  • Pray for Bahrain

    Pray on behalf of those converting from Islam to Christianity, as they typically face opposition from family, society and governing authorities.

    Pray for the effectiveness of ministries that are reaching out to the people of Bahrain by communicating the Gospel message through the Internet and satellite TV.

    Pray that the factional unrest within the country will subside, and that many will instead be led in their search for spiritual truth -- finding it in Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6).
