Druze in Lebanon

Have you ever heard of the Druze people? Their homeland is Lebanon, Israel and Syria. The Druze religion is an offshoot of Islam and appeared in the ninth century. They are firmly monotheistic. Druze hold the Koran as sacred. They also have their own inspired scripture called the Book of Wisdom. Druze believe in the transmigration of the soul. That is, at death, one's soul is instantaneously reincarnated, and it is reborn into another life. Druze do not evangelize or accept converts into their religion. They are loyal to the country where they live. They are known as fierce soldiers who have no fear of death. Druze in Lebanon speak Northern Levantine Arabic as their first language.

Ministry Obstacles

If a Druze man or woman becomes a follower of Jesus Christ, he or she will be excluded from the Druze community. The nation of Lebanon is currently experiencing chaos, violence and insecurity. This makes it difficult for ideas to spread.

Outreach Ideas

There are no believers among the Druze in Lebanon as far as we know, so pray for this to change soon.

Scripture Focus

"And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd."  Ezekiel 34:23

Scripture Prayer

Pray for today’s people group to submit to the one true shepherd, Jesus Christ.

Prayer Focus

Radio and TV programs in Levantine Arabic can deliver the good news with the Druze. Pray the Lord would lead Druze to listen to Christian radio programs. Pray that many Druze living outside of their homeland would become followers of Jesus Christ. Pray that believing Druze would go to Lebanon and tell their family and friends about the savior.
