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.
Any overt expression of the Christian faith is likely to bring strong negative response.
Satellite TV and evangelistic websites are only two of the ways that the Gospel message can be communicated to these people.
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 Saudi Arabs, that their religious zeal will soon be directed toward serving Jesus the Son of God.
"Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples." Psalm 96:3
