Pray for persecuted Christians in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia

(Prayer information via OpenDoors)

Saudi ArabiaThe open practice of any religion other than Islam is forbidden here, and conversion to another faith is punishable by death. Most Christians are ex-pats from Asia or Africa. During 2013, several Christian migrant fellowships were raided by police, and tens of worshippers detained and deported. Muslim-background believers run the risk of honor killing if their faith is discovered. Yet a small but growing number of Muslims are coming to Christ and sharing their faith on the Internet and satellite TV.


  • Widespread unemployment and increasing discontent amongst young people makes this a breeding ground for extremists. Ask God to halt the spread of extremist views.
  • That more Muslims will meet Jesus through satellite TV or dreams and visions of Jesus .
  • In 2013, two men were convicted of proselytizing, and were sentenced to a few hundred lashes and several years in prison. Pray for their release.
