The Arabian Peninsula Partnership

The Gospel for every person and a church for every people in the Arabian Peninsula amongst indigenous peoples

11 December 2018


Let's focus our prayers on Bahrain and Qatar next week when they will be celebrating their national days.


1. Praise God for a handful of new contacts in recent months, local believers and those who are interested in reading the Bible. Also, praise God for increased and extended prayer for Bahrain which has brought about new interest in knowing more about Jesus.

2. There is a causeway between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia where Saudis can drive to Bahrain which they do on weekends. Pray that many Saudis will hear the gospel in Bahrain where there is more freedom to do so.

3. Pray for the Sunni population and the Persian-Bahraini communities which have great spiritual needs at the moment. The majority of Bahrainis are Shia.

4. Pray that God would raise up many laborers for the harvest from various places such as expat churches that have many believers who could reach out to the Bahraini people. Pray for unity of vision and passion among all believers to reach the Bahraini people. Also, pray that there would be more seasons of extended prayer and worship!

1. Qatar is truly a dry and barren land, both physically and spiritually. Pray for streams in the desert, that the Qatari people would eat and drink from Jesus, the living water and bread of life. In addition, pray for the believers in Qatar. It can be a very discouraging place to be spiritually. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring revival and renewal.

2. Pray 1 Timothy 2:1-4. Pray for the leaders of Qatar, especially the ruler - Sheikh Tamim bin Hamed al Thani, so that many will be saved through the knowledge of the truth of the gospel of grace found only in Jesus Christ. Pray that the local and expat believers would be able to live tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior. Pray that whole Qatari families will know the one God, the one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus who gave himself as a ransom for all.

3. In 2022, the spotlight will be on Qatar as they host the World Cup. Pray that even now, doors of opportunity would open for the gospel in a land that has been closed on many fronts for years.
