This country is called West bank probably because it lies on the west bank of the Jordan River. Israeli military has been keeping West Bank under their occupation for many decades. The landscape of West Bank is sharing its borders with mainland Israel in the west, south and north regions. The Dead Sea coast line along the western bank of is significant for West Bank. Millions of the Palestinian people are those who were dwelling for decades and other Arabs. There have been efforts to create a Palestinian state on the West Bank of the River Jordan and Gaza on the Mediterranean coast of no avail. The continuing conflict with Israel has made the initiations futile. There is also the dispute of the status of the Palestinians of the region. Christian Believers are constantly encounter attacks of persecution by the Islamic militants. It is brutally worst for the Muslim converts to Christianity as it is making their very survival a terrible struggle all the time.
The current conflict marks the deadliest phase of violence for Palestinians since the establishment of Israel in 1948. The deadly coordinated attack on Israel by the Hamas in southern Israel snowballed into a full-scale war. The violence is spreading across the Palestinian territories with dangerous spillovers in the surrounding region.
Pray God’s intervention in the nation’s affairs ends Hamas’ evil intentions in Jesus’ Name (The Holy Bible, Exodus 14:13).
The Gaza Strip is a narrow piece of land on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea in the Middle East, bordered by Egypt to the southwest and Israel to the north and east. It is one of the most densely populated countries. Both political and militant Islamist group have been governing the state. Following its victory in the legislative elections the Islamist political and militant group Hamas gained control of Gaza. Both Israel and Egypt enforced blockade for Gaza soon after the takeover by Hamas. Those living in Gaza had to suffer hardship as they were denied of their rights. The blockade has caused severe damage and devastated the economy of the country. The country was termed as an open-air prison by the humanitarian rights organizations. Hamas militants made a blunder by invading Israeli borders with terror attacks killing hundreds of Israelites. This evoked an all-out war against Gaza by Israel. Rampant violence of extremism and terror activities have rendered life of Christian Believers dangerous in Gaza. Many thousands of people including children are killed and scores are wounded in the raging war.

Bless Adama Barrow, the President of The Gambia, with God’s wisdom and guidance to improve people’s literacy and employ the youth.
Pray for the Churches and the Christian Believers to withstand poverty and opposition and enforce the proclamation of the Gospel all across the country (The Bible, Acts 28:31).
This West African country of The Gambia is a least developed country. Due to the slow progress of human development, The Gambia still remains as one of the poorest countries in the world. It is surrounded by Senegal and its western coast on the Atlantic Ocean. It is considered to be the smallest country on the mainland of Africa. The population in The Gambia is about two million. Ten percent of the people are living in other countries for their jobs. The Gambia River runs through the middle of the country and it is the main source for water. But it is sufficient to meet the water requirement for only one-sixth of the land. The Gambia is the country predominantly Muslim. Most of the population are practicing the basic tenets of Islam. But generally, it is a tolerant country of all religious creeds and belief systems of people. It is essentially a secular country and it takes pride on its broad-minded acceptance of all faiths. About three percent of the population are Protestant Christians.

Bless the Catholic and Protestant churches to find common ground and ways to bless one another and grow together.

Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on this nation and cause a movement of Jesus’ followers to spring up and bring abundant life to their families, friends, and communities through the transformation of lives (The Bible, Psalm 51:1).
The country, also known as East Timor, had a bloody 24-year resistance against Indonesian occupiers, gaining independence officially in 2002. Since then, democratically elected governments have continued to make efforts to help this nation stand on its feet. Half of the country, with a population of only 1.36 million, still lives in extreme poverty. It also has the youngest population in Asia. High levels of youth unemployment fuel gang violence. Though it has natural resources such as gas and oil, East Timor is looking for ways to diversify its economy, including eco-tourism as this tiny island nation boasts beautiful coral reefs and coastlands. It is one of two predominantly Christian nations in Southeast Asia as around 95% of its population claim to be Roman Catholic. Churches face no persecution though Protestant Christians can be treated with suspicion.
