Open Doors Partner, Pastor Nihad, Asks Fellow Believers to Pray for Beirut

Open Doors Partner Pastor Nihad

Churches in Lebanon are requesting urgent prayer following the explosion that wiped out Beirut’s port on Tuesday 4 August, according to Open Doors UK & Ireland.

The charity reports the damage caused by the explosion will likely have a disastrous effect on the distribution of aid in the country, as well as the already-dire economic situation.

“The moment when the explosion happened, I was in my house,” says Pastor Nihad, an Open Doors partner who runs a church in Beirut. “Something like the shape of a mushroom appeared and it came in our direction – and, when it did, I got blown away with the air and the dirt and the debris.”

Comforted by Psalm 91

In the midst of this dramatic event, Pastor Nihad was reminded of Psalm 91, particularly verse 14: “‘Because he loves Me,’ says the Lord, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My Name.’
