Arab, Gulf in Iraq

Gulf Arabs are those from the countries bordering the Persian Gulf: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. The Arab states of the Persian Gulf share a regional culture that is sometimes referred to as "khaleeji (gulf) culture". They all speak Gulf Arabic and share similar music styles, cuisine, and dress. Most Arabs living near the Persian Gulf also trace their ancestry back to Arab tribes of either Najd (in what is now central Saudi Arabia) or Yemen. All the Arab States of the Persian Gulf have significant revenues from oil and gas and, with the exception of Saudi Arabia, have small local populations. Gulf Arabs today control much wealth.

Ministry Obstacles

Great wealth often lures people into a false sense of security, allowing them to think they don't need God.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps many Arabs of the Persian Gulf region will discover the availability on the Internet of the Jesus film, scripture, and other resources in the Arabic language. Pray especially that youth will discover these and download them and view them.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray for the few Gulf Arabs who identify themselves as Christians, and also for those followers of Christ who are secret believers. Pray they will find scripture and other resources which will lead them to a correct understanding of what it means to know and follow Christ.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray wealthy Gulf Arabs will be given an awareness of how much they need forgiveness of sin, and will be led to the humility needed to accept the free gift of eternal life found through faith in Christ.

Scripture Focus

"And to Him was given dominion,Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed." Daniel 7:14
