Weekly Prayer - June 30, 2020
This week, we would like to pray for Kuwait.
Recently, the drive to redress demographic imbalance and increase the proportion of nationals in the country has gained momentum in Kuwait. This has been a part of wider efforts by some political leaders and lawmakers to curtail number of migrant workers in the country and further "Kuwaitize" the economy.
In fact, this push has become heightened in recent months with several Kuwaiti public figures accusing expatriates, mainly the unskilled labour, of straining the country's health facilities and increasing the COVID-19 threat.
We do not know if these pushes and debates within Kuwait's parliament would lead to real changes for the wider Kuwaiti society--both nationals and expatriates. Nonetheless, we know that God is in control of the situation. Let us pray for the leaders of Kuwait, the migrant workers, and their local sponsors.
