Pray for Jordan - facebook page

As a land once marked with the footsteps of such men as Abraham, Job, Moses, and Jesus Christ, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is rich with Biblical history. As a result, Christians consider areas of Jordan to be holy, although only two percent of the population identify themselves as followers of Christ. Muslims and Jews also believe in Jordan’s divine landscape, making the nation a crossroads of Holy Lands. Without the prevalence of oil found in most other Middle Eastern countries, the nation relies on tourism and foreign aid in order to offset a high budget deficit, and Jordan’s economy is the smallest in the Middle East. It is categorized as a restricted nation, where Christians are persecuted or oppressed as a result of government policy. A staggering 14 of the 21 people groups in Jordan have not heard the Gospel. While Islam serves as the official religion, the constitution allows for religious freedom as long as Islamic law and public morality are not violated. Though legally protected, many new followers of Christ are pressured by the Muslim society and emigrate. This results in fewer people remaining to bear witness to the transforming power of the Gospel.

Praise Report
Praise God for the Churches within Jordan maintaining good relations with each other though monitored and pressured by the Government (The Bible, 1 John 1:7).

Prayer Request
Pray that the international community will support Jordan in integrating religious freedom into security policies aimed at countering religiously motivated radicalism and terrorism (The Bible, Ezra 10:4).
Pray for King Abdullah and his family to have wisdom and protection at this time of upheaval in the Middle East (The Bible, Psalm 5:11).

Call to Salvation
Pray for the Media ministry’s effectiveness in Jordan, specifically Christian satellite TV and radio broadcasts. Pray that the unreached will hear the Good News and be equipped to effectively minister to those around them (The Bible, Ephesians 4:12).
