May They Behold Him

“I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.” Numbers 24:17   We pray for the people of Qatar to see you Lord, Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The Church Will Grow

“Our FATHER who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven” Luke 11:2-4 Heavenly Father, give Your children in Qatar the assurance YOUR will is that the bounds of the gospel-church be enlarged; the kingdom of the world be made Christ’s kingdom, and all men live with the character of Christ embedded in their hearts.

His Love Endures Forever

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” —Lamentations 3:22-23   Steadfast: firm, fixed in place, unwavering.   The Lord’s love for Qatar is steadfast. His heart is resolutely committed to this country.   Lord, display your steadfast love in the lives of individuals and families. Magnify your mercy in the darkest situations. There is no end to hope in You. As the sun rises over Qatar, may many wake up with a fresh revelation of you, the One who is faithful and true.

We need to come back to God daily, many times each day and many ways, for we can quickly become independent and self-seeking.   Father we pray that You will meet these daily needs of the people of Qatar and be their sustenance. May they turn…

Peace and Favor

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:12-13   Lord Jesus, you deserve all the glory. Thank you for your promise of peace and favor to all people. We ask that you open the eyes of the people of Qatar to experience that peace and favor.

Forgiveness

“Our FATHER who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” —Luke 11:2-4   This is not a plea of merit, but a plea of grace. Father God we recognize that you are the ultimate forgiver in sending Your son to die in our place.   We pray for the people of Qatar to accept this wonderful offer of forgiveness You have for them and may they in…
