As Muslims around the world enter another week of the Ramadan fast, we ask you to urgently focus your prayers on the children of Yemen.
Aid agencies warn that Yemen faces a terrible disaster. The combination of rising global food prices, severe water shortages, local conflict and a seriously weakened government have left around ten million people unable to buy food. Many children and babies are severely malnourished, and some are not able to survive.
Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world with unemployment around 40%. It is even harder to find work during Ramadan.
Pray for intervention
Please pray for God’s intervention in this drastic situation.
- Pray for the Yemeni people to receive the urgent help they need.
- Pray for food to be made available at affordable prices so that people can feed their families.
- Pray for our Father to make His presence known to the Yemeni people.
