Freedom of religion is available in Kuwait, which allows all Christian communities to practice their religious rituals easily and smoothly. In appreciation, Churches are praying for the stability and safety of Kuwait and for God to prolong the life of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah. They are praising the Ministry of Interior for providing maximum security for the worshippers. In this context, the head of the local Greek Catholic Church in Kuwait said, “We will confine ourselves to religious prayers so that the parish of the country will feel the festivities and there will be no celebrations.” Pray that the children of God will dwell in safety. Pray that the Christian families and their belongings will be protected (The Bible, Zechariah 2:5).

For the first time in its history, the United Nations is trying to curb drownings in Bangladesh, which are the leading cause of child deaths in the country. 46 people die each day of drowning, most of them children. There is water everywhere in Bangladesh. Rivers, ponds, rice fields, and flood water. Most child deaths occur between 9am and 1pm when their caregivers are busy working. The UN is sponsoring child-minding centers where children can play safely while mothers work. They are also sponsoring swimming lessons for children. Pray for protection over children and young people (The Bible, Ephesians 6:1-4).
