Today we shall be engaging in prayer for the nation of Ethiopia. Ethiopia is one of the African countries that never fell under colonization. However, in 1936 the country’s capital was captured by the Italian empire. It was not long before the Nation of Ethiopia got freedom from colonization.
Despite being one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa, Ethiopia still has poverty to contend with. Ethiopians have seen abject poverty flourish on their land and they seem helpless about. Prayer for the Nation of Ethiopia will save the country from the greatest enemy of her own self.
Following the war against her own neighbour Eritrea, Ethiopia felt the heavy blow of the war. As if that wasn’t enough, natural disaster is the biggest causes of poverty in Ethiopia.
More than half of the entire population of Ethiopia are into agriculture. However, the level of poverty in the country has tamed the commercialization of modernised farming. Also, natural disaster like droughts and other abnormal atmospheric conditions has made it very difficult for Ethiopians to conveniently feed themselves.
WHY SHOULD YOU PRAY FOR THE NATION OF ETHIOPIA
The book of Psalm chapter 122:6 has taught us to always pray for the good of Jerusalem. The entire continent of Africa is our Jerusalem here on Earth, because this is the place that we dwell.
Whether you are an Ethiopian, Ghanaian, Nigerian or whichever country that you belong to on the continent of Africa try to say a prayer for the Nation of Ethiopia.
Maybe you want to pray for Ethiopia but you don’t know how to uniformly structure your prayers, read the next paragraph.
PRAY FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF ETHIOPIA
Do you wonder why you should pray for the government of Ethiopia? The scripture in the book of 1Timothy Chapter 2:1-3 admonish us to pray for our leaders and men in the position of authority.
The present world is in political turmoil. Some Christians do not know that it is their duty to pray for their government. Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Timothy was telling the people to always pray for their leaders so that they themselves can live peacefully in a life of holiness and godliness.
Do you know what that means? The only time that one can serve God well is when the Nation is at peace. When everything is going in the way manner it ought to, it gives people the opportunity to serve God better. God Himself understands this, He instructed Moses to go down to Egypt and tell Pharoah to let His people go, so that they may serve Him. God understands that man needs some level of dominance and peace in his life to serve God well.
Always pray for the Nation of Ethiopia that God should Himself select the leaders. The people after God’s heart, who will do the biddings of God Almighty, God should make them leaders. The book of proverb 29:2 when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
Pray that as many as those that are in government in Ethiopia, God should give them His own heart. That they will lead the people in alignment to the Will of God.
The Bible made us understand that every good idea from God. You can as well pray that the idea to solve the present problem in Ethiopia, God should grant it for the men in government.
PRAY FOR THE ECONOMY OF ETHIOPIA
The people can only flourish well when the economy of a Nation is grounded and working effectively. Should any negative thing happen to the economy, the people will pay dearly for it.
The economy of Ethiopia needs prayer. If Ethiopia is regarded as one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa and yet poverty still flourish without a hindrance, it is high time you should say a prayer for the Nation of Ethiopia.
When God restored the captivity of Zion, they were like those who dream, Psalm 126: 1. If God can stabilize the economy of Zion, He can do the same to the economy of Ethiopia.
Things should not go wrong where there are firebrand Christians, because when there are people to pray, there is God Almighty who is still in the business of answering prayers.
PRAY FOR THE CITIZENS OF ETHIOPIA
When Christ Jesus was talking about the church, He didn’t mean the physical structure but the people. While saying a prayer for the Nation of Ethiopia, remember her citizens, the people of Ethiopia. The people of Ethiopia are going through a lot. They need the strength of God to carry on. Always pray that God should give them the strength not to backslide from His presence. The heart of a man is prone to evil. There is a need for you to pray that God should grant the people of Ethiopia the heart to love one another just like Christ loved the church.
PRAY FOR THE CHURCH IN ETHIOPIA
The churches in Ethiopia needs prayer. This is a time when people backslide, when churches drift away from the scheme of God. We are in peril time when pastors no longer wait to hear from God before they speak the church. This is a time when a ceaseless battle is being waged against the church.The church should also be our focal areas. Never you think the church doesn’t need prayers.
The Bible says we wrestle not against flesh and blood but powers and principalities in high places. In this trying time, pray that the churches in Ethiopia where they truly worship God in truth and spirit should continue to wax stronger. The gate of hell must not prevail over the Church.
Conclusively, if we sincerely follow the sequence and structure of this prayer, we would cover more ground for God in the Nation of Ethiopia. It is our collective responsibility to alleviate the Nation of Ethiopia from her travails.The people and the entire continent of Africa will be great if we can all say a prayer for the Nation of Ethiopia.
