The government of Bahrain has decided to revamp its approach to industrial policy. It wants the public sector to lead the charge now. The government will be out of the way for these sectors. The Country plans to liberalize all the spheres of the economy that will including international trade, migration of people, and the flow of capital money. The Government will play the role of overseer and enabler for them. Bahrain’s biggest asset manager has launched its first global institutional blockchain fund. This technology will help allocate funds for those who begin with startups. Pray for the competency of the city workers to improve and for corruption to be dealt with properly. Pray for the Bahrainis to see the glory and power of salvation of God. Pray for the Christian Believers to exercise their authority in Christ and free people from darkness and sickness to light and health (The Bible, (Matthew 16:19).
Russia’s war in Ukraine is causing many to wonder if China has the same plans for Taiwan, including the use of military force. Just hours after a US delegation arrived in Taiwan in April, China launched drills around Taiwan, including navy frigates, bombers, and fighter planes. Pray for ongoing wisdom and courage for leaders in Taiwan. Pray for the Lord’s plans and purposes to prevail. Remember that the grass withers and the flowers fall, leaders rise to power and fall from power, and there are times of war and times of peace, but the Word of our all-powerful God endures forever (The Bible, Isaiah 40:8).
