DAY 22 - March 31
Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

Ouagadougou, or Wagadugu, is the capital of Burkina Faso, and the administrative, communications, cultural, and economic center of the nation. It is also the country’s largest city, with a population of 3.2 million. The city’s name is often shortened to Ouaga. The inhabitants are called “ouagalais.”

The rise, or arrival from elsewhere, of radical jihadist Muslim groups has brought great turmoil to Burkina Faso. Both Christians and Muslims have been targeted and murdered by these Islamist groups. These attacks, combined with existing ethnic tensions, rebel groups, and political instability, led to not one but two military coups in 2022.

On the surface, the population of Christians in the country would seem to be influential, with 20% of the people saying that they are Christian. However, the power of the spirit world has not been broken. Some say that the nation is 50% Muslim, 20% Christian, and 100% animist. The occult shows its power even in some churches.


Prayer Emphasis

  • Pray for the risen Christ to demonstrate His power and set people free.
  • Pray for the establishment of a stable and transparent government.
  • Pray for bible-focused leaders to rise in the Christian community and lead their people to freedom from the occult.
  • Pray for the teams now in Ouagadougou sharing their faith in the true Jesus.
Thanks for praying with us –

See you tomorrow!
