Kuwait

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The tiny country of Kuwait grapples with a worsening political crisis. It is blocking critical economic and social reforms. A new uncertainty is created as the government of Kuwait resigned. In the past year and a half, three times collective government resignation has happened. The weather condition is worsening in Kuwait as the summer season was so hot. Birds dropped dead from the sky. Sea horses boiled to death in the bay. Dead clams coated the rocks; their shells popped open like they had been steamed.

Pray that the extremes of climate in the country will change. Pray that this life-threatening situation will be stopped by the power of God. Pray that the Emirates will realize that the Lord their God is in their midst, a mighty One who will save. Pray for many Kuwaitis to come to the saving knowledge of Christ and seek His help for ending the existential peril (The Bible, Habakkuk 2:14).
