Operation World: Saudi Arabia

In light of what we have been discussing at The Grove, I would like to start "publishing" a nation each week to pray for. I chose S.A. this week b/c of what is going on there with the recent terrorist attacks.

Drew mentioned the book "Operation World" in church, of which I recently obtained a copy of at Grace Church while hearing one of the author's Jason Mandryk speak. I will mention ways to be praying for S.A. throughout the week based off of what I read in Operation World.

Pray for "easing of tight control, and for freedom of religious expression".
Pray "that the Saudi believers may be able to meet together in safety and have access to God's word".

    what a great blog. that book struck an interest in me. i think it would be a great idea to choose a nation per week, especially for those who don't have the book.

    awesome idea...i was going to get this book after drew's sermon as well...definitely spurred me on to think about where my passions are in the world of architecture. what a way to bring the book into the blogger world...prayer and conversation

    Thanks for the comments. I will try to keep this up to date. If you have any certain countries you want to know more about and the prayer needs, just let me know and I will try to post it.

    Grant, I have not played H2 since we last played. I am afraid I am getting behind. I have not gotten a lot of sleep and sleep sounds better than Halo. I am working this Saturday, so it is a no go then. I may be in town next weekend with Cindy.

    i think countries that The Grove will be visiting would be a good start...Tibet, Turkey, Mexico..I'm sure there are subset nations under each of these...would be nice to know more info about them and the conditions in adjacent areas. gives us a more holistic understanding of the situation. at any rate..i'm gonna have to go buy this book.

    sorry things have been rough for you...sleep does sound good. i allot time for sleep..but unfortunately..all i do is toss and turn..so even if there is time for sleep..there is no sleep. (sigh)
