Kuwait

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Praise Report

We praise God that the Kuwaiti Christian Believers are growing into a community of indigenous believers and boldly sharing their faith in Christ to others (The Bible, Acts 4:29)

We praise God that foreign Christians have the freedom to live and work in Kuwait. Thank God for the existing House Churches and for the Bibles sold legally (The Bible, Ephesians 1:12).

Prayer Requests

Pray for Kuwaiti Christians who are sometimes detained and interrogated by the authorities and face severe threats if they continue to practice their faith and meet with other believers (The Bible, 1 Thessalonians 3:4).

Pray for those Kuwaitis who are willing to hear the Gospel and want to respond to God and overcome cultural and familial pressures that prevent many from following Christ (The Bible, John 16:33).

Call to Salvation

We pray that Christian Believers in Kuwait will live as powerful testimonies of the Gospel to their Muslim neighbors and co-workers and lead many to the love of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Acts 10:27).

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.
