Pray for Every Nation: Cameroon

This series is based on the Radical Experiment by David Platt. You can find more information about my decision to join here. If you would like to participate, please let me know with a comment or email and feel free to grab the button on my sidebar. I hope this journey will enrich your prayer life as much as it does mine!

The country of Cameroon is found between the northern and southern areas of Africa and consists of French and English speaking peoples. Corruption in Cameroon is widespread, especially in government, and the country is deeply divided between native languages, political aspirations, and contrasting religious views. We need to pray for unity and peace in this country!

I would also ask you to consider praying for a missionary my church supports over in Cameroon, Jane Schmitz. As a single missionary woman, we are always concerned about her safety. But lately, God has chosen her to be the recipient of various faith testing opportunities. Stolen property and days without running water may seem trite in the larger context of Christianity, but can you imagine going days without using water to cook, clean, or even take a shower?

In spite of everything, Jane has maintained a positive outlook on life - her facebook statuses are always God honoring and we enjoy hearing from her even though internet connections are sketchy at best. As you pray for the people of Cameroon, please remember Jane and her continued service to Him. May she continue to be a shining light in this dark country.
