Iraqi Arab in United Arab Emirates

What makes an Arab an Arab? They populate most of the Middle East and 22 countries. The two most common traits that all Arabs have is their language, Arabic, and their shared cultural values. Iraqi Arabs began to migrate to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because of instability at home. Students make up a large portion of the immigration to the UAE in light of its reputable institutions across the Middle East.

Ministry Obstacles

Iraqi Arabs often identify heavily with Islam, and they automatically reject anything that sounds Christian to them. Breaking down the "walls" that prevent Iraqi Arabs from hearing and receiving the gospel will take much prayer and wisdom.

Outreach Ideas

Sending professional missionaries (doctors, engineers, etc.) who can interact on a personal or professional way will give more opportunities to share Christ with them. They should also show respect for their culture and attempt to learn more about it. In doing so, they can offer an exchange of ideas, giving an opportunity to tell them about Jesus and the salvation he offers.

Scripture Focus

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,"  Ephesians 1:3

Scripture Prayer

Thank the Lord that He is giving His spiritual blessings to this people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Iraqi Arabs would respond to prayers for them to have a curiosity about Christ and that the Holy Spirit would soften their hearts. Pray for a Christ-ward movement among Iraqi Arabs, not only in the UAE but also in Iraq.
