Lebanon

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Raise warriors of faith among the Christian Believers to audaciously declare the mighty name of Jesus Christ over the country of Lebanon and bravely fight against the demonic forces. Inspire them to wait for the Lord and renew their strength.  Renew then that they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Increase the international help Lebanon′s caretaker Prime Minister, Hassan Diab, called for to avoid a “social explosion” caused by one of the worst depressions in the country. Lord. hear the pleadings of the Prime Minister to the international community to help save Lebanese from death and prevent Lebanon’s demise. Lift up the living conditions of the people as the country’s current financial meltdown due to the CORONAVIRUS has hit them hard. Rescue Lebanon from the worst depression as the currency has lost more than 90 percent of its value, and more than half of the population has been propelled into poverty (The Bible, Isaiah 40:31).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Lebanon was a majority Christian nation before 1970, but war, instability and the growing influence of militant Islam prompted many Christians to leave. There is a unique openness to the Gospel among Arab Muslims in Lebanon who have suffered greatly because of the war in Syria. As Lebanon does have a significant Christian population, it has become a haven for persecuted believers throughout the region. In addition to having a reputation of being a free country, Lebanon is highly westernized in urban areas. Those acknowledged as Christians by birth are allowed to worship openly.

Brunei

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

In the last year Brunei has experienced a considerable increase in mental illness, and the suicide rate has more than doubled. Health professionals say this can be attributed to several factors such as increasing materialism, breakdown in the traditional family values, and dissatisfaction with suppression. In our prayers we raise the war cry and declare that the suppression of Islam be shattered! We praise the Name of Jesus over this nation and speak to the Church to grow in number and boldness.  We ask with holy faith for a mighty harvest of souls in Brunei, that many be saved from suicidal thoughts in Jesus’ Name (The Bible, Isaiah 8:9).

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. Propagating any other religion than Islam has become illegal.
