When the U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan, an incensed China tested missiles directly over Taiwan, again threatening with its military power. A ministry spokeswoman said that Taiwan rejects China’s “One Country, Two Systems” plan saying that as mainland China has never actually ruled Taiwan, it has no right to lay claim to it or decide its future; a decision that can only be made by the people of Taiwan. Pray that Taiwan may see a new beginning; a coming out from under the oppressive threat of mainland China. Pray for wisdom for all involved. Pray for peace over this region (The Bible, 2 Thessalonians 3:16).
Bahrain has joined the UAE, Egypt and Jordan in this new partnership, which will focus on a range of economic investments in the region. This will bolster Arab economic integration as these are among the key economies of the region. The fact that the countries all have peace with Israel illustrates new possibilities for the Abraham Accords because trade is the key building block of a new peace. Bahrain has joined the Industrial Partnership for Sustainable Economic Development, boosting the industrial manufacturing value add of the alliance to more than $112.5 billion. At the same time Bahrain is voicing concern for the worrisome interference of Iran for long years. Pray for the Bahrainis to search for truth and good and new ways of living by accepting Christ. Pray for the country to overcome rebellion from neighboring provinces (The Bible, Ezra 4:15).
