OVERVIEW OF KUWAIT

KuwaitRestrictions from the government can mostly be explained by dictatorial paranoia as the country’s ruler does not want any organized group to threaten his rule. Under the guise of implementing the laws of blasphemy, apostasy and proselytizing, government officials harassed and abused Christians in 2014. In terms of the general population, a significant number of Kuwaitis are tolerant toward non-Muslim residents; however, there is a group of radical Muslims that do not want to see Christians in the country.

PRAYER POINTS

  • That the government will stop the harassment and abuse of Christians
  • That Christians who meet in secret will not be discovered and will flourish in their faith
  • For the Kuwaiti government to not enforce the laws of apostasy, blasphemy and proselytizing
