Prayer Request : Arab, Saudi-Hijazi

July 12, 2012

We need to learn to be concerned and praying for the needs of the nations. My goal as I am learning through various websites is to bring us all into a greater understanding of how desperate our world is for Jesus.

The next few paragraphs were copied from the following link, click on it for more information or just read below to learn of how we can pray for this group of Saudi Arabs known as the Hijazi Arabs;  http://www.radical.net/blog/2012/05/unreached-6/#more-1548

Saudi Arabia is home to a number of different Arab groups. The Hijazi Arab (more commonly known as the Saudi Arab) form the majority of the Saudi Arabian population and live predominantly along the Red Sea coast and in the major urban areas. The Hijazi Arab are practically all Muslim, but represent a variety of Islamic sects. The founding of Islam in the seventh century profoundly altered the course of Saudi history. In the mid-1700′s, Mohammed ibn Abd al-Wahhab formed his fundamentalist sect, and today, the Saudi see themselves as the preservers of the true Islamic faith. The city of Mecca on the Red Sea coast is the holy place of pilgrimage that all Muslims must try to visit at least once in their lifetime. At the present time, few of the Hijazi Arab in Saudi Arabia have accepted Jesus as their Savior. A profession of faith in Jesus may cost a person his family, his honor, his job, or even his life. Evangelization of this group will be challenging, due to the nature of the Arabs’ lifestyle and belief system. Prayer is the key to reaching them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
