Who will read 1Timothy 2:1-2 (Portfolio of Scriptures, Told to Pray, Page 1 #7)?
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
If God answers this prayer, all of the world’s problems will be taken care of…think how glorious that would be.
Now let each person pray for 1 country at a time until 12 African countries are prayed for. Pray by locating the ruler, the country and mentioning the politics and prayer.

When we know and keep Christ’s commands we become more effective in prayer. Who will read Christ’s first command from Matthew 5:12 and pray we keep it? (Portfolio of Scripture, Commands of Christ, page 4, #1)
Read Matthew 5:12 and prays we keep it.
12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Jesus commands us to rejoice in persecution.
We pause now for anyone to make a personal prayer for yourself, nation or world.
