Northern Yemeni Arabs in Yemen

The northern tribes of Yemen may be referred to as the Sanaani Arabs. They reside in the northern mountains and north-eastern deserts, as well as around the capital city of Sana'a. The growing of the narcotic qat has become the mainstay of rural Yemen, and nearly half of the national economy is involved in qat.

Ministry Obstacles

Muslims know Jesus (Isa) is the Messiah (al Masih) sent by God, embodying his Word, but view Christianity as a campaign to destroy their families, communities and way of life.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for laborers to have wisdom in applying the pattern Jesus established in Matthew 10 and Luke 10 for blessing Yemeni households.

Scripture Focus

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!"  Psalm 100:4

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to enter His courts with joyful praise!

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few believers among the Sanaani Arabs, that they would become effective and fruitful in sowing God's Word among their families and communities to fuel a movement of God's blessing spreading from household to household. Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among the families and communities of the northern tribes of Yemen, that Yemeni families would increasingly experience the righteousness and forgiveness found only in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
