Lebanon

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lebanon’s corrupt political leaders and the government did not maintain the banking sector. So, it crumbled and caused a worse economic crisis. The debts to the banks were not repaid and the country’s debt has mounted to be huge. There is every possibility that the fasting Lebanese during Ramadan might go hungry. The charitable organizations will try to feed them but in a limited manner. The cost of living has increased, and donations have almost stopped. Pray for God to manifest His might and power to the Christian Believers in Lebanon. Prat for them to be strong in their faith. Prat that the corrupt leaders and officials will repent and strive for the betterment of the country. Pray for the political leaders to leave their evil ways and concentrate on their responsibilities and seriously start working for the recovery of the country’s economy

(The Bible, Deuteronomy 33:27).
