Prayer for Qatar and Reunion: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey -October 9

Today's journeys might leave your head spinning - from Puerto Rico we are jetting over to Qatar in the Middle East, then zooming down to Reunion in Africa! Hold on tight - and read pages 697-700.

Qatar has broken from many other nations in the Middle East by offering land for churches (for non-Qataris living and working in the country) - the first to be built in Qatar since Islam's arrival.  Reunion is a nation in many ways bound to the past, defined in so many areas by the legacy of slavery.

My prayer for today: Lord, we ask You to bless Qatar for their openness to churches .We ask that  these buildings bring unity, effective discipling, and sensitive evangelism. Enable these churches to be a tremendous blessing in Qatar. We pray for Qataris to come to faith in You and for the church to have wisdom how to disciple and walk with these new Muslim Background Believers. We pray for the Christian impact on society to be strong and obvious .For Reunion, Lord, we praise You for the growth of the church and ask You to do a deep work of healing and restoration from the past legacy of slavery. We pray for complete deliverance for believers and that their freedom will attract nonbelievers to the Gospel. Raise up and equip leaders for Your kingdom purposes. In Jesus' name, amen.
