Arab, Saudi - Hijazi in Saudi Arabia

Arabia once had a large Christian population, but they were expelled when Islam gained control 1300 years ago. Saudi Arabs see themselves as preservers of the Islamic faith, and the Wahabi fundamentalists were formed here. The Hijazi Arabs speak one of the variants of the Arabic language.

Ministry Obstacles

Any overt expression of the Christian faith is likely to bring strong negative response.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for the Saudis to be delivered from their fear of "Christendom" and to embrace God's blessing through his Word for their families and clans.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray fervently for the few believers among the Arabs of Saudi Arabia, for their protection, and for their growth in the faith. Pray they will be courageous yet very tactful.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Saudi Arabs, that their religious zeal will soon be directed toward serving Jesus the Son of God.

Scripture Focus

"Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples." Psalm 96:3
