Heavenly Father, You alone are the reigning king over all the earth. You are sovereign in every situation, in every pocket of the world, in every human life. In Your hands, the world was made and by them it is held together. You have never taken advantage of Your subjects, never tempted us, never abused us, never shunned us for spite. I pray that You would now reach into the heart of this self-proclaimed king, Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, and give him love for his people. I pray that You would open his heart to the citizens of his nation who believe differently that he does. I pray that You would give him a sense of true justice and cause him to act upon it. I pray that You would abolish the nepotism in his government, that You would bring peace to the hearts of those uprising against his kingship, and to those who defend him. I pray that You would place compassion in the heart of King Al-Khalifa, and break the violence that proceeds from it. I pray that he would enact laws for the freedom of his people, and that You give strength and courage to the Christians under his rule. I pray that You would continue to reign supreme in Bahrain, and I thank You for Your faithfulness in doing so. In Jesus’ names I pray and ask these things, Amen.
