Arab, Bahraini of Bahrain

Bahrain is the smallest Arab state, being an island country in the Persian Gulf. Its strategic location has brought rule and influence from the Assyrians, Babylonians, Greeks, Persians, and finally the Arabs, under whom the island became Muslim. Until Bahrain adopted Islam in 629 AD, it was a center for Nestorian Christianity. Oil was discovered in 1932 and has brought rapid modernization to Bahrain.

Ministry Obstacles

Wealth often stands as an obstacle to faith in Christ, since it reduces our sense of need.

Outreach Ideas

Bahrain is quite accessible to Gospel radio, television, internet, etc. Pray the hearts of the people will be open to hear and receive.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the few followers of Christ among the Bahraini Arabs, that they will fellowship together, being united in love around truth. Pray they will be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Bahrainis will use their wealth wisely to help improve the living conditions of the poor.
