“For God so loved [the people of Gabon] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
The Gabonese Republic is a country on the west coast of Central Africa. Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, and the Republic of the Congo are neighboring nations. Gabon has a population of about 1.5 million. Its capital and largest city is Libreville.
Gabon’s official language is French. The national motto is: “Union, work, justice.” Many Gabonese people mix Christian teachings with indigenous religious traditions. Today we pray that every citizen of Gabon will embrace the pure doctrine of Jesus Christ: “We have denounced disgraceful, underhanded ways; we refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God (2 Cor. 4:2).
