How to Pray

To be a Yemeni is to be Muslim. Converts to Chrisianity are in extreme danger, especially in the south where Al Qauda presides. The ongoing war and plight of the general population has been particularly difficult on Christians. As aid is distributed, typically through a local mosque, Christians are often overlooked.d

01
Pray for protection over the lives of new believers.
02
Pray for a growing underground church with leaders who can clearly communicate the gospel message to its members.
03
Pray for peace to return to this war-torn land.
