When a family came to know Christ, their relatives responded angrily and expelled them from their home. The local Church responded by building the family a new home, but insufficient funds prevented them from finishing. The community mocked the Christians, saying that God didn’t seem to be looking after them. After praying, donations came in, and the congregation saw that God did indeed provide. Pray that God strengthens the Christian Believers. Pray that communities may see tangible evidence of God’s love, care, and provision for those who follow Jesus Christ (The Bible, Genesis 16:13).
Yemeni armed groups have warned the U.S. amid the Israel-Hamas war to refrain from helping Israel. These Yemeni armed factions connected closely with Iran have warned that they will attack American assets if the United States gets involved in supporting Israel in the Gaza conflict. They voiced this threat as solid support by the United States for Israel’s response to the attacks and a pledge to provide additional munitions and deploy a carrier strike group to the Eastern Mediterranean. The armed Yemeni groups were allegedly attacking U.S. bases in Iraq. The influential Houthi Movement leader warned that the group would respond to any U.S. intervention in Gaza with drones, missiles, and other military options. Pray for no escalation of war that will hit humanitarian conditions and loss of lives. Pray for God’s protection over the persecuted Church and His strengthening grace to His people not to be hopeless (The Bible, 2 Chronicles 20:17).
