Pray 2 Thessalonians 3:1 with us in the United Arab Emirates

September 14, 2023

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you. -2 Thessalonians 3:1

Welcome, travelers. As our journey in prayer brings us back to the country of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), we’re reminded of a few things we’ve learned on previous visits:

  • Of the 43 people groups in the United Arab Emirates, 25 remain unreached by the gospel, and many of them are indigenous and illiterate.
  • Very few Emirati people believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. However, the number of people coming to Christ from other ethnic backgrounds, such as those from south and east Asia, is rising.
  • Sharing the gospel with Emiratis is illegal, and those who do can be arrested, imprisoned, and deported. 

Despite these difficulties, we know God is at work in the United Arab Emirates and wants the Emirati people to know of His love and salvation. Today pray obstacles are removed and His Word is allowed to run swiftly and freely throughout the country. May entire families and cities be saved by His grace and for His glory.

“My family wanted me to become an Imam, but God had other plans ….” Tomorrow we’ll share this great story from a listener in Turkey.
