JULY - WOMEN AND FAMILIES
for women in most of the Arabian Peninsula (AP) has changed over the past
fifty years. In some of the countries women have been allowed to pursue
higher education and to enter the work force. Most Arab women are covered in
black; this dress has given them greater freedom to enjoy a public life and
still retain an unblemished reputation.
Monday - Pray for God to draw entire households to Himself. Pray that God would continue to reveal Himself to whole families through dreams and visions.
Tuesday - Pray for freedom from evil spirits and oppression (Luke 8:2). Pray that women would find freedom through Christ and go on to follow Him.
Wednesday - Pray that women would know Him as "the God who sees me" (Genesis 16:13) just as their ancestor Hagar did.
Thursday - Pray for the production of videos, satellite programs, literature and other tools that minister specifically to the spiritual needs of women and their families.
Friday - Pray for Christian teachers in the schools. Pray for relationships to develop between young Christian women and children and their fellow Arab students in public schools, colleges and universities.
Saturday - Pray for the isolated female believers in the Arabian Peninsula. Pray for their safety and resolve to follow Christ. Pray for wisdom for those who are discipling them.
Sunday - Pray
that the Lord would lead Christian workers to "Lydias" (Acts 16:14, 15),
devout women and their families whom God is preparing to receive the Gospel.
