Insight for effective Prayer
The Gospel of Christ must be preached in all the world…including all the countries in Africa.
The major problem plaguing Pentecostal Churches in Africa is poverty. By the reason of this poverty insurgency has become cancer in some African countries. God has an agenda for the continent of Africa to reach out through the gospel of Christ.
GOFAMINT has done a lot in reaching out to some African nations but we must pray that our Churches in those countries become strong and viable to change those nations for better with the gospel.
Our prayers today shall be prophetic to bring down the strong hold of wickedness in the continent of Africa and to also enlarge the coast of Churches of Christ in the land. The Church of God must be relevant in every sphere of human endeavour and so our society must be transform through our preaching.
Africa is dear to the heart of God, because when Jesus as a baby was to be protected from the wrath of Herod, it was Africa that provided the haven. Also it was an African that carried His cross when He was on His way to Calvary. Africa is surely next in God’s agenda, and GOFAMINT must be adequately prepared to capture the harvest by the spirit of revelation.
We must not be put off by the current economic realities of Africa, because the future is certainly much better than our past, judging from the prophecies that has gone ahead us before now. The Scripture also confirms that ‘In that time shall the present be brought unto the Lord of hosts of a people…terrible from their beginning….a nation….trodden under foot… to the place of the name of the Lord of hosts…’ Isaiah 18:7. Irrespective of whatever Africa may be passing through at the moment, the continent prophetically holds the promise to finance God’s end-time agenda. We must key into this.

- Use our Church in Egypt as a point of contact for many of the north African countries where Islam has held sway, that the Lord will cause the collapse of all iron curtains hindering the gospel advance.
- It is the desire of GOFAMINT to penetrate North Africa hard grounds such as Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Chad and Sudan before the Lord comes. Pray for open doors, anointing and provisions, especially through our French speaking assemblies.
