Prayers for Persecuted Church:

JORDAN  

What does persecution look like in Jordan?

Compared to Christians living in other Middle Eastern countries, most Christians in Jordan enjoy a relatively high level of religious freedom, but Christians from Muslim backgrounds in particular can encounter opposition. If a Christian from a Muslim background publicly declares their faith, this can lead to beatings, arrest or even death.

The state exerts pressure on all Christian communities, especially through monitoring. Unrecognized churches can face harassment by public authorities, particularly those that actively evangelize. Christians who actively share their faith, or help converts, can face hostility. The presence of Islamic extremists, including returning jihadists from Syria and Iraq, continues to pose a threat to the Christian community.

 

Meet “Tareq”

“When [the leader of a Bible study group prayed with me], I felt the Holy Spirit being poured out into me. That moment changed my life. I used to be a bully, a troublemaker. But now I am a committed member of these groups, joining the Bible study meetings twice a week. I am a new creation now in Jesus Christ. I look more and more like Him.”

 

What has changed this year?

Despite dropping a place in the World Watch List, hostility toward Christians has marginally increased. There has been a rise in reported incidents of violence and less acceptance of public expressions of Christian faith, such as openly displaying Bible verses.

 

PRAY for Jordan

· Pray that Christians from Muslim backgrounds will be equipped, encouraged and empowered to stand strong and flourish in their faith.

· Ask God opportunities to increasingly open up for Christians to tell others about Jesus.

· Pray the Lord will continue to raise up new leaders to serve the Jordanian church.
