Saudi Arabia

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The justice for Khashoggi has suffered a setback as Turkey suspends the trial and transferred it to Saudi Arabia. Human rights organizations have warned that Saudi Arabia will try to the cover-up of the killing. Pray for a fair trial and that the culprits will be booked and punished for the crime. The Grand Mosque in Mecca is being disinfected and sterilized 10 times a day to provide a healthy and safe environment that helps worshippers perform their rituals. Pray for God to reveal His glorious power to the Saudi Arabians and make them bow before the true living God. Pray that they believe in the God of all flesh and that nothing is too hard for Him. Pray that the Lord who has made the heavens and the earth by Your great power to stretch forth His nail-pierced arms and manifest His Glorious sovereignty to the pilgrims(The Bible, Jeremiah 10:12).
