November 7 Today we ask that you remember the youth of Niger. Like young people everywhere, they face temptation to sin and yield to peer pressure. And like young people everywhere, they face a world that is changing and becoming much different than what their parents knew.

Pray that out of this generation of young people, God would raise up men and women among the Zerma who will be the means of making Christ known throughout Niger and even beyond Niger’s borders.

November 8 With the end of the millet harvest in Niger it’s now “gardening season” for many. It takes a lot of hard work to produce these vegetables and fruit, but it is a great way to supplement diet and income, especially in areas that had a poor harvest. Pray for perseverance and stamina as many Zerma plant, water, and care for these gardens.

November 9 Pray for the many new outreach groups that have been started this past year among the Zerma—pray for the “seekers” who’ve been coming to these groups that they will understand and respond to the gospel.
