Bahrain

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, arouse the Bahraini Christian Believers to be vigilant against the pestilence being released in the nation in waves of attack. Let them be wise and brave to declare a war against the enemy’s onslaught on the people and wage a war to bring down the evil strongholds. Empower the Church to expose the thief who comes only to steal and kill and destroy. Embolden them to exalt the Lord Jesus who came that they might have life and have it abundantly. Make the Bahrainis heed to the CORONAIRUS taskforce instructions to receive the doses of vaccine to avoid the spike of the pandemic. Lord, bless the efforts of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, a not-for-profit healthcare education and research institution that has set up the clinical trials unit in Bahrain to try clinical trials for the use of the effectiveness of the drug Favipiravir. Energize the brave Christian Believers to fight the plots of the enemy and to become more than conquerors (The Bible, John 10:10).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Bahrain means “two bodies of water”: the salt water ocean surrounding it is one body of water, and the other is the fresh water that used to spring up in the various oases in Bahrain. The Kingdom of Bahrain is the most open island country in the Gulf region and opened its doors to some Christian influence. The constitution of Bahrain imposes no restrictions on the right to choose or practice one’s religion, but neither is there any law to prevent discrimination. Converts from Islam to Christianity are shunned by society and sometimes subjected to physical abuse.
