Yemen

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, vitalize the Churches to pray and reach out a helping hand to those suffering from the war, disease, and famine. Bolster the Christian Believers with renewed strength to raise their voices for the feeble ones and declare war against the works of the enemy. Inspire the international fraternity to extend needed medical aids, food, and health counselling to the displaced mass of people. Lord, save and preserve the lives of millions of the Yemeni children suffering from extreme starvation, and their education and futures are under constant threat because of the continuing war. Lord, command the war in Yemen to cease as it has led to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with tens of thousands killed, millions displaced and two-thirds of its 30 million population are dependent on aid. Lord, rebuke the beast among the reeds, the herd of bulls among the calves of the nations. Humbled, may the beast bring bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war (The Bible, Psalm 68:30).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the Middle East and has faced decades of instability. Civil war has gripped the country and left the people in desperate need of humanitarian aid. Millions of people face shortages of food and water, and less than half the country’s health facilities are operational. Approximately 16.4 million people currently have no access to healthcare. Cities are continuing to be bombed and the infrastructure is collapsing. There is severe famine in parts of the country. The humanitarian crisis in Yemen is severe as many are starving or on the verge of having nothing to eat. Malnutrition and infant mortality is becoming normal.
