PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The unique I2U2 Group of countries aim to harness the vibrancy of societies and entrepreneurial spirit to tackle some of the greatest challenges. It focuses on joint investments and new initiatives in water, energy, transportation, space, health, and food security. The Heads of Government of the United Arab Emirates India, Israel, and the United States, convened the first leaders’ meeting. The inaugural meeting focused on the food security crisis and clean energy.  The leaders discussed innovative ways to ensure longer-term, more diversified food production and food delivery systems that can better manage global food shocks. They reaffirmed their support for the Abraham Accords and other peace and normalization arrangements with Israel. Pray for the unified new way of collaboration with these countries to result in unity in the faith and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Ephesians 4:3).
