United Arab Emirates

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

There is a possibility that an equipped neighborhood will be established for Jews who are living in the Emirates. This a joyful news for the Jews. The present leader of the Association of Gulf Jewish Communities is Dr. Elie Abadie. He is the Senior Rabbi of the Jewish Council of the Emirates in the UAE.  Since UAE is growing with a diversified population, it is planning to develop an ID for everyone. It is being planned to get biographical and employment data of the country’s entire population. This will be the new Emirates ID for people in the future. Pray for Jewish settlers in UAE to receive the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Savior. Pray for the ten million people of UAE to know the mighty name of Jesus and many of them to accept that Jesus Christ is the Lord of all (The Bible, Romans 1:20).
