Bangladesh

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus is rapidly affecting Bangladesh. It is the poor and marginalized people suffering the worse, those living in slums and unable to stop work or socially distance. Less than 5 percent have been vaccinated due to insufficient vaccination supplies. On top of the pandemic, more than a million people were impacted by Cyclone Yaas and the nation also hosts the world’s largest settlement of Rohingya refugees. Over all these humanitarian crisis, we declare no panic and terror, but we speak out God’s goodness and His victory as He fights on our behalf (The Bible, Deuteronomy 20:1-4).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The third largest Muslim majority country in the world, Bangladesh, is densely populated. Corruption and widespread human rights abuses remain challenges. The nation’s politics continues its slow slide from the pro-independence protest movement of the late 1960s towards an increasingly one-party dominated political horizon.  This year protests gathered in the capital against the forced disappearances of almost 500 people. Despite persecution against Christian Believers, the Church has grown in faith, boldness and numbers.

Kuwait

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord we declare Your victorious domain and rule over Kuwait. Inscribe in the hearts of the Kuwaiti Christian Believers that everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even their faith. Order Kuwait that lagged in enacting needed legislation to punish femicide to enforce strict laws against such crimes. As Churches in Kuwait are eager to resume normal worship services and the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs has officially requested the Ministry of Health to allow a return to normal activities in mosques, reveal Your awesome victorious domain over the country to them. Allow the Kuwaitis to come to know the saving power of Jesus Christ through the virtual worship services (The Bible, 1 John 5:4)

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Kuwait developed a consensus style government. The Emirate of Kuwait functions as a constitutional monarchy with power vested in the Emir and a parliament. Kuwaiti citizens enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world today. Along with affluence, there has come a rapid increase in the population, both of expatriate workers as well as Kuwaiti citizens. Presently, over 50 different (non-Kuwaiti) Protestant congregations and language groups meet weekly for worship. There is substantial freedom to worship for expatriates, and there is little direct persecution of God’s people.
