Lord, we pray for the proud Omanis who are sure of themselves that by their own efforts they will succeed. We bring to Your authority those who planned and acted as if God did not exist. It was as if they claimed to be able to control the future. They were wrong, and a confidence in themselves like that is evil. To think that they could plan the future is to sin against You. Only You can know what is to come. Lord, we even pray for the prideful Churches that talk about what they will do, speak as if they are able to make it happen. Let them realize that it is wrong to speak like this. Only You know and can make things happen (The Bible, James 4:16).
James warns us that anyone who knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, is walking in sin. Jesus, we humbly pray and ask that You will show the Christian Believers in Kazakhstan what You want them to do and how You want them to live to be witnesses for You. Give them strength and courage to do good and obey You. For those who do not yet know You, Jesus, we pray that they will come to know that You are a good God, whose plans and purposes are good and trustworthy. Help them to take that step to faith today. For the leaders of this nation, we bless them to know what is the good they ought to do, and do it for the sake of this nation (The Bible, James 4:17).
