The State of Qatar, an absolute monarchy, has successfully avoided the unrest and violence of the Arab Spring. The Sunni Muslim nation is home to many South and Southeast Asians, Egyptians, Palestinians, Lebanese, Syrians, and Iranians, who comprise 90% of Qatar’s workforce. Qatar has the highest rate of population growth in the world. The population remains relatively small though, and Qatar has the highest net migration rate in the world. The nation has an emirate government with a mixture of civil and Islamic law. Nearly 80% of the population is Muslim, and it is forbidden to criticize the ruling family or Islam or to share the Gospel. Many expatriates have been forced to leave the country as a result of speaking about Christ. Immigrant Christians are allowed to practice their faith, though they are considered second hand citizens. It is also difficult for Christians to gather together, as government policy strictly regulates the meetings. Even so, land has been offered up to Christian communities to build the first churches in Qatar since the spread of Islam.

Praise Report
Praise God that churches have been unofficially allowed to exist and the government granted permission and gave land for a church complex to be shared by several churches in Qatar(The Bible, Psalm 26:12).

Prayer Request
Pray that the political situation in Qatar will ease as it has been ostracized by its neighboring countries that abruptly cut off the diplomatic relations with it (The Bible, Joshua 10:6).
Pray that in these unstable times, the Qatari people will turn to Jesus to find their ultimate peace, stability, and hope for all of eternity (The Bible, 2 Thessalonians 2:16).

Call to Salvation
Pray that the Christian migrant workers in Qatar helping the country to prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup will construct a Christian community by sharing the Gospel in this strict Wahhabi Muslim country (The Bible, Ephesians 2:21).
