Yemen has been undergoing a major civil war over the past three years. Cities are continuing to be bombed and the infrastructure is collapsing. The media reports that over 10,000 people have been killed with three million displaced from their homes. There is severe famine in parts of the country. Its few oil fields are not producing. Cholera is epidemic, the currency is collapsing, prices are soaring, and many in the public sector haven’t been paid in over a year. There is also fear that school age boys will be recruited to fight for the Houthis who control large areas of the country.
- Pray for an end to the war in Yemen. There have been small steps in the south to end fighting there, but that is only a small part of the overall picture.
- Pray for 24 million people of the total population of 27 million who need food aid and other aid. There is great suffering and this suffering is all man-made.
- Pray for families that have lost so much–homes, livelihoods, family members, loved ones…Some reports have stated that over 100,000 people have died in Yemen.
- Pray for the gospel to spread in Yemen. Despite all the suffering and pain, more Yemeni are walking with the Lord Jesus today than since Islam took control of this country. Pray that more people will come to know Jesus and find hope in Him.
