Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Isaiah 55:6 (NIV)

Lebanon is nearly three years into one of the world’s greatest economic and financial crises. Still recovering from the shock of a port explosion in August 2020, Lebanon is now struggling with a plummeting economy and an unstable political situation.

The Lebanese currency is in continuous fluctuation, significantly increasing the price of food, water, healthcare, and education. Many Lebanese people are now unable to afford these basic necessities with 74% of the population living in poverty.

Fuel shortages and power outages are rife with homes and businesses being without power for up to 23 hours per day. For necessary buildings such as hospitals and schools, private generators – an expensive alternative – have helped but been unable to fill the void. Hospitals and schools are now battling to stay open as a result of the energy crisis.

Please pray:

  • As we face an energy crisis in the UK, pray for the people of Lebanon who have very little fuel and power accessible to them
  • For those who now find themselves in poverty, struggling to feed their families
  • For our local church partner in Beirut as they seek to support as many families as possible during this difficult time
  • For the government appointed earlier this year to lead Lebanon out of this crisis well and to listen to the needs of their people
  • That those whom the church is supporting would know the nearness of Christ and come to faith in Him
  • That Lebanon would remain a relatively open country and refuge for Christians from other countries in the Middle East
