The United Arab Emirates have benefited greatly from oil wealth, becoming a hotbed for investment and a playground for the world’s richest individuals.

Each emirate is self-governed, with federal laws applying across them all. Islam is the state religion.

There is relative freedom for Christians and although evangelism is illegal, many are coming to Christ from a number of different backgrounds.

United Arab Emirates

How to pray

  • For God to continue to bring people to himself from the many backgrounds represented in the UAE
  • For ongoing and increased openness towards the Christian faith, and for Christians to be wise but bold in their outreach
  • For the indigenous Arab population and various expatriate communities who all have limited access to effective Christian witness
