Northern Kurds in Turkey

The Northern Kurds of Turkey live in a rugged area, along the Turkey-Iran border. Since 1965, these proud and fiercely independent people have made a clear return to their roots. There is an increasing desire to speak Kurdish. This nationalism is laying the foundations for a Kurdish cultural and literary revival.

Ministry Obstacles
Kurdish identity has for centuries included commitment to Islam.

Outreach Ideas
Pray that strong movements to Jesus will bring whole families into rich experiences of God's blessings.

Pray for the followers of Christ
The Lord is beginning to build his church among the Kurds. Please pray the Christian believers will become firmly established in the faith, trusting fully in Jesus, not only for salvation, but for power to live an abundant life here and now.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the ancient Kurdish peoples of Turkey will be given the opportunity to know Christ. Pray as well for peace with the Turkish government, and with their neighbors. Pray for stability in the area of Kurdistan.

Scripture Focus
As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the good news that was preached to you. 1 Pet 1:24-25
