Kuwait

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Bless the few handful of indigenous Kuwaiti believers be accepted by their families and to attend the Christian worship services.

 

Bless those forced to leave the country after becoming Christians will grow in faith.

 

Bless the persecuted believers who fled the country will be able to visit their families.

 

Pray for Kuwait’s younger generation, open to new ideas, to seek God’s help and find the saving grace of the Lod Jesus Christ (The Bible, Philippians 4:19).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Kuwait moved down a little to 49th position in the World Watch report 2022 by Open Doors for Christian persecution. Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah is the current emir in Kuwait. It is a very small country with the capital city – Kuwait City- being the center of all activities. It has developed a consensus-style government. The Emirate of Kuwait functions as a constitutional monarchy with power vested in the Emir and a parliament. Kuwaiti citizens enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world today. Kuwait has a relatively liberal Islamic regime. Kuwaiti citizens are nearly all Muslim. Christians face risks, especially converts from Islam to Christianity. They face discrimination and harassment from their family and community.
