Prayer Point

Prayer point:  Yemen

The United Nations says Yemen’s war and its fallout is the worst crisis since World War II. More than 20 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance:  7.3 million do not know where there next meal is coming from.  There are more than 1 million child victims and 1 child dies every ten minutes due to starvation and malnutrition.  There are 500,000 suspected cholera cases.  More than £10 billion worth of infrastructure damage and economic loss has been incurred.

Please pray for: 

  • Relief and an end to the war
  • Those starving, the sick and diseased, and for grieving families
  • Aid agencies working in Yemen: Doctors Without Borders, World Food Programme, UNICEF, Save The Children, Christian Aid, CARE, UNHCR

Leaving Islam is punishable by death. However, it is reported that many Muslims are turning to Christ. Praise God for the Yemenis who have turned to Christ - ask God to help them grow in faith.  (Open Doors)
