Lord, we praise You for Your greatness and heavenly riches. We pray that the rich Kuwaitis will not boast and take pride in their earthly riches. There are much greater and lasting imperishable riches with You. We pray that the Churches will be an example for humble living. Arrogance and pride will bring fall in life. Lord, let Kuwaitis realize that earthly riches are temporal and will pass away like a wild flower. For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business (The Bible, James 1:10-11).
Father God, you say that the one who perseveres under trial is blessed because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him. We pray for the Christian Believers in Bangladesh who are experiencing trials because of their faith in Jesus Christ. We ask you to watch over them, strengthen them, encourage them, and equip them to stand firm and endure. We bless them to know that those who love Jesus will receive the crown of life from Him (The Bible, James 1:12).
