Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.      
Romans 8:37-39 NKJV

PRAYING FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH
 
 

Overview:

For many years, the people of Yemen have suffered from civil wars and violence from Islamic extremists, including al-Qaida. Although the situation has further deteriorated since the start of the most recent civil war, the gospel has flourished and many Yemeni Muslims have come to know Christ. Yemeni Christians have become bolder in their outreach efforts, though it is still extremely dangerous to even be identified as a Christian. They must reach out in creative ways that are both bold and wise. Small but steady numbers of Yemenis are continually being added to the body of Christ, and more are gaining interest as the influence of Christian media grows. Most regions of the country include at least one follower of Christ.

 

Major Religion:

Nearly all Yemenis are Muslim, about one-third Shiite and two-thirds Sunnis, both of which are represented by warring factions that divide the country. Christians in Yemen account for only a small fraction of 1 percent of the population.

 

Persecutor:

Persecutors include the government, Islamic extremist groups, communities, tribes and families of Christian converts.

 

What It Means To Follow Christ In Yemen:

Converting to Christianity from Islam is a crime punishable by death, and families consider it extremely shameful for a family member to become a Christian. Christian converts face harassment, the possibility of losing jobs and family relationships, and potentially death. Christians worship secretly in homes or in small groups outdoors.

 

Access To Bibles:

Bibles can be found in Yemen, but they are difficult to obtain and dangerous for converts to own. For these reasons, many Yemeni believers access the Bible online.

 

Voice Of the Martyrs Work:

VOM helps Christians who are persecuted for their faith and supports Yemeni believers who reach out in their community. We also support various forms of media that make God’s Word more accessible inside Yemen and help Yemeni believers who had to flee and now live in nearby countries.
 

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for local fellowships meeting in secret throughout the country.
  • Pray for Ahmed and his family as they seek asylum in a foreign country because of persecution.
  • Pray that imprisoned believers will continue to find strength and encouragement in Christ.
  • Pray for displaced believers who are leaving the country as refugees.
  • Pray that the faith of persecuted Christians who leave the country will not be shaken.
  • Pray for the boldness, wisdom and protection of underground churches.
  • Pray for Sarah, who was recently released from prison.
  • Pray that a persecuted woman and her children will continue to find peace in Christ.
