Lebanon

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The people of Lebanon are struggling with violence and destruction. The poor are suffering from an economic meltdown. May they have access to lifesaving medicines at affordable prices. Pray for all their needs to be met. We declare that the Lord will walk among the suffering Lebanese and be their God (The Bible, Leviticus 26:11-12).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Michel Aoun is the president of the Lebanese Republic and the head of the state of Lebanon. Hassan Diab is the prime minister. Lebanon has suffered profound economic problems. The value of its currency has plummeted. Ramifications of the pandemic and explosion in Beirut are added to the ongoing crisis. The weekend of October 9-10 was a time of widespread power outages in Lebanon that stemmed from the fuel shortage. Without the fuel, the Lebanese could not operate their power plants. Small shops were closed which are essential for the Lebanese to get food and other necessities.
