Bangladesh

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

International Christian Concern reported that a retired policeman donated land and money to build a church on it. He realized they needed a bigger church building when a relative died and the old church could not hold all the mourners. Praise God for the growing Church. Praise God that Christian Believers in Bangladesh are buried with Jesus through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, they too may live a new life.  Pray for more to step into this new life through this new church building (The Bible, Romans 6:4).

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.  Despite persecution against Christian Believers, the Church has grown in faith, boldness, and numbers.

Kuwait

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

In a rare occurrence, the Eta Aquariids meteor shower will be visible from Kuwait when crossing the Earth’s atmosphere from April 19 to May 28. The Eta Aquariids is named after the Aquarius constellation, driven from the debris of Halley’s Comet. This well-known comet is visible from the earth every 76 years. Thank God for Al-Saadoun, the Kuwaiti astronomer who has made the research and explained the meteor activity.

Pray that the amazing celestial display will enlighten the minds of people to see the glorious acts of God revealed in the Bible. Pray for Kuwaitis to have a glimpse of the Lord who sits upon the throne and can make all things new in their lives. Pray that they will find the one true and faithful God (The Bible, Revelation 21:5).
