“They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.” 2 Peter 2:19 ESV
Viewpoint: Saudi Arabia held its first-ever Formula E Race (electric cars) in 2018; people from all over the world came and watched the race as a special visa for the event came along with purchasing tickets. The Formula E Race will take place for the 5th year in a row; these days, tourists can get visas to KSA, so more people can come and enjoy the race; The Formula E Race will be a two-day event that will take place on January 27th and 28th, 2023, in Diriyah. KSA is trying to increase tourism in the kingdom to reach its Vision 2030 goal so they can be more open to the world. The country continues to open up for more people to come and tour it. For religious freedom, it remains closed; with all these changes that KSA is going through, maybe in the future, the door will be open for religious freedom.
Prayer Points: As more and more tourists are coming in to tour the country and enjoy the Formula E Race, pray that Saudis would have a chance to interact with followers of Christ. Ask that those interactions would lead to spiritual conversations, then the spiritual discussions would lead to Saudis coming to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
