Lebanon's financial situation is deteriorating amid a rising political divide. International financial institutions say that it is up to the country to restore trust and overcome the current liquidity crisis. A shortage of US dollars is forcing Lebanese authorities to work on new financial instruments and trade mechanisms to import wheat, medicine and fuel, triggering internal tensions and a confidence crisis. Ali Yaacoub, secretary general of the small El-Nahj party, says that Lebanon is accumulating more and more debt each year, and that its dollar reserves are "basically over." "This affects people. Even more importantly, people don't trust the government. They think that the government is corrupted. It has not been like this since the civil war," he said.

Pray that the leaders will look to God for financial sustenance. Pray that the county’s economy will improve and the liquidity crisis will be solved (The Bible, Ecclesiastes 7:12).
