A special event was held on Thursday in Kuwait City on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of the Iraqi invasion to Kuwait during the Gulf War. This war was the lynchpin which created the ongoing tensions in Iraq, Syria, and the creation of the Islamic State.

Pray for the people and leaders of Kuwait to look beyond the Iraqi invasion and to forge stable ties with Iraq.
Pray for more political stability in this region (The Bible, Psalm 8:6).

When Nusrat Jahan Rafi, a female student at an Islamic seminary, filed a sexual harassment complaint with the police, she was cornered by a group who asked her to withdraw the complaint. When she refused, she was attacked and burned to death, sparking protests across the nation. At least16 people have been charged over her death. Now a senior police officer has been arrested for sharing a video recording of Nusrat’s official complaint on social media.

Pray that everything will be exposed that needs to be brought into the light.
Pray that many women will turn to Jesus because of the poor treatment they receive under Islam (The Bible, Galatians 3:28).
