Pray for Saudi Arabia

“…that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away… But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.” (2 Corinthians 3:14, 16 ESV)

Saudi Arabia is the birthplace of Islam and houses the two holiest sites, Mecca and Medina. Yearly, over two million make the Hajj, or pilgrimage, to Mecca.

In recent month radical changes have come across this nation. More lenient laws and greater openness to non-Muslim influence has created new opportunity to see Jesus shared in this nation. May the Lord continue to tear away the veil and reveal himself as the true God to Muslims in Saudi Arabia. May Jesus be praised from the minaret of the Great Mosque of Mecca.

Population: 34,787,000

Unreached Population: 31,690,000 (91.8%)

Evangelical Population: 0.55%
