Pray for Renewal in Rwanda

Description

The Rwanda genocide in 1994 claimed the lives of 800,000 people and set back the nation’s development. The country still struggles with poverty.

During the Rwanda genocide in 1994, more than 40,000 people were killed in one day at a vocational school, in Murambi, southern Rwanda.

Today, in a nearby community, Daniel Safari belongs to a group of young people, many of whom were orphaned in the genocide, who run a bakery and raise animals for income. World Vision’s vocational training programs have made life-giving opportunities.

Please pray that peace and prosperity will be the legacy of Rwanda’s post-genocide generations: “Lord, we stand in awe of Your provision for those who once struggled to make ends meet. We lift up adults who need a purpose and adequate income for their families. Help community leaders create strong markets and businesses that provide dependable opportunities. Amen.”
