United Arab Emirates

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord unleash Your mighty unction upon the Christian Believers in United Arab Emirates to boldly declare the name of Jesus Christ to their neighbors and in the spheres of their influence. Make the Churches proclaim the good news of Salvation among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack the evil plots of the enemy. Lord, raise an army of young people who will profess their faith in Christ to shout with a war cry against the evil abounding among the youth. Break their addictions to the wicked habits and release them into a life of freedom in Christ. Bring to an end the emerging rivalry playing out between United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia on the plan to boost oil output to diversify their economies. Let there be stability as United Arab Emirates’ non-oil private sector expanded for a seventh consecutive month as CORONAVIRUS measures continued to hamper business activity (The Bible, Joel 3:9).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The UAE is a federation of seven states, called emirates, ruled by tribal chiefs called Sheiks or Emirs. The UAE has approved the use of emergency authorization of the CORONAVIRUS vaccine to at-risk workers. In a series of tweets, UAE allowed the emergency use of COVID-19 vaccine saying one of the very first doses will be available to “first defense” workers who are at risk.  UAE’s move to allow emergency use of the vaccine seems to have been motivated towards curbing the virus to spread further but the risk involved in the move cannot be ignored too.
