How you can pray for the political crisis in Togo

Compassion Togo asks that we pray during a time of political crisis in the country.

Faure Gnassingbé, Togo’s president, has ruled Togo for 12 years. In 2002 his predecessor and father, Gnassingbé Eyadéma, lowered the legal age limit for a president to make way for his son. Eyadéma had seized power in a military coup in 1967. Fifty years later, the family has been in power longer than any other African regime.

Protesters have held several rallies since August, demanding an end to Togo's 50-year ruling family dynasty. They want to see constitutional reforms introduced, including a two-term limit for presidents. Tensions are mounting. Tragically a 9-year-old boy was killed during recent protests.

Please join us in praying for:

  • Peace. Father we pray that no more innocent lives would be lost during the clashes.
  • Stability We pray for political stability and security so the poorest in Togo would not suffer.
  • Justice. We pray that the Togolese government would fight injustice and corruption.

"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." Isaiah 26:3
