Kuwait, Arabian Peninsula
Day 8 - June 25, 2015
As Muslims are praying and fasting during Ramadan, we pray for them.
When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. Luke 9 is what local believers want us to pray through as we pray for them.
Kuwait is a very divided society. There is a huge conservative Salafist population that is constantly at odds with the government. They controlled the elected Parliament for a number of years but have been marginalized politically in the past couple of years. With the presence of the U.S. military base, the political situation is stable, but without it, there could easily be a growing instability. Pray for the government of Kuwait.
There is disunity between different churches and between local believers. Pray for growth in unity. Pray that unity would move the Kingdom of God forward.
Since the end of 2014, we have been seeking the Lord with increased prayer and fasting. We believe that God is preparing us for a coming harvest that will be unprecedented. We are also seeking the Lord for fresh, new strategies. We believe the Lord will confirm that we should continue to focus our attention in particular areas and will also lead us into some new directions. We are holding everything quite loosely right now. Pray with us for clarity.

Kuwait is not far from the evils of Daesh (ISIS). When 21 Egyptian Christians were killed in Libya, Kuwaitis again started to question the violence done in the name of Islam. After listening to Father Zakariah (Christian TV program), a Kuwait Muslim gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ. There also seems to be an increase of Iranians living in Kuwait who are interested in the Lord Jesus. Pray for Kuwaitis and Iranians to continue to question Islam and come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray that they will find Christian TV stations, Bibles, and people to tell them about the Lord (The Bible, Romans 10:14-15).
