September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 23 - Southern Asia - IFES: Give thanks for God’s provision of laptops for IFES national movement staff to stay in touch with students not just during lockdown, but also where students live in cities without staff.

September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 22 - Africa - Al Massira: Please pray for a ‘sensitive country’ in Africa, following the release from prison of new followers of Jesus who had partaken in an Al Massira Journey – coming to Christ a short while after because of the kindness of God. Pray for our dear brothers and sisters standing ‘firm in the faith’ and for the wide-spread use of the Gospel, that it may turn this nation upside down as God continues to build, strengthen, and unite His people. Pray God’s justice and peace to reign in this country. Pray for mature, spirit-led believers to proclaim the Gospel fearlessly – for God’s glory.   (Al Massira International - September 2021)
