Ways to prayer for Saudi Arabs; 90-day prayer period underway
RICHMOND, Va. (BP)--A 90-day period of worldwide prayer for Saudi Arabs recently began and will continue through October. Here are some prayer requests you can use to lift them up:
-- Pray that God will pour out His Spirit on Saudi Arabs and draw multitudes of people to Himself.
-- Pray that God will give the people He draws to Himself the faith they need to believe that Jesus is God's Son and to accept Him as their Lord and Savior.
-- Pray that God will appear to many Saudi Arabs in dreams and visions. "I will pour out my Spirit on all people .... Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions" (Joel 2:28).
-- Pray that whole families -– and whole tribes -- will come to know Christ as their Savior and Lord.
-- Pray that King Abdullah, the royal family and Saudi government leaders will come to know Jesus as Lord.
-- Pray for the effectiveness of radio, television, satellite, Internet and other media that bring the Gospel to Saudi Arabs.
-- Pray for the persecuted believers in Saudi Arabia, that God will grow His church out of their persecution. Pray for the body of Christ to be strengthened and to grow in purpose and unity throughout the country.
-- Fifty percent of the population of Saudi Arabia is under the age of 25. Pray that God will draw Saudi Arab children and youth to Himself and reveal the truth of His salvation and love to them.
-- Pray for Saudi Arab women who live under oppression and control from their families and society in general. Pray that God will lift their yoke of oppression and replace it with freedom found only in Christ.
