Lebanon

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lebanon’s corrupt political leaders and the government did not maintain the banking sector. So, it crumbled and caused a worse economic crisis. The debts to the banks were not repaid and the country’s debt has mounted to be huge. There is every possibility that the fasting Lebanese during Ramadan might go hungry. The charitable organizations will try to feed them but in a limited manner. The cost of living has increased, and donations have almost stopped. Pray for God to manifest His might and power to the Christian Believers in Lebanon. Prat for them to be strong in their faith. Prat that the corrupt leaders and officials will repent and strive for the betterment of the country. Pray for the political leaders to leave their evil ways and concentrate on their responsibilities and seriously start working for the recovery of the country’s economy

(The Bible, Deuteronomy 33:27).

Brunei

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Even though Brunei has strict Islamic law that would not be favorable to any Christian Believer facing charges, no Christian has yet been charged under the laws. Praise God for this and pray that it will continue this way in the future. However, given the strict nature of the laws, it may be that many non-Muslims live in fear preventing them from sharing their faith with Muslims. Pray that God will give wisdom and courage and that the Holy Spirit will open opportunities that only He can orchestrate. Many, Lord my God, are the wonders You have done, the things You planned for us (The Bible, Psalm 40:5).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Brunei has boasted a small but prosperous economy. Its wealthy standard of living surely contributes to the wild popularity of its sultan who provides free health care, housing, and education to his countrymen. The nation has begun exploring alternative sources of income as it foresees its oil reserves running out. Sharia (Islamic) law was fully implemented in 2019. The enormous international backlash against the death penalty by stoning homosexual acts resulted in the Sultan reneging and claiming the death penalty will not be applied, but concerns about the fate of Christians in the country remained out of the spotlight. Propagating any other religion than Islam is illegal.
