Pray for a woman working in the house of a missionary who says she is a Christian Believer but continues to practice black magic. This is a common situation. Pray that Christians will provide good teaching and discipleship helping new Believers to learn they no longer need to depend on black magic to fix their problems because there is even greater power in the Name of Jesus. Pray that Christians will be set free from the spiritual strongholds of witchcraft and find freedom in Christ (The Bible, Micah 5:11-13).

Kyrgyzstan’s Supreme Court has moved toward stripping former presidents of their immunity. Authorities have recently filed corruption charges against former Prime Minister Sapar Isakov in relation to the breakdown of the Bishkek heating and power plant. Meanwhile the Labor and Social Development Ministry has just fired three of its top ranking officials for taking family members on business trips and using diplomatic passports for personal holidays. Pray for a deep genuine commitment to follow through on all manner of corruption from the highest authorities down to the local level (The Bible, 2 Samuel 22:21).
