40 Days of Prayer - Day 6

Day 6 – Corruption

So that you might live in a manner worthy of the Lord and be fully pleasing to him as you bear fruit while doing all kinds of good things and growing in the full knowledge of God. You are being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might, so that you might patiently endure everything with joy.  – Colossians 1:10-11

Many of the government systems in countries across Africa are susceptible to corruption, causing the most vulnerable to face an even greater level of vulnerability and desperation. Pray for the church to defend the most vulnerable, and pray for Godly people in places of influence to speak on their behalf.  Ask God to protect and bring hope to people who are victims of injustice and oppression.
