Introduction

The lifestyle of Palestinian Arabs varies greatly. Some are fully integrated into Israel's modern industrial economy while others live as bedouins and farmers. Educated Palestinians who become citizens hold prestigious jobs. The less educated Palestinians live in villages, farm the land, and take care of goats and sheep. Some Arab villages are without electricity and access to clean water and indoor plumbing.


Ministry Obstacles

Palestinian Arabs view Christians as supporting Israel, their enemy. For that reason, many consider it treason to turn to Jesus for spiritual answers.


Outreach Ideas

Christian believers can build bridges of trust by helping Palestinian villages to get the clean water and electricity they need.


Prayer Focus

Ask God to give Palestinian Arab believers opportunities to share the love of Christ. Pray that they would carry the fragrance of Christ in such a way that the Savior will be irresistible. Pray that God would raise up faithful intercessors who will stand in the gap for the Palestinian Arabs in Israel. Pray that their traditional culture would soften, creating open doors for the good news to be preached among Palestinian Arabs. Ask the Lord to raise up a movement to Christ among Palestinian Arabs this decade.
