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.

May They Know of Your Love

?The LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him? (Hab.2:20)   Lord, we bow in reference at your throne of Grace. We are awed by your love and mercy. We pray for all the people of Qatar to know that love as well.

Here Comes Another Wave of Revival

?Revival is just you and me walking along the highway in complete oneness with the Lord Jesus and with one another, with cups continually cleansed and overflowing with the life and love of God? ? Roy Hession, ?The Calvary Road?   Revival is a state of abiding. Revival is constant connection with God that leads to God-filled connections between people. We need revival in Qatar. We long for Jesus to be glorified as His life overflows in and through us.   Father we pray that believers (expat and local) in Qatar would encounter God powerfully, in complete unity. We pray…

The Bread of Life

Jesus declared: ?I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.? Come people of Qatar, taste and see, the Lord is good! (John 6:35, Ps 34:8)

The Women Seeking God

?Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: ?I have seen the Lord! ? And she told them that he had said these things to her. ? ?John 20:18 Lord, your ways are truly not our ways and your thoughts not ours. Thank you for breaking the cultural code of the time and appeared first to a woman who was seeking you outside the tomb. We pray for all the seeking women in Qatar to see you as the Risen Lord.

Plant Your Church, Lord

Jesus, we ask for a church planting movement in Qatar today. Nothing is impossible for you. Please start small groups in homes, on university campuses, and other places that will multiply across the nation. Amen!

Strengthen Your Church

Thank you Father for the small, but growing, number of believers in Qatar. We know its not an easy place to be a follower of Jesus, so we ask you to strengthen them and protect them. We ask that you grow them in love and fellowship with each other. We pray that you will give them opportunities this week to share the Gospel with someone who is hungry to know.

MERCY FOR ALL

Pray that everyone in Qatar would come to know that Jesus came to give mercy to all people. Pray that they would welcome His mercy in their lives and in turn show mercy to others.

THE CHURCH COMPOUND

Praise God that the Church Compound exists and is growing. Pray that God would mobilize the thousands of expatriate Christians here to pray for Qataris and to reach out to their Muslim friends.

CHILD REARING & the MORAL COMPASS

CHILD REARING and the MORAL COMPASS Parents everywhere are concerned about raising their children well. Qatari parents, religious or not, are no exception. Because Islam is based on a moral code, even the irreligious often want to teach their children religious values. . Each family is different. Some parents take extreme measures to protect their children from evil, fearing their children will be exposed to too many damaging influences at too young an age. One such family only allows their children to interact with extended family or the hired nanny so their children internalize family behaviors and culture. Another parent rarely allows…

A WALLED CITY

walled city

Walls are a common theme in Doha. When one missionary walks through his neighborhood, he only sees imposing 10-foot walls surrounding huge new Qatari family palaces with lush gardens and run-down homes inhabited by laborers from the east. Qatari families are very private. Each house, each family, each person, has a façade. Women are covered. Men wear robes. Houses are hidden. Everything is white, giving the appearance that everyone is clean, everyone is okay, everything is fine. Despite the image they project, many are hurting and dying in darkness. Ancient Jericho was another place with walls. Joshua 6:1 tells us…
