Turkmenistan’s economy boomed until 2015. During those years, the government agreed to many construction contracts with international companies to build factories and highways. However, the economic downturn since 2015 has resulted in the nation being so short of money that it has not been able to pay up on the construction contracts. Companies from Russia, Belarus, Turkey and Germany have sued for nonpayment. Pray that God will grant the right people wisdom to know how best to extricate this nation from these predicaments. Pray that those in government will be humbled. Pray also that they might seek God’s face (The Bible, Hebrews 11:6).
