Father, I thank You that You love every person in the world and You are not willing that even one should perish. So I want to share in Your heart to see every person come home by declaring Your unconditional love for Benin today.
Father, I ask that Your Kingdom would come and Your will would be done in Benin and I pray that every person who lives there, would encounter a fresh revelation of Your amazing love for them in Christ today.
In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
