Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
During our second week of prayer for Qatar, we will pray against the spirit of self-sufficiency and idols of materialism and wealth. We will ask the Lord that He reveals spiritual paucity among the Qataris.
Matthew 19:24-25 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (NIV)
Qatar is one of the wealthiest nations in the world.
When all one’s physical needs are met, when any luxury is available at the touch of the credit card, when the Lamborghini is sitting in the drive way, it is easy to believe that everything is fine forever. There is no thought of eternity. How dangerous this is?
Greed is a vice which all people struggle with, but it is especially common with the rich. Does having more satisfy? Is there ever a time when one with a limitless bank account has enough? Pray for the wealthy, who struggle with the idol of materialism. Please pray that Qataris will acknowledge this struggle and seek for change.
In fact, please pray that self-sufficient Qataris will stay awake at night thinking about the here-after. Pray that they will honestly question whether money brings them hope for eternity. Pray that they will cry out to God for answers and that He will bring them into contact with believers in Him, who tell them about eternal life in Christ.
