Prayers for Sierra Leone - August
BBC News reported violent protests in Freetown, Sierra Leone, last week over the high cost of basic goods and alleged human rights abuses.
It was reported that at least 20 civilians and five policemen died.
A curfew was imposed on parts of the country following the protests. This was lifted on Sunday.
Calm has now been restored, but fears remain of a resurgence of protests.

Magnus' Prayer Points for August
- Please pray for the Pastors in our outreach stations in Kabala, Mathoir and Kamakontakay. Because Sierra Leone is in a serious financial and economic situation Pastors face a lot of requests for help in terms of food, health and education. This is more serious in new Churches. Pray for courage for those Ministers to be able to face those circumstances.
- Please pray against another civil conflict in Sierra Leone. The drums of tribal and regional conflict are sounding loud, sponsors by politicians of the two main political parties.
- Prayer is also needed for the sick: Regina Jackson and her husband at Lumley with blood pressure and related issues, Rugie, with myoma (uterine) multiple fibroid diagnosed again, Gibrilla Kamara (Choir Master of St. John Goderich) diagnosed with prostate cancer, and one of our Secondary School teachers at Allen Town with a swollen feet yet to be diagnosed but probably Elephantiasis.
