June 22

Bible Readings:

Jonah 4:111; Luke 15:110

Reflection Questions:

  • How would you compare your level of concern for your comfort and well-being with your level of respect for those who are far from Christ?
  • Does your focus on mission compel you to search for the lost and intentionally pursue their rescue carefully?
  • Are you overjoyed when a new believer comes to faith in Christ? How is your life focused on helping this happen as often as possible?

Prayer Prompts:

  • That our hearts would be tender and compassionate towards those far from Christ.
  • That the fruit of our mission would be much rejoicing in Heaven over the many sinners who repent.
  • That, as The Alliance, we would not give up in our pursuit of the Yemeni Refugee Diaspora, but that we would search carefully and pursue every possible option until they embrace Christ.

Listening Prayer:

  • Jesus, how can I join you in your careful search of those you are pursuing?

Yemeni Refugee Diaspora:

Over the years, the Yemeni diaspora has settled in Saudi Arabia, the UK, the USA, Egypt, Djibouti, Somalia, UAE, and other Gulf countries. More Yemenis have found refuge in places like Egypt, Djibouti, and Somalia, with a larger influx of those leaving in recent years.

Away from the influence of their homeland, it is easier for the Yemeni diaspora to become followers of Christ, and there is a growing number of seekers.

However, there are very few intentional workers among them. Though less than 1% are believers, there are several informal house church groups. Some have also joined local churches in the countries where they are scattered.

Pray with us:

Father, you are the Shepherd of the Yemenis. As many have fled Yemen and settled in other nations, may they know the tender voice of the Shepherd who leads them beside green pastures and still waters. Where the enemy wants to steal, kill, and destroy, we bless them with the protection of their Shepherd God, who gives them abundant life. We bless Yemenis with knowing the voice of their Shepherd God, who leads them on the right paths.

Thank you for calling Yemeni believers to yourself. We bless them as they grow in the knowledge of the Lord. May they also grow in perseverance as they follow you, Jesus. We bless them with the joy of the Lord as their strength. Father, would you enable them by your Spirit to bear witness for Jesus Christ. Amen.
