Pray for Jordan - facebook page

In his two decades on the throne, Jordan’s King Abdullah II has faced almost constant challenges to the stability and prosperity of the kingdom, just as his father Hussein did for the half-century of his rule. Survival in a dangerous neighbourhood is the quintessential characteristic strength of the Hashemites. Now Abdullah is facing a new confluence of dangers and threats—including from traditional allies. Abdullah ascended the throne after his father’s last-minute decision to change the line of succession, ousting his brother Hassan and naming his eldest son. Almost immediately, the crash of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process at Camp David and the second intifada placed enormous pressure on Jordan’s own peace treaty with Israel.

Pray that the peace process will resume.
Pray that the successive leader will deliver to the need (The Bible, Ecclesiastes 2:12).
