Oman

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The United States and the Sultanate of Oman affirmed a strategic partnership on regional security and their agreement to support stability in Yemen. The first strategic dialogue between Oman and the United States, underscored the growing partnership on regional security. The two sides reaffirmed that there is no military solution to the conflict in Yemen and underscored their support for Yemen’s territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence. Secretary Blinken and Foreign Minister Albusaidi affirmed that international disputes must be resolved peacefully and under international law. They called for a comprehensive extension of the UN-mediated truce and the launch of an inclusive political process that will allow all Yemenis to determine the future of their country. Pray for Omanis to turn to Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins.

Pray that many of them will encounter the power of God and be changed (The Bible, Psalm 34:5).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Oman is listed in 20th position in the World Watch report 2021 by Open Doors for Christian persecution. The Sultan of Oman is Haitham bin Tariq Al. The standard of living improved dramatically due to the discovery of oil. Omanis highly respect their Sultan and have enjoyed peace and prosperity under his leadership. Morden technology has vastly changed the lifestyles of Omanis. Smartphones, the internet, and social media command a great deal of the time of young and older Omanis. Oman’s population has doubled in the past 25 years and around 50% of the population is under 16 years of age. Traditional family structures are also changing. The conservative and traditional nature of Oman’s Islamic society, combined with material comfort, results in much resistance to the Gospel.
