Challenges for Prayer

Expatriates are drawn from many nations by the high earnings in Qatar, but Christians are limited by strict anti-proselytism laws. Pray for the employment opportunities (from manual labour up to executive positions) to be filled by Christians who would be an intentional Kingdom presence in Qatar.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
