On August 31st, 2014 two UK human rights reporters went missing in Qatar while they were investigating the living and working conditions of Nepalese migrant workers.

Today the British embassy confirmed the reporters’ release and that they will soon be back in the UK. Let’s take this as an opportunity to pray: Pray that the reporters recover from their dramatic experience. Pray that the living and working conditions of the migrant workers in Qatar will drastically improve. Pray that the Qatari government will…


“Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good. They must not slander anyone and must avoid quarreling. Instead, they should be gentle and show true humility to everyone.” –Titus 3:1-2 In Titus 3:1-2, and also Romans 13:1-7, we are reminded that as Christians we are to have respect for government authority. We are not to be slanderers, but to be speakers of life. Pray for the government leaders of Qatar. Pray that they would have soft hearts towards Christianity and that they would become believers themselves.

“If you found a cure for cancer, wouldn’t it be inconceivable to hide it from the rest of mankind? How much more inconceivable to keep silent the eternal wages of death?” Pray that Christians in Qatar would receive boldness from the Holy Spirit to share the gospel message with those around them.



  Among Qatari people wealth and luxury are abundant. As humans we were created by God for relationship with Him; we were made to crave it and nothing else can satisfy that hunger. “Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!” –Ecclesiastes 5:10 Pray that Qataris realize that wealth and luxury are not enough, and that they would seek a relationship with Jesus.  


“Your whole life is to be overmastered by Me; you are to have no end, no aim, and no purpose but Mine.” –from Oswald Chamber’s, My Utmost for His Highest. We know that as believers in Jesus Christ our purpose in life is to serve God’s purpose–that all may hear the truth of His redemption and come salvation in Him.

Qatar is in a predicament. The discovery of abundant natural resources attracted foreigners from around the globe to take jobs. However, now, there is a tug of war between who should be given the jobs: Qataris or foreigners. About 8 years ago the electric company replaced all Qatari employees with Southeast Asians. The typical Qatari is expensive to hire. Qataris have a long list of social obligations to family and are unlikely to work the same hours as others, thus seen as unreliable employees. Frequently, even companies with Qatari business owners do not hire Qataris; when they are hired, they…

ACTS 9:10-17

Pray that expat Christians in Qatar would listen and respond to the Holy Spirit like Ananias in Acts 9, even when that means threats and potential persecution like deportation. “Now there was a believer in Damascus named Ananias. The Lord spoke to him in a vision, calling, “Ananias!” “Yes, Lord!” he replied. The Lord said, “Go over to Straight Street, to the house of Judas. When you get there, ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul. He is praying to me right now. I have shown him a vision of a man named Ananias coming in and laying hands…


Luke 10:2 ‘These were Jesus’ instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.
