Praise God for the transformation He works in our lives through our faith in Him. Pray for God to encourage us in our walk with Him through the examples we find in HIs Word and the faithful witness of other Christ-followers. Ask the Holy Spirit to convict us of sin in our lives and to empower us to resist temptation to sin. Pray for strength to persevere in our following after Christ.

The primary language is Sanaani Arabic and the primary religion is Shia Islam.

According to research there are 0.00% Evangelical Christians in this people group. Join us as we pray for the Northern Yemeni Arabs of Yemen. For more information visit brookhills.org/people-groups.
Day 1: Yemen, one of the Arab world’s poorest countries, has been devastated by a civil war that began in 2015. Praise God for He is in control of nations and governments, kings and rulers. A peace agreement was recently agreed upon last month. Pray for God to intervene and bring peace to those who suffer.

Day 3: Pray for the Northern Yemeni Arabs to increasingly hunger for the righteousness and forgiveness found only in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Day 4: Pray for the few known believers outside of Yemen to grow in holiness and love. Pray for access into their homeland where they can share who Christ is and make His name known to their families and communities.
Day 5: Pray for God to raise up believers to count the cost and go for the sake of the Northern Yemeni Arabs knowing Christ.
Day 6: Pray for God to move among the Northern Yemeni Arabs of Yemen. Pray for their hearts to be softened and their eyes opened to their need for a Savior.
