North Iraqi Arab in Iraq


North Iraqi Arab in Iraq

North Iraqi Arabs are incredibly diverse. Arabs are generally proud of their heritage, their mother tongue Arabic (or an Arabic dialect), and their culture of hospitality. The North Iraqi Arabs are very similar in language and culture to neighboring Arab populations.

Ministry Obstacles

While Islam and Christianity share many beliefs about God and historical figures, many Muslims view faith in Christ as a threat. Prayer and intercession are powerful tools that God can use to break down this barrier.

Outreach Ideas

The JESUS Film is available in Arabic. This is a great resource to introduce Muslims to Jesus as God. The Church needs Jesus followers around the world to share the gospel in northern Iraq.

Scripture Focus

"Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."  Isaiah 55:1

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group will soon accept God’s offer of free salvation.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Lord would open Iraqi eyes to see Christ as God in the flesh. Pray the Lord would protect Iraqis from terrorism and extremist violence. Ask the Lord to bless the government and to reveal himself to those in power. Ask the Lord to raise up strong local churches that will plant other churches.
