THIS WEEK WE'RE PRAYING FOR
Kosovo is a disputed territory claimed by Serbia, but recognized as a free state by the U.N. and many nations of the world. High unemployment, a weak economy, long-standing ethnic enmity, organized crime, and growing Muslim extremism are significant issues in Kosovo. Among the Christian minority, there is a small but growing evangelical presence. Discipleship and leadership training within the church are in great need.
God, I lift up Kosovo to You and ask for a great move of the Holy Spirit among believers in the nation. Please instill a strong sense of discipleship and open opportunities for leadership training within the Church. May Your light be evident among Your children and may many experience Your presence and hope. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
There is a small evangelical presence in Kuwait, with almost all Christians living in the nation being emigrants. Sunni Islam is the state religion and evangelizing Muslims is against the law.
Heavenly Father, please give wisdom to Christians living and working in Kuwait, so they may be a witness and a faithful testimony in that nation. Open doors and use all avenues to impact many Kuwaitis with the message of the Gospel, and grow the underground church. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM JIMMY
For two years, we have joined together weekly to pray for the needs of every nation in the world. Thank you for being so faithful! Our focus has been the advance of the Gospel to see the glory of God revealed and known throughout every nation. Our "prayer trip around the world" was a first for me. The discipline of praying for the nations has been enriching. I know our prayers have been effective in ways we may never know on this side of heaven.
The Bible teaches us to "pray without ceasing," so we want to continue to pray for nations. Moving forward, we're launching a brand new, weekly message called Dare to Ask God that will inspire you, deepen your intimacy with God, grow your leadership skills, challenge you to pray for the nations, and connect you with the ILI leaders around the world. It will be a joy to continue praying with you, and see what God will do in the nations as we “Dare to Ask!”
For His glory,
ILI International Director
