The Herki Kurds are a confederacy of tribes of Northern Kurdistan. They live primarily in the mountainous area where the borders of Turkey, Iran, and Iraq meet, near Lake Urmia and the town of Orumiyeh. Although their farming methods seem primitive and their technology outdated, the Herki Kurds are faring well in Turkey's rugged terrain. They are noted for their elaborate national costumes.
The Kurdish people have been Muslim for centuries. Islam is part of their identity.
Pray for the Lord to multiply the reception and influence of His Word among the Herki people, leading them to love Him with their whole being.
There are few if any followers of Jesus among the Herki Kurds today, but the Lord is calling many Kurds to himself from other Kurdish groups. Pray for the Herki believers that will soon join their ranks. Pray they will faithfully fellowship together, and be zealous to study the Scriptures and grow as believers.
Pray the Herki Kurds will live in peace with the Turkish government, and be able to raise their families in safe conditions. Pray for peace in the region of Kurdistan.
"You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9
