This city dates back over 5,000 years. Its unique lagoon today hosts fishing and speedboats, but in the past, people came here to trade goods from around the Gulf and the world. They were also known for their shipbuilding. Fishing boats still fill the harbour.
Islam is the dominant religion and there are no officially-recognized church compounds in Um Al Quwain unlike most of the other emirates.
- Pray that the power of the Holy Spirit would convict the people of Umm al-Quwain that Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
- Pray that Sheikh Saud, the ruler of the emirate, would allow for his own people and others to worship the Lord Jesus freely. Pray that the church would be established.
- Pray a blessing on Umm al-Quwain, for their work on the sea and on the land. May the inhabitants acknowledge that Jesus is God, the Creator of the seas and lands, and the One who provides for their daily needs.
