Are they Arabs or Bedouins? The Harasis have a Bedouin background but like many other Bedouins, they tend to become more like the dominant Arabic speaking culture around them. Though they have their own Harsusi language, most also speak Arabic, the trade language of Oman.
The Arabized Harasi people live in Oman, a country that is almost entirely Muslim. They live in a culture where Islam as a religious and political force is seldom challenged. There are almost no Christian believers in that country to explain their reason for faith in the risen Savior.
It's possible that radio broadcasts will be effective with this people group that sometimes lives on the edge of Omani civilization.
"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." Ephesians 6:11
Pray for the Holy Spirit to give His armor to the believers among today’s people group.
Pray for faithful intercessors for the Arabized Harasi people until there is a strong movement to Christ among them. Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead them to the cross. Pray for their elders and community leaders to welcome those who come in the name of the Lord.
