“For God so loved [the people of Cote d’Ivoire] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
The Republic of Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) is located in West Africa. Liberia, Ghana, Guinea, Burkina Faso, and Mali are bordering countries. Cote d’Ivoire has a population of 24 million. Its capital is Yamoussoukro. The largest city is the port of Abidjan. Cote d’Ivoire’s official language is French. The national motto is: “Unity—discipline–work.”
Today we pray that every Ivoirian will yield to “the discipline of the Lord,” the training that produces “the peaceful fruit of righteousness” (Heb. 12:5, 11).
