Benin is best known for its peaceful democracy, one of the most stable in Africa. However, corruption remains a significant issue. The country, once hosting main ports crucial in the slave trade, still negotiates shady deals. Poverty increases each year. This year deadly protests broke out after opposition parties were banned from participating in elections. The nation’s annual Voodoo Day brings thousands of participants to the country’s celebration. Voodoo, a religion approved by the government, has more than 60% devotees and contributes to significant spiritual bondages over the nation, its people and the Church. The country allows for freedom to practice and propagate any religion.

Praise Report
Christian workers are reaching remote villages with the Gospel. Pray for these new converts to establish churches in their communities (The Bible, Acts 2:38-39).

Prayer Requests
Pray that humility and repentance will grip the government (The Bible, 2 Chronicles 34:27).
Because this nation has such strong connections with voodoo, it is difficult for people involved to leave it and follow Jesus. It is also difficult for Christians to grow in their faith without dealing with the spiritual bondages of voodoo. Ask God to minister deliverance and freedom (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 2:11).

Call to Salvation
Praise God that He is Light and no darkness is in Him. Ask God to draw many people into the Light of Christ (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:6).
