United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates will participate in Israel’s popular Independence Day flyby, for the first time since normalizing relations with Israel. Israel Air Line Pilots Association was behind the festive initiative, with the event — named Peace Fly-by 2022 — marking the country’s 74th Independence Day set to see civil airplanes from both Israeli and Emirati airlines. According to the report, El Al will be flying a Boeing 787 Dreamliner; Israir Airlines, an Airbus A-320; Arkia, an Embraer 195; CAL Cargo Air Lines, a Boeing 747; and Ayit Aviation and Tourism, two Embraer. The airshow will take place at a relatively low altitude of 1,000 feet, giving spectators ample opportunity to see the aircraft. Pray for UAE to develop new relations with Israel through this participation. Pray for the Emirates to put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth (The Bible, Ephesians 4:24).
A pastor in Nepal shared how he used to lead a small church but one by one the congregation drifted away from God and left the church until even the pastor himself began to doubt. Then he met some other Christian Believers who prayed with him, taught him about Biblical leadership, and offered to support him in his ministry. This made a difference, and the young pastor began again to hold a small meeting in his home. Pray for those who have backslidden to return to the Lord. Pray for new Believers to grow deep in God’s Word and mature in faith, and pray for pastors to be supported and encouraged that God is always at work bringing new life and fresh vision (The Bible, Jeremiah 31:31).
