Pray for Lebanon - facebook page

Lebanon was a majority Christian nation before 1970, but war, instability and the growing influence of militant Islam prompted many Christians to leave. There is a unique openness to the Gospel among Arab Muslims in Lebanon who have suffered greatly because of the war in Syria. As Lebanon does have a significant Christian population, it has become a haven for persecuted believers throughout the region. More than one million Syrian refugees have entered the country over the past seven years, increasing Lebanon's population by nearly one-fourth. Despite the country's hardships, many of the evangelical churches in Lebanon have reached out by caring for their emergency needs. In addition to having a reputation of being a free country, Lebanon is highly westernized in urban areas. Those acknowledged as Christians by birth are allowed to worship openly. Yet they can face ongoing harassment from the Muslim majority, such as denial of land acquisition and increased tax rates. More severe forms of persecution occur when believers share their faith or Muslims come to Christ. Christian converts from Islam are persecuted mostly by their families and communities.

Praise Report
Praise God that Lebanon is the only Muslim-majority country in the Middle East where evangelism is still legal. Praise God for the Churches distributing Bibles and Christian literature, along with food and other necessities to the needy people (The Bible, Isaiah 58:7).

Prayer Request
Pray for the one million refugees from hostile and neighboring countries that now live in Lebanon - over 20% of the country’s 4.8 million residents (The Bible, Isaiah 16:3).
Pray for those who placed their faith in Christ, received baptism, and are now actively witnessing to other Syrian Muslims in Lebanon (The Bible, Acts 22:15).

Call to Salvation
Pray that many Lebanese will come to personal faith and deep commitment to the Lord Jesus and become His disciples and draw multitudes to Christ (The Bible, Acts 2:38).
