Arab, Palestinian of West Bank / Gaza

 A key people in the middle east.
 

Palestinians are generally pleasant, generous and friendly. They are traditionally hospitable and prepare elaborate dinners for their guests, regardless of their economic situation. Palestinians are predominantly adherents of Sunni Islam with a minority Christian community. The Holy Land, birthplace of Jesus Christ and the land from where Christianity spread over the entire world, is also the birthplace of the Palestinian Church.

Ministry Obstacles
Turmoil in Israel and the West Bank / Gaza makes Christian witness to the Palestinians challenging, but turmoil sometimes makes people more open to change.

Outreach Ideas
Christians need to be genuinely concerned about the plight of the Palestinians, doing what they can to minister to these people. Christ died for Palestinians, as well as for others.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Palestinian Arabs have had a strong Christian presence for generations, but today they struggle greatly. Pray for the believers in Christ, that they will be accepted by both Muslim Arabs and Jews. Christians in other parts of the world need to be alert to the needs of the Palestinian Christians, praying for them and doing what they can to alleviate their suffering.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the Palestinians in both Israel and the West Bank / Gaza to increasingly experience peace, with political stability, and improving economic conditions.

Scripture Focus
“Since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 18:18
