Representatives of more than 200 political parties and civil society organizations are meeting in Antananarivo, the capital, May 3 to 5 to seek consensus on a way forward.  Please support this initiative by praying for:

Please pray also that any forthcoming elections in Madagascar will be seen to be free, fair, inclusive and credible—a valid expression of the will of the people and a firm foundation on which to build a prosperous and equitable nation.  Pray specifically for institutions such as Madagascar’s National Independent Electoral Commission (CENI-T), the transitional government, the Council of Churches, and the Southern African Development Community and United Nations officials in Madagascar to help facilitate the implementation of the country’s peace plan and any electoral process.  And pray that the FFKM reconciliation initiative and any forthcoming elections will work together to create a society in which all may know the fullness of life promised in Jesus Christ.
