Druze of Syria
"Druze" is a word derived from el-Drzi, the name of one of the early propagandists of the Druze religion. The religion of the Druze began in the 9th century AD, as a sect of Islam. Druze hold the Qur'an to be sacred, but look upon it as an outer shell, holding an "inner, esoteric meaning". They can be found in Israel, Lebanon, and Syria, and follow a lifestyle of isolation.
The Druze see Jesus as a major prophet, but not the Son of God. Also, their life of isolation makes them resistant to outside influences.
Christian Arabs may have special rapport with the Druze. Perhaps the Lord will grant a burden for the Druze to some Middle Eastern Christian Arabs, and also to Messianic Jews in Israel.
Pray for the few believers among the Druze, that the Lord may strengthen them out of his glorious riches so that Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith. Pray these believers will fellowship together, and grow as the body of Christ.
Pray each individual in the Druze community will soon become persuaded that Jesus is truly the Son of God, and will place their faith in his finished work on the cross. Pray for multiplying disciples among the Druze.
"All nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name." Psalm 86:9
