the men to go through it, it will be up to the Malians whether or not they accept salvation. Currently, they are spiritually blinded. Islam has overtaken their lives. Will you pray that God would open the eyes and the hearts of the people of Mali to the Gospel?
