Palestinians in Jordan descend primarily from refugees who fled Palestine (the West
Bank) between 1947 and 1967 following the creation of the state of Israel. Today,
most are fully integrated into Jordanian society. Jordan is the first country to
intentionally try to integrate its Palestinian refugees.
• Jordanian Palestinians are torn between the desire to return home to the West Bank
and their new home in Jordan, which is all that most younger Palestinians know. Pray
that in Christ they might find their eternal home and an anchor for their souls.
• Palestinians in Jordan still face discrimination, and their is mounting unrest as
they are increasingly denied access to universities and other institutions. Pray
that Arab Christians in Jordan might advocate on their behalf and welcome them into
their homes and churches.
• There are around 370,000 Palestinians still living in ten UN refugee camps in
Pray that churches might be started in these
camps and permeate the atmosphere with the powerful praise and worship of Jesus.
Heavenly Father, may that which has been lost among the Palestinians be restored in
your Son Jesus. May they find in Him the hope which they are searching for.
