Lord, strengthen Omani Christian Believers to fight the spiritual warfare they go through as devoted followers and share the Saving Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ to their friends celebrating Eid Al Adha. Make the tighter restrictions announced by the Oman authorities to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. As the Sultanate extended its CORONAVIRUS curfew by three hours each evening for two weeks to prevent people from gathering in large numbers, help them to contemplate on calling on the name of Jesus for peace and protection. Motivate the Omanis who are good at protecting themselves from the pandemic with a healthy life practice to contemplate their souls being saved from sins. Comfort the unfortunate ones who have lost many of their friends and their loved ones. Bring cheer to the sad, worried, or anxious people and empower the Churches to extend their care and pray for their physical healing and mental wellbeing. Be thankful to God, who gives the victory through the Lord Jesus Christ (The Bible, 1 Cor. 15:57).

For the last three years, authorities have cracked down on opposition and anyone deemed to be criticizing the government using the very vague extremism laws. Pray for protection over churches, pastors, and other Christian leaders who often come under scrutiny from the authorities. Together we raise up a battle cry for Kazakhstan and remember the story of Joshua: “When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.” We pray with holy faith that satan’s grip over this nation will come crashing down, and the Church will arise (The Bible, Joshua 6:5).
