Description: The Saudi Shiites are the largest minority religious sect in Saudi Arabia. Their ties with Shiites in Iraq and Iran has caused the majority Sunnis in the country to view them with suspicion.

Prayer Points:
• The Saudi Shiites have been heavily persecuted by the majority Sunni population, which follows an extreme form of Islam known as Wahhabism. Pray that this conflict might lead Saudi Shiites to question the false religious paradigms in Islam and to seek the Prince of Peace.
• The Saudi Shiites are actively trying to overthrow the ruling house of Saud. Pray for God's healing to come into their midst through Christ and that a supernatural love would be generated in the midst of this century- old conflict.
• Saudi Shiites are concentrated in the Northeast part of the country where most of the nation's oil fields are found. Pray that foreign Christian workers who are living in this area might have the burden and opportunity for witness among their Shiite neighbors.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, you see the oppression of the Saudi Shiites, both physical and spiritual, and long to bring your life into their world. May the way be opened for the gospel to go forth and light the darkness.
Each year 5,000 Saudi Shiites die without Christ.
