The Tree of Life in Bahrain is one of the world’s loneliest trees. The mesquite tree sits at the highest point in the barren desert of Bahrain, hundreds of miles from the another natural tree and is thought to have tap roots reaching hundreds of feet down to aquifers. The exact age of the tree is unknown though it’s generally believed to be more than 400 years old. It is a popular tourist attraction.
Revelation 2:7 (NIV)
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
Our Father in heaven,
All of us have gratified the cravings of our flesh, following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of Your great love for us, You, rich in mercy, have made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace we have been saved.
We pray that in Your mercy, Bahrain will hear what the Spirit says, receive Your grace, and be seated in Christ Jesus in heavenly places. May this nation be saved through faith and victorious in Christ. Amen.
