I didn’t seek out/find someone to pray for (I was so exhausted I’m not sure I wasn’t getting sick).  But  I did take some time to pray for Algeria.  This nation in northern Africa has seen literal rivers of bloodshed.  If there’s any nation that has needed healing it is Algeria.  I wasn’t even connecting this to the 40 days, but I took time to pray for this country that God’s healing would cleanse and redeem this country from the hundreds of thousands of lives that have been brutally lost in the most sickening of ways.  And prayer is the beginning of bringing healing to this nation.  God cares for the healing of the nations. After all, he is the healing Balm of Gilead.

Rev 22:  Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
