Each day I plan on posting the prayer request listed on Voice of the Martyrs’ Prayer Calendar. So far, the calendar has listed prayer requests for Afghanistan, Algeria, and Azerbaijan. Yesterday began requests for Bahrain.
“In 2002, the 33 islands of Bahrain became a constitutional monarchy and to some extent there is freedom of expression. This mainly Shia-Islamic country is quite tolerant because of its international position in banking and trade. Members of religious groups are permitted to practice their faith, but only in private places of worship, and they are not allowed to advertize their services in Arabic. A considerable number of expatriate Christians work and live in Bahrain.” –Text from OpenDoors.ph on their World Watch List
