“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” – 2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV
Viewpoint: Last year, Saudis were allowed to dress up for “Horror Weekend.” This celebration took place in the capital city. There was a suggestion that the festival happened right before Halloween; so that it would not look like they were celebrating the Halloween holiday.
Some Saudis enjoyed and dressed up for Horror Weekend and then took to social media to encourage and support the celebration. Other Saudis were against the festival and didn’t like it at all. Again, we see Saudi society opening to new things, searching for freedom but not embracing the best thing, Jesus Christ. Only when Saudis believe and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior will they experience true freedom.
Prayer points: Pray that as Saudis obtain more freedoms in society, they will realize that true freedom only comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Ask that believers in KSA will have opportunities to share with Saudis that are open to changes. Pray that Saudis will be open-minded to hearing the Gospel and willing to accept it.
