Taif is a beautiful mountain city set in the province of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. This city is known as the "summer holiday" location for many Saudis due to it's temperate climate and incredible harvests of grapes, figs, dates and honey. This city is surrounded by many local and national parks, a crater and filled with beautiful gardens.
Along with its natural beauty comes a great infrastructure and technological development. It is a stop on a main highway through the region as well as home to a large Middle Eastern television network.
- Romans 1:20 - Pray that the Lord would use the natural beauty of the region to help Saudis see "His eternal power and Godhead."
- During the holiday months in Saudi, pray that the visitors that come to Taif would meet local and expat believers who would share the Gospel with them clearly.
- Taif is a key city in that region. Pray that the Lord would raise up more missionaries from many countries to converge there to see His church established that it might influence the entire region.
*** Please note that PTAP will be on break for the next two weeks. In the meantime, please continue to pray for the Arabian Peninsula. ***
