Oman’s government is keen on promoting the Sultanate as an investment destination globally. New industrial investment opportunities are created. The country will launch a national e-commerce plan to boost the involvement of more investors. It has been decided to develop a general mark for quality and promotion of the plan. Considered a milestone, Oman will be the 100th country to ratify the treaty that protects the rights, pay, and conditions of seafarers. It was commemorated by a ceremony at the headquarters of the International Labor Organization in Geneva. Pray for Christian companies to invest in the Sultanate and make way for sharing the gospel. Pray for the Omani Christian Believers to understand the power in the gospel of Christ and the life-transforming anointing of the Holy Spirit exhibited powerfully through their lives (The Bible, 1 Thessalonians 1:5).
In January, anti-government rallies that turned violent resulted in the deaths of at least 230 people. Much confusion still surrounds the events, and the tens of thousands of people were detained in the days following. More than a thousand people are still waiting for trials related to the event. Some are bystanders who found themselves in the midst of the rallies and say they were arrested, tortured, and now face trials that could result in prison sentences. Pray for justice to flow. Pray for truth to be found and light to shine into dark corners. Thank you, God, that Your right hand is majestic in power and shatters the enemy (The Bible, Exodus 15:6).
