The Invitation, July 14, 2022
On July 11, 2021 a major protest took place in Cuba. Many people throughout the country voiced their displeasure, using the slogan “Homeland, Life and Freedom.” They were complaining about food, medicine and power shortages, as well as the government’s response to Covid. This was unusual in a nation where protests are not allowed and it highlighted the ongoing needs in the country.
Please join YWAM’s prayer initiative called The Invitation as we pray for the spiritual and economic wellbeing of Cuba. Please take a moment to pray right now and please also join us on our prayer day, July 14.
- Pray for churches and believers. The government seeks to control and limit church influence. They usually refuse to issue licenses for new churches. As a result, these churches have to operate underground. Church leaders or Christian activists can face arrest, churches can be locked down and businesses can be harassed. Pray for believers, that God would give them wisdom and strength. Pray for them to love God in spite of persecution.
- Pray for provision. In Cuba, there are shortages of necessities like medicine, food and toiletries. These can be found at high prices but ordinary people often cannot afford them.
- Pray for freedom from oppression. After the protests in Cuba on July 11, 2021 hundreds were imprisoned. Pray for these prisoners and for tolerance of dissidents in the nation.
- Pray for the response to Covid. As people have gotten sick with Covid some hospitals and health centers have run out of medical supplies and some have become overcrowded. Pray that God would care for these people.
