Yemeni Christians Face Food Shortage

[164] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Yemeni Christians.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has essentially halted grain exports from both countries, and an impending food crisis faces other countries throughout the Middle East, some of which were already experiencing a significant economic crisis before hostilities began. Our Christian brothers and sisters in Yemen face the potential for severe hardship, as Yemen imports the majority of its food from neighboring countries. “There already was a humanitarian disaster in Yemen before the current wheat crisis,” a front-line worker shared. “The people of Yemen need our prayers.”

  • Lord,
    Thank You for our brothers and sisters in Yemen. It breaks my heart that they have suffered like they have over the last several years. I pray that amidst all the hardship and pain, that Your presence would be felt and that all would put their trust in You. You provide everything for those who love You and are called according to Your purpose.

You created a good world and supplied everything we need to live in it, but wicked people defy You and do not care at all for others, only themselves.

  • Good Shepherd, feed your sheep! Do not withhold your blessing of food & provision to your children. Even in hard times, pour your goodness on them. You own the cattle on a 1000 hills. The earth belongs to you. Cause miraculous provision to be available. I pray the leaders who are withholding from the people would awaken to the evil they do. Have mercy!
