Challenges for Prayer

Kuwait’s material wealth has answered few problems. The government is divided between modernists and traditionalists. Islamist activity is increasing. Young people are frustrated and very bored. Materialism still holds powerful sway, since many have no greater vision about how to use their wealth for good. Pray that Kuwaiti leaders and people might embrace the Saviour.

Other Christian media are valuable, both for evangelism and for discipling and training. Pray for:

a) Radio broadcasts – 105 hours per week in several languages (42 hours per week in Arabic), mostly by FEBA, IBRA, TWR and AWR. Pray for more programmes on FM and satellite, instead of shortwave and medium wave. Pray also for wide audiences and lasting responses.

b) Christian audio and video materials. Pray for effective distribution and follow-through. The JESUS film on video has been widely and quietly disseminated.

c) Kuwait’s Christian website (www.prayforkuwait.com ) is becoming an effective tool in reaching Kuwaitis with the good news, in discipling Kuwaiti believers and in communicating the spiritual needs of Kuwait to the rest of the world.
