Order a Prayer Lantern Day 11: pray for YEMEN Yemen has seen political turmoil and sporadic violence since 2012 when the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh was ousted. Now in the resulting power vacuum, militants and rebels – including Al Qaeda and IS affiliated groups – are fighting to gain control of territory. In March 2015, Huthi militias forced President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and his government into exile in Saudi Arabia. The influence of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and IS appears to be growing further; AQAP recently expanded its territorial control in Southern Yemen. Meanwhile, Yemen is facing a dire humanitarian crisis. Eighty percent of the population is in need of some form of humanitarian assistance, and almost half of the population is food insecure, making Yemen’s hunger crisis one of the worst in the world. PRAY Pray that the secret gatherings of believers from Muslim backgrounds would glorify God. Pray that Christians would be able to somehow minister to fellow malnourished Yemenis. Pray for Al Qaeda and Islamic State militants to be exposed to the truth of the gospel.READ Romans 8:18I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
