54 independent nations of Africa have been freed from colonialism but still need freedom from poverty, exploitation, tribalism, occult, illiteracy, environmental pollution, gender inequality, corruption, abortion and a host of other sins, as do the remaining 3 territories. Most of all they need spiritual freedom. In the kingdom of God these will not be the issues. Fasting, praying the sword of the Spirit, agreeing, confessing, proclaiming the Word of God over the nations of Africa will bring God’s kingdom on earth. He will fulfil His promise when we pray with faith in our hearts and agreement with Him, His word and with one another.
“Africa will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”
“That at the Name of Yeshua, in Africa, every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Yeshua Messiah is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Hab. 2:14; Phil 2: 10,11
We pray that God may give vision to all believers that every one of the 1,031,402,000 African people is made in the image and likeness of God and therefore must be restored by coming to the saving knowledge of the truth. 1 Tim 2:4
Lord, manifest yourself through dreams and visions to all the people of Africa and show:
that you are the way, the truth and life and no one can go to the Father except through you. John 14:6

Lord we ask you to:
give the most effective and productive strategy to all your Image Bearers so you can open the eyes of the lost people, take them out from darkness into your marvellous light, from the kingdom of Satan into your kingdom, in order that they may have inheritance among your saints. Acts 26:17,18
let all the believers, the Image Bearers of Africa, adopt the 3746 people groups living in a million cities, villages and shanty towns of Africa and go and make disciples, baptize, break bread and plant the kingdom in the hearts of those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. Math. 4:16; 28:18-20; Joel 3:12
That all your Image Bearers will seek your kingdom first and then only other things. Matt. 6:33

Let there be no place in the city where the Prayer Walkers have not demolished the strongholds of the strongman and crushed the head of the serpent. 1 Tim. 2:8, Math. 12:28,29; Joshua 1:3; Rom. 16:20
that the elders of the churches will be people of character and integrity, husbands of one wife, whose children walk in faith; that they will be hospitable and good stewards of God’s resources and sound in doctrine, who know how to answer those who contradict. Tim. 1:5-9

for Presidents, Prime ministers, for Members of Parliament, Chief ministers, leaders of political parties, administrators, chiefs, police and all those who have rule and authority over Africans; we offer supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings, for all men/women in high places so that all may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. For this is good and acceptable in your sight, whose will is that all may come to the knowledge of truth and be saved.” Lord give us the courage and the wisdom and the power to share the truth with them. 1Tim. 2:1-4
